Normally when it comes to anything that involves the word snakes or serpents, this writer retreats into her own head. Nope, phobia of snakes. They scary AF. That being said, you put Tom Hiddleston and Claire Danes into a television show and it has the word serpent in the title, some allowances must be made.
Their upcoming show, The Essex Serpent, “follows newly widowed Cora (played by Claire Danes) who, having being released from an abusive marriage, relocates from Victorian London to the small village of Aldwinter in Essex, intrigued by a local superstition that a mythical creature known as the Essex Serpent has returned to the area.”
The key art and two new stills from the upcoming Apple TV+ show have been released. What do you think of them? We have to admit, the poster is quite beautiful, despite the serpent.
The Essex Serpent will start streaming on the AppleTV+ platform on May 13! Will you be watching?
