The next episode of Hulu's horror anthology series, Into the Dark, is all about the pranks and will appropriately arrive on April Fool's Day. Titled I'm Just Fucking with You, the episode will tell the story of a man and his sister on the way to a family wedding who endure a night of increasingly frightening practical jokes during a one-night stay at a secluded motel. The official trailer arrived just today and is available above for your viewing pleasure.

The episode will star Keir O’Donnell (Wedding Crashers), Hayes MacArthur (Super Troopers 2), and Jessica McNamee (The Meg), and is written by Gregg Zehenter and Scott Barkan, with Adam Mason directing and Deftones' Chino Moreno composing. Into the Dark: I’m Just Fucking With You will premiere on April 1st, 2019.

In May, we will get a Mother’s Day story called All That We Destroy and this one is sounding wild so far. The episode will follow a geneticist who fears that her son may be becoming a serial killer, so she goes on to create a group of clones in an attempt to cure him of his psychopathic tendencies, thus allowing him to relive the murder of his first victim.

Starring in the episode is Samantha Mathis (American Psycho), Israel Broussard (Happy Death Day), Aurora Perrineau (Truth or Dare, Passengers), Dora Madison (Dexter, Friday Night Lights), and Frank Whaley (Pulp Fiction). Into the Dark: All That We Destroy is written by Sean Keller and Jim Agnew, with Chelsea Stardust directing, and will arrive on May 3rd, 2019.

For June, celebrate Father's Day with an episode titled They Come Knocking, starring Clayne Crawford, who played the character of Martin Riggs in the first two seasons of Fox’s Lethal Weapon. Reportedly due to frequent clashing with fellow co-lead Damon Wayans, he was eventually replaced by Seann William Scott for Season 3. Into the Dark will be the actor’s first television role since exiting that series.

The episode will have Crawford playing the part of a recent widower who takes his two daughters on a road trip and eventually finds his family in the crosshairs of terrifying supernatural entities. The cast will also include Josephine Langsford, Robyn Lively, Lia McHugh, and Dwight Hicks. Based on the series’ typical release schedule, we can expect this episode to debut on June 7th, 2019.

We exclusively revealed the aforementioned April Fool’s Day episode, I’m Just Fucking With You, back in October, along with another episode titled School Spirit, which should arrive by the end of the summer. That’s all we have for now but this series will surely bring us plenty more holiday horror fun as the calendar pages turn throughout the year.

Hulu’s Into the Dark continues with I’m Just Fucking with You arriving on April 1st, 2019. The first six feature-length episodes are currently streaming, so there’s no reason not to get caught up. Otherwise, stay tuned to Dead Entertainment for more coverage on this series in the coming months.
