The first two episodes of the new crime drama titled Full Circle are scheduled to premiere on Max tomorrow (July 13), and after watching the trailer, we can already tell this show is about to be our next binge-watch.

The two-minute trailer perfectly sets the tone for the chaotic, high-stakes whirlwind that awaits viewers. In the first seconds of the teaser, we see a nameless man presumably talking to worried parents, Derek (Timothy Olyphant) and Sam (Claire Danes), who argues that their past actions are coming back to haunt them.

“You understand the things happening to your family are happening for a reason,” he says.

What viewers see next is a gripping turn of events that makes this intense drama seem like an absolute must-watch. Written by Ed Solomon (Men in Black, Now You See Me) and directed by Steven Soderbergh (Ocean’s series, Magic Mike), Full Circle (which already has an 80% on Rotten Tomatoes) follows two parents whose son has been kidnapped.

As the police race against the clock to find the missing boy, they soon discover a web of lies and secrets that connects multiple people in New York City.

Yup, this show is going on the top of the list.
