With just under two weeks to go until The Peripheral premieres on Prime Video, a new trailer has been released for the sci-fi thriller series as part of this weekend’s New York Comic Con. Based on William Gibson’s 2014 novel of the same name, the series follows Flynne Fisher (Chloe Grace Moretz), a young woman who makes some much needed extra money by playing VR games for the wealthy, until one night a headset transports her 70 years into the future in London, where she take a glimpse of the fate of mankind and finds herself and her family the target of dangerous forces intent on destroying them.
The Peripheral centers on Flynne Fisher, a woman trying to hold together the pieces of her broken family in a forgotten corner of tomorrow’s America. Flynne is smart, ambitious, and doomed. She has no future. Until the future comes calling for her. The Peripheral is master storyteller William Gibson’s dazzling, hallucinatory glimpse into the fate of mankind — and what lies beyond. Flynne Fisher lives in the rural American South, working at the local 3D printing shop, while earning much needed extra money playing VR games for rich people. One night she dons a headset and finds herself in futuristic London—a sleek and mysterious world, alluringly different from her own hardscrabble existence.
But this isn’t like any game she’s ever played before: Flynne begins to realize it isn’t virtual reality… it’s real. Someone in London, seventy years in the future, has found a way to open a door to Flynne’s world. And as utterly beguiling as London is… it’s also dangerous. As Flynne searches to discover who has connected their worlds, and for what purpose, her presence here sets dangerous forces into motion…forces intent on destroying Flynne and her family in her own world. Joining Chloe Grace Moretz in the cast of The Peripheral are Gary Carr, Jack Reynor, Eli Goree, Charlotte Riley, JJ Feild, Adelind Horan, T’Nia Miller, Alex Hernandez, Austin Rising, Louis Herthum, Chris Coy, Melinda Page Hamilton, Katie Leung, and Alexandra Billings.
