With just a few weeks to go for the release of Eric, Netflix has released the official trailer for the drama series starring Benedict Cumberbatch in the lead role.

The 2.17-minute-long trailer showcases the Dr Strange actor as a desperate father named Vincent searching for his son Edgar in 1980s New York. He is a puppeteer who is wracked by guilt after his son disappears, as well as obsessed with the nine-year-old’s drawings to create a new puppet out of it. He is convinced that if he can get the character on TV his son will come home. He almost goes to the extent of losing his mind as he alienates himself from his family, work colleagues and the detectives.

The emotional thriller, which also stars Gaby Hoffmann and McKinley Belcher III in key roles, will hit the streamer on May 30.

Dan Fogler, Clarke Peters, Ivan Morris Howe, Phoebe Nicholls, David Denman, Bamar Kane, Adepero Odyue, Alexis Molnar, and Roberta Colindrez, round out the supporting cast of Eric.

The six part series is created by Abi Morgan, who also serves as the executive producer. Lucy Forbes has helmed and executive produced the series. Cumberbatch, Morgan, Jane Featherstone, and Lucy Dyke also serve as executive producers.
