'NOS4A2' Preview: Vicky McQueen Knows She's Not Normal [VIDEO]

AMC has done a nice job of offering us several different "looks" at Zachary Quinto as ancient evil Charlie Manx in their supernatural fantasy-horror adaptation of Joe Hill's bestselling novel NOS4A2. Now viewers are getting a personal look at Quinto's co-star Ashleigh Cummings in a new teaser clip that first aired during Sunday night's airing of The Walking Dead. Emmy-nominee Kari Skogland (The Handmaid's Tale) is on board to direct the first two episodes, with AMC expected to premiere the 10-episode series in the summer of 2019.

Cummings' Vic McQueen is a young, working-class artist whose creativity awakens a supernatural ability to track Manx (Quinto). What Vic lacks in social confidence, she makes up for in courage, humor, and tough-as-nails grit. She strives to defeat Manx and rescue his victims without losing her mind or falling victim to him herself.

The supernatural horror series NOS4A2, based on Hill's bestselling novel of the same name, tells the story of Charlie Manx, a seductive immortal who feeds off the souls of children then deposits what remains of them into Christmasland – an icy, twisted Christmas village of Manx's imagination where every day is Christmas Day and unhappiness is against the law. Manx finds his whole world threatened when a young woman in New England discovers she has a dangerous gift.
