Lovecraft Country arrives on HBO this August, and a new trailer hints at some of the real-world and otherworldly horror to come. HBO has released a new trailer for the series, which stars Jonathan Majors, Michael Kenneth Williams, Courtney B. Vance, and Jurnee Smollett. You can see the preview below.

The trailer reveals more footage from the series, which is executive produced by Jordan Peele, J.J. Abrams, Misha Green, Bill Carraro, Yann Demange, Daniel Sackheim, and David Knoller. Green also serves as showrunner for the adaptation of Matt Ruff’s 2016 novel.

Atticus Freeman (Jonathan Majors) as he joins up with his friend Letitia (Jurnee Smollett-Bell) and his Uncle George (Courtney B. Vance) to embark on a road trip across 1950s Jim Crow America in search of his missing father (Michael Kenneth Williams). This begins a struggle to survive and overcome both the racist terrors of white America and the terrifying monsters that could be ripped from an H.P. Lovecraft paperback
