The official trailer for HBO’s upcoming six-episode drama series The Time Traveler’s Wife is here, along with a confirmed release date of Sunday, May 15.
Directed by David Nutter and based on the novel by Audrey Niffenegger, The Time Traveler’s Wife tells the story of the intricate, magical, and emotional love story between Clare Abshire (Rose Leslie) and Henry DeTamble (Theo James), a couple with a huge problem in their marriage … time travel.
Watch the trailer below.
Clare is fiery, clever, and unstoppable. At the age of six, she meets an imaginary friend: a kind and funny man, sometimes old, sometimes young, who appears in the woods behind her house and tells her tales of the future. As the years pass and Clare grows older, she eventually realizes that Henry is a time traveler, and she has a literal date with destiny. One day she’s going to meet a young man called Henry DeTamble, whom she’ll know very well but who won’t recognize her at all, and she will become the time traveler’s wife.
Henry has been a time traveler since he was eight, but it’s not quite as convenient as it sounds. It’s a condition that he can’t control. He can lose his grip on the current moment — sometimes for no reason at all — and suddenly fall into the past or future without warning, stuck there for an indeterminate amount of time. But one day his dangerous life is inexplicably changed when he meets a beautiful redhead in the library where he works. He’s never met her before, but Clare Abshire claims that she’s known him for her entire life.
The Time Traveler’s Wife also stars Desmin Borges, Natasha Lopez, Caitlin Shorey, Everleigh McDonell, Brian Altemus, Jason David, Michael Park, Jaime Ray Newman, Taylor Richardson, Peter Graham, Kate Siegel, Josh Stamberg, Chelsea Frei, Marcia DeBonis, Will Brill, and Spencer House.
Don’t miss The Time Traveler’s Wife when it premieres on HBO on May 15! The series will also be available to stream on HBO Max.
