It's already been picked up for a second season, but on Wednesday night the world got its first terrifying glimpse of Outcast, the new Cinemax Original Series from The Walking Dead creator Robert Kirkman.

Don't let those smiling faces fool you. This is a show that has the potential to "scare us to our core," according to Cinemax Original Programming president Kary Antholis

Watch the trailer for a taste of what he means:

The scares begin on Cinemax this Friday, June 3 at 10 p.m. ET. But if you're feeling particularly brave, the pilot can be watched right now on Cinemax.com.
