The Trailer For First Aussie Netflix Original 'Tidelands' Is Here

Netflix has released the first teaser-trailer for 'Tidelands' -- a supernatural crime drama shot on the coast of Queensland.

The highly-anticipated series centres on a former criminal named Cal McTeer, who tries to uncover the mysterious secrets of Orphelin Bay after the body of a local fisherman washes ashore.

The title of the show refers to a "group of sexy and dangerous half-Siren / half-human 'Tidelanders' who live in a hidden commune" -- if you weren't already convinced to tune in.

Tidelands will be the very first Australian Netflix original series, and features local stars Charlotte Best (Home & Away, Puberty Blues), Elsa Pataky (Fast And The Furious),  Aaron Jakubenko (Spartacus: War Of The Damned)  and Peter O'Brien (X-Men Origins: Wolverine).

And although half-sirens are a bit different to mermaids, everyone is already screaming "YES, MERMAIDS!" at the new trailer, seemingly hoping the series will pick up where H20: Just Add Water left off.

Tidelands will hit Netflix globally on December 14.
