FX Networks has released the official trailer for the highly anticipated series, “Kindred.” 

Adapted from the celebrated novel by Hugo Award-winner Octavia E. Butler, the FX series centers on “Dana James” (Mallori Johnson), a young Black woman and aspiring writer who has uprooted her life of familial obligation and relocated to Los Angeles, ready to claim a future that, for once, feels all her own. 

But, before she can settle into her new home, she finds herself being violently pulled back and forth in time. 

She emerges at a nineteenth-century plantation, a place remarkably and intimately linked with Dana and her family. 

An interracial romance threads through Dana’s past and present, and the clock is ticking as she struggles to confront secrets she never knew ran through her blood, in this genre-breaking exploration of the ties that bind.

“Kindred” stars Mallori Johnson as “Dana James,” Micah Stock as “Kevin Franklin,” Ryan Kwanten as “Thomas Weylin,” Gayle Rankin as “Margaret Weylin,” Austin Smith as “Luke,” David Alexander Kaplan as “Rufus Weylin,” Sophina Brown as “Sarah” and Sheria Irving as “Olivia.”

Watch the official trailer below. 

Kindred” premieres on December 13 only on Hulu.
