Showtime has debuted the first trailer for its upcoming small-screen take on John Ajvide Lindqvist's 2004 novel Let The Right One In, which is set to premiere on Sunday, October 9 at 10 p.m. ET/PT.

Previously adapted in 2008 by director Tomas Alfredson, an American remake titled Let Me In starring Chloe Grace Moretz followed from Matt Reeves in 2010.

Based on this teaser, it's safe to assume this latest take on the material will be making some significant changes to the original story.

Led by Oscar-nominee Demián Bichir (A Better Life), the 10-episode series from Tomorrow Studios (Snowpiercer) also stars Tony winner Anika Noni Rose (Dreamgirls, Power), Grace Gummer (Mr. Robot), Madison Taylor Baez (Selena: The Series), Kevin Carroll (Snowfall), Ian Foreman (Merry Wish-Mas), Jacob Buster (Colony) and Nick Stahl (Fear the Walking Dead).

"The series centers on Mark (Bichir) and his daughter Eleanor (Baez), whose lives were changed 10 years earlier when she was turned into a vampire. Locked in at age 12, perhaps forever, Eleanor lives a closed-in life, able to go out only at night, while her father does his best to provide her with the human blood she needs to stay alive.

With these emotionally charged and terrifying ingredients as a starting point, “Let the Right One In” will upend genre expectations, turning a naturalistic lens on human frailty, strength and compassion."

Let the Right One In quickly establishes itself as a thrilling, high-stakes drama that asks the question: How far would you go to save your child from the monsters out there – would you risk becoming a monster yourself?” said Amy Israel, Executive Vice President, Scripted Programming, Showtime Networks Inc.

“Demián Bichir is one of the world’s most dynamic and engrossing actors, and his charisma and vulnerability will surely bring Andrew Hinderaker’s exquisite script to life, guided by Seith Mann’s deft direction. We couldn’t be more excited about the potential of this show.”
