Earlier this week, Tabu was announced to be a part of the cast. Although we don’t see her in the teaser, we are rather intrigued to know what her character is going to be like and how pivotal it would be to the story. The teaser gives the world of Bene Gesserit a powerful feel and the women-led series has thriller, action, sex and politics. The star cast also includes Emily Watson, Olivia Williams, Travis Fimmel, Johdi May, Mark Strong, Sarah Sofie Boussnina, Josh Heuston, Chloe Lea and Jade Anouka. The premiere date for the series is still under wraps but it is expected to release sometime later this year. Alison Runner is the creator of the series and Anna Foster has directed multiple episodes of the show.
