The teaser trailer for HBO Max’s Station Eleven depicts a world ravaged by a pandemic. Based on Emily St. John Mandel’s 2014 novel of the same name, Station Eleven follows several characters during the onset and aftermath of an apocalyptic flu pandemic. The book landed on several lists of the best books of 2014, with the Station Eleven miniseries originally announced all the way back in June 2019. The timing of the announcement, which arrived more than half a year before the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic that’s since changed the world, makes the show oddly prescient, and production was ultimately halted early last year before finishing up this past July. Mackenzie Davis and Himesh Patel are set to lead the ensemble cast, which also includes Lori Petty and David Cross, among many others.
Now, HBO Max has released the official teaser trailer for Station Eleven. Overlaid with a somber cover version of Jackie DeShannon’s “What the World Needs Now Is Love,” the trailer opens with Patel’s character buying supplies at a grocery store and having a coded conversation with a store employee, who asks if he’s stocking up because of “that thing.” The trailer quickly shows images of the world descending into chaos, including an overrun hospital and a ferris wheel engulfed in flames.

The 10-episode series is created and written by Patrick Somerville, who also created Netflix’s acclaimed miniseries, Maniac, starring Emma Stone and Jonah Hill. Hiro Murai, a prolific music video director who’s helmed several episodes of Atlanta, is directing the series. Station Eleven will begin streaming on HBO Max on December 16.
