We’re still just over a month away from the debut of The Outsider television series on HBO, but today at least brought us an amazing new trailer for the series to hold us over until its premiere next year on January 12th. Check it out in the embedded video above!
The series is, of course, based on a 2018 bestselling novel by Stephen King, who seems to be completely on board with the direction the showrunners are taking with the series if a tweet he posted earlier today is any indication. See what the prolific author had to say about the new show below.
