If you were wondering where Dollhouse’s Dr Saunders was driving off to in such a hurry earlier this series, here’s your answer. Actress Amy Acker passed on season two of Whedon’s imprint-frenzy romp to appear in ABC’s new serial killer thriller Happy Town.
Set in a small Minnesota Town that was once the scene of a spate of mysterious kidnappings, the series follows the arrival of newcomer Henley Boone to the area. Naturally, Henley’s got a dark secret (as have a lot of residents) and seven years after the abductions stopped, a serial killer is about to begin a murderous rampage…
Admittedly, the killer goes by the name The Magic Man, which makes the following trailer a tad comical. But we’re sure we’ll get over that.
Anyway, there’s a fantastic cast lining up with Acker. Six Feet Under’s Frances Conroy, ER’s Abraham Benrubi, Mr Friendly off Lost, Sam Neill from The Tudors… Check out this trailer and prepare to be scared when the series kicks off early next year in the States.
