 “Siren”
Premieres Thursday, March 29 at 8 PM ET/PT on Freeform
 
          “Siren” takes us inside Bristol Cove—a coastal town known for its legend of once being home to mermaids. When the arrival of a mysterious girl proves this folklore all too true, the battle between man and sea takes a very vicious turn as these predatory beings return to reclaim their right to the ocean.

 
 
         The series stars Alex Roe (“The 5th Wave”) as Ben, a bright marine biologist who finds himself drawn to Ryn, a mysterious new girl in town played by Eline Powell (“Game of Thrones”), who is a strange young woman with a deep dark secret. Fola Evans-Akingbola (“An American Exorcism”) stars as Maddie, also a marine biologist who works with Ben, and is highly suspicious of Ryn. Ian Verdun (“Life’s a Drag”) stars as Xander, a deep sea fisherman on a quest to uncover the truth; and Rena Owen (“Star Wars” Episodes II and III) as Helen, the town eccentric who seems to know more about the mermaids than she lets on.

         In the March 29 premiere at 8 PM, “Pilot,” the coastal town of Bristol Cove, once known for being home to mermaids, is turned upside down with the arrival of a mysterious girl. Then in the 9 PM episode, “The Lure,” Ben and crew of The North Star uncover a device emitting a strange sound. Meanwhile, Ryn finds shelter in the home of the local folklore expert. What if there was something sinister swimming beneath the sea’s surface? Mermaid legends come to life in this gripping new drama series.
