The Trailer For ITV's Creepy New Drama The Sister Is Here
A brand new creepy drama is coming to ITV just in time for Halloween.
The Sister, written by Luther writer Neil Cross, stars Russell Tovey (Years and Years) as Nathan, a man with a terrible secret he hoped he could put behind him.
But one night an old acquaintance called Bob (played by Doctor Foster's Bertie Carvel) arrives and threatens to completely destroy Nathan's life.
An official synopsis reads: "How far would you go to keep a secret?
"One rainy evening, Nathan is surprised by an unwelcome face from the past.
"Nathan has never been able to forget the worst night of his life: a party that led to the sudden, shocking death of a young woman.
"Only he and Bob (Carvel), an eccentric old acquaintance, know what really happened... and they've resolved to keep it that way.
"But years later, Bob appears at Nathan's door with terrifying news that threatens to tear Nathan's world apart. Because Nathan has his own secrets now.

"Secrets that could destroy everything he has desperately fought to build for himself and his family."
Speaking about the role, Tovey said: "The Sister is going to challenge me as an actor more than I've ever been challenged before.
"As a web of lies, that he thought was dead and buried, comes back to haunt Nathan, he sinks deeper and deeper into the horror of the event that happened ten years ago."
The Sister also stars Game of Thrones' star Amrita Acharia, Nina Toussaint White and Paul Bazely.
The new four-part series is inspired by Cross's book Burial and he's promised viewers that it's going be pretty bloody creepy.
Cross said: "Nathan, Bob and Holly have been with me for many years. I couldn't be more excited to see them brought to life by Russell Tovey, Bertie Carvel and Amrita Acharia."
He added: "Our job is to make viewers want to sleep with the lights on. We're looking forward to it."
An official broadcast date hasn't been released yet but we do know that it'll land on ITV at some point in October.
