For exactly two years now, we as a society have been forced to endure a serious lack of Claire Danes on our screens. The series finale of Homeland aired on Showtime on April 26, 2020, and ever since then, she’s given us nothing. (Which is totally excusable during a global pandemic, but we miss you, Claire! We miss your soothingly deep voice and propensity for intense eye contact!)

Thankfully, our suffering will soon be over. On Tuesday, AppleTV+ shared the first trailer for the drama series The Essex Serpent. Set in Victorian England, it stars the one and only Danes—wearing period costumes and speaking in a British accent, no less.

Adapted from the novel of the same name by Sarah Perry, The Essex Serpent tells the story of a small puritanical town tormented by a mythical beast. Danes plays Cora Seaborne, a widow and amateur paleontologist who becomes fascinated by stories of the serpent and believes it’s real. She moves to Essex to investigate, connecting with the local pastor, played by Tom Hiddleston, and his family.
