What if there were something sinister
swimming beneath the sea’s surface? In
Freeform’s new original drama “Siren,” the
coastal town of Bristol Cove, known for its
legend of once being home to mermaids, is turned
upside down when a mysterious girl (Eline
Powell) appears and begins wreaking havoc upon
the quaint village. Using their resources,
marine biologists Ben (Alex Roe) and Maddie
(Fola Evans-Akingbola) must work together to
find out who and what drove this mermaid out of
her home, and are there more like her out there?
The series stars Eline Powell (“King Arthur:
Legend of the Sword”) as Ryn, Alex Roe (“The 5th
Wave”) as Ben Pownall, Fola Evans-Akingbola
(“Game of Thrones”) as Maddie Bishop, Ian Verdun
(“Lucifer”) as Xander McClure, Rena Owen (“Star
Wars” Episodes II and III) as Helen Hubbell and
Sibo Mlambo (“Teen Wolf”) as Donna.
“Siren” is based on a story by Eric Wald and
Dean White who both serve as executive
producers. Emily Whitesell (“Finding Carter”) is
on board as showrunner and executive producer.
Brad Luff, Nate Hopper and RD Robb are also
attached as executive producers.
