Handmaid's Tale star Elisabeth Moss in first-look trailer for thriller series Shining Girls

Catching a killer across time.

The Handmaid's Tale star Elisabeth Moss searches through time for a killer in a new trailer for Shining Girls.

Following on from a teaser last month, the latest footage from the Apple TV+ thriller series reveals more about the search for a serial killer whose crimes have hallmarks throughout many decades.

Aspiring journalist Kirby Mazrachi (Moss) recognises the latest murder has connections to an assault she'd suffered years earlier, but her investigations send her through the past looking to catch the mysterious murderer.

"He's everybody. He's nobody. He's all the time," she explains.

This time-bending thriller is based on the novel The Shining Girls by Lauren Beukes, which was recognised by the British Fantasy Society after its release in 2013.

The ensemble cast features Narcos' Wagner Moura as Dan Velazquez, the troubled reporter Kirby teams up with to track the killer (Snowpiercer's Jamie Bell).

Former Hamilton star Phillipa Soo rounds out the cast of Shining Girls, along with The Leftovers' Amy Brenneman. The original horror novel has been adapted for the screen by Strange Angel's Silka Luisa, with Leonardo DiCaprio producing.

Apple TV+ also confirmed its release plans, with the first three episodes of Shining Girls coming out simultaneously on Friday, April 29, 2022 – and then new episodes will arrive each Friday.

Moss is also set to return in the fifth season of The Handmaid's Tale. In spite of some speculation that the show could be ending soon, Moss's co-star Ann Dowd recently confirmed that "a season 5 and 6" were absolutely in the works from the writing team.

The Handmaid's Tale airs on Hulu in the US and Channel 4 in the UK.
