‘Siren’ is an American drama television series that airs on Freeform. The show first premiered on March 29, 2018. It was earlier known as ‘The Deep’ and includes elements of thriller, horror, and mystery, making it a riveting experience. Dean White and Eric Wald are the creators of the show, while Disney–ABC Domestic Television is the distributor. Stockton Drive Inc. and Freeform Original Productions are the companies backing the project, while Peter Lhokta serves as the producer.
The show revolves around a town obsessed with mermaids. Everything goes for a toss when a mysterious woman comes looking for her sister, and as the plot unfurls so does the myth about the mermaids and all the shock and awe that accompanies this revelation. Needless to say that the series has quickly found a strong fan following and has received praise for taking the elements out of a traditional narrative and flipping them on their tails, for maintaining a good pace with the plot progression, and for the portrayal of the potentially menacing and violent mythical creatures in a manner which is surprisingly humanizing and empathetic.
Siren Cast: Who is in it?
The main cast of ‘Sirens’ has Eline Powell as Ryn Fisher, a teenage mermaid who is forced to come ashore and seek help when her sister gets captured. Alex Roe appears as the Marine biologist Ben Pownall who assists Ryn, Fola Evans-Akingbola plays Madeline Bishop and Rena Owen appears as Helen Hawkings among others. Eline Powell has starred in the ‘Quartet’, ‘Novitiate’ and ‘King Arthur: Legend of the Sword’. But her role as Bianca in ‘Game of Thrones‘ made her a household name.
The main cast is of course joined by a host of talented recurring and supporting characters, and we hope in the upcoming season the main cast returns as well and is joined by some new faces who will make things exciting in this already suspenseful tale about mythical creatures.
Siren Plot: What is it about?
The story of ‘Sirens’ is based in the mysterious coastal town, Bristol Cove, which is believed to have once been a house to mermaids. Ryn creates havoc on the coastal town, and the intention behind her actions remains a mystery. Marine biologists Ben and Maddie work together to find out the identity of Ryn and her hidden plans. As the story unfolds, it is known that Ryn is a mermaid and is in search of her mermaid sister who gets caught by the fishermen and lands up in the military custody.
