IDW’s The October Faction, by writer Steve Niles and artist Damien Worm, is getting an adaptation from Netflix. The first trailer for October Faction dropped today, along with the trailer for Locke & Key.
October Faction stars J.C. MacKenzie and Tamara Taylor as Fred and Deloris Allen, two seemingly dull insurance agents who are actually monster hunters. Upon returning with their kids to their hometown in upstate New York after the death of Fred’s father, the two have to keep their hunting activity a secret while discovering the town isn’t as peaceful and quiet as they thought.
The series also stars Aurora Burghart and Gabriel Darku as the 17-year-old Allen twins, Viv and Geoff, along with Shadowhunters alum Maxim Roy as Alice Harlow.
The first season will have ten episodes, developed by Damien Kindler (Sleepy Hollow, Krypton), who also will executive produce along with Niles, James Thorpe, Thomas Walden, and Eric Birnberg. Produced by High Park Entertainment in association with IDW Entertainment, the show begins streaming January 23.
