Hulu Reveals First ‘Monsterland’ Images With Kelly Marie Tran, Mike Colter, And Kaitlyn Dever

When you have a cast that includes Booksmart‘s Kaitlyn Dever, Luke Cage himself Mike Colter, Orange is the New Black‘s Taylor Schilling, and Star Wars actress Kelly Marie Tran, you don’t mess around. Put them right out front. That’s what Hulu has done in these first images from their horror/fantasy anthology series, Monsterland.

Created by Mary Laws and based on the series of short stories by Nathan Ballingrud, Monsterland follows human encounters with mermaids, fallen angels and other strange beasts that drive these broken people to desperate acts, revealing a thin layer between man and monster.

Tran, who can be seen in her image sporting a blood-stained wedding dress, stars in an episode titled “Iron River, MI” in which she’ll play Lauren, who returns to her small Michigan hometown to be married. She had managed to build a new life for herself after her best friend, Elena, went missing when they were 16.

Monsterland debuts on Hulu on October 2nd.
