What if there was something sinister swimming beneath the sea’s surface? In Freeform’s next epic
tale, “Siren,” the coastal town of Bristol Cove, known for its legend of once being home to
mermaids, is turned upside down when a mysterious girl (Eline Powell) appears and begins
wreaking havoc upon the small fishing town. Using their resources, marine biologists Ben (Alex
Roe) and Maddie (Fola Evans-Akingbola) must work together to find out who and what drove this
primal hunter of the deep sea to land, and are there more like her out there?
“Siren” is based on a story by Eric Wald and Dean White who both serve as executive producers.
