Prime Video has released the first trailer and poster for The Peripheral, the upcoming sci-fi thriller based on William Gibson’s book of the same name.
The series stars Chloe Grace Moretz as Flynne Fisher, a young woman who works in a 3D printing shop and making extra money by playing VR games for rich people, until she discovers that the headset she is using connects her to London, 70 years into the future, where she takes a glimpse at the fate of mankind.
The Peripheral centers on Flynne Fisher, a woman trying to hold together the pieces of her broken family in a forgotten corner of tomorrow’s America. Flynne is smart, ambitious, and doomed. She has no future. Until the future comes calling for her. The Peripheral is master storyteller William Gibson’s dazzling, hallucinatory glimpse into the fate of mankind — and what lies beyond.
Flynne Fisher lives in the rural American South, working at the local 3D printing shop, while earning much needed extra money playing VR games for rich people. One night she dons a headset and finds herself in futuristic London—a sleek and mysterious world, alluringly different from her own hardscrabble existence.
But this isn’t like any game she’s ever played before: Flynne begins to realize it isn’t virtual reality… it’s real. Someone in London, seventy years in the future, has found a way to open a door to Flynne’s world. And as utterly beguiling as London is… it’s also dangerous. As Flynne searches to discover who has connected their worlds, and for what purpose, her presence here sets dangerous forces into motion…forces intent on destroying Flynne and her family in her own world.
Joining Chloe Grace Moretz in the cast of The Peripheral are Gary Carr, Jack Reynor, Eli Goree, Charlotte Riley, JJ Feild, Adelind Horan, T’Nia Miller, Alex Hernandez, Austin Rising, Louis Herthum, Chris Coy, Melinda Page Hamilton, Katie Leung, and Alexandra Billings.
