HBO’s new series “The Outsider” arrives in a couple weeks, and I can’t wait.

The plot of the series, according to HBO‘s YouTube description, is as follows:

The 10-episode series follows police detective Ralph Anderson (Ben Mendelsohn), as he sets out to investigate the mutilated body of 11-year-old Frankie Peterson found in the Georgia woods. The mysterious circumstances surrounding this horrifying crime leads Ralph, still grieving the recent death of his own son, to bring in unorthodox private investigator Holly Gibney (Cynthia Erivo), whose uncanny abilities he hopes will help explain the unexplainable.

We’ve already had two previews released, and both of them are awesome. You can watch each of them below. (RELATED: Watch The Latest Trailer For ‘The Outsider’ On HBO With Jason Bateman)

Now, there’s also been some short promos released for the series, which stars Jason Bateman and Ben Mendelsohn, on the show’s Instagram page.

If the two previews above didn’t already get you hyped, these should get the job done. Give them all a watch below.

January 12 can’t get here fast enough. This show looks so damn cool. We already know Bateman can go dark. Look no further than “Ozark” for proof of that fact.

You know who can go even darker? Mendelsohn. His character in “Bloodline” was nothing short of chilling, and he stole the show in season one.

Sound off in the comments with what you think of the previews for “The Outsider.” I think most of you are going to be in agreement that it looks awesome.
