Freeform debuted a new show, Siren, to a crowd of nearly 1000 fans at New York Comic Con. I had the opportunity to be a part of that crowd and got the chance to see the first episode. Believe me when I say, it’s a show you won’t want to miss.
The show follows marine biologists who notice something going on in the waters of their small town, which leads to a fantastical discovery.
“The coastal town of Bristol Cove, known for its legend of once being home to mermaids, is turned upside down when a mysterious girl (Eline Powell) appears and begins wreaking havoc upon the quaint village. Using their resources, marine biologists Ben (Alex Roe) and Maddie (Fola Evans-Akingbola) must work together to find out who and what drove this mermaid out of her home, and are there more like her out there?”
Mixing a bit of mythology with modern day motifs, Siren captures the audiences attention throughout the whole first episode and leaves us wanting more.
Aside from an amazing premise, the show’s diverse cast is one to look out for and you’re sure to fall in love with them.
