Well, the Television Academy should go ahead and get a jump on engraving some Emmy Awards, because there's no way the upcoming Netflix limited series Sirens won't be walking away with a few wins.

On July 1, Netflix officially announced the dark comedy limited series Sirens, which comes from Maid creator Molly Smith Metzler as an adaptation of her play Elemeno Pea. The leading stars of the series will be Academy Award winner Julianne Moore, Emmy Award nominee Meghann Fahy, and rising star Milly Alcock. See? It's going to be a huge awards contender.

Beyond the incredible talent of Metzler behind the camera as the showrunner, writer, and executive producer, the series will also be executive produced by LuckyChap, and if you're a Barbie fan, you will recognize that name. That's right, Oscar-nominated actress and producer Margot Robbie executive produces Sirens along with husband Tom Ackerley and Dani Gorin.

Moore stars in the series as philanthropist and animal activist Michaela Kell, who leads a luxurious cult-like life with her billionaire husband, Peter. Simone, played by Alcock, begins working as Michaela's assistant, and their relationship takes an uncomfortable turn that has Simone's troubled but loyal sister Devon, played by Fahy, wondering what's going on with her little sister.

Here's how Netflix describes Sirens:

"Devon thinks her sister Simone has a really creepy relationship with her new boss, the enigmatic socialite Michaela Kell. Michaela’s cult-ish life of luxury is like a drug to Simone, and Devon has decided it’s time for an intervention. When Devon tracks her sister down to say WTF, she has no idea what a formidable opponent Michaela will be. Told over the course of one explosive weekend at The Kells’ lavish beach estate, Sirens is an incisive, sexy, and darkly funny exploration of women, power, and class."

Doesn't the series sound so captivating?! I don't know about you, but I'm ready for Sirens to be on my Netflix watch list like yesterday. The show sounds similar to series like Big Little Lies, Nine Perfect Strangers, Dead to Me, and others that are a fun, mysterious, a bit humorous, and overall the perfect bite-sized shows to binge-watch during the summertime.

Netflix hasn't yet revealed how many episodes Sirens will have, but Metzler's previous limited series with the streamer contained 10 episodes. Following the success of the Emmy-nominated series, Metzler partnered with Netflix for an overall deal, and Sirens marks the first title to come out of that deal. This time around, Metzler's series has even more star power, including Watchmen director Nicole Kassell helming the first two episodes.

All three members of the cast are coming off of huge, critically acclaimed projects. Moore starred in last year's Netflix dark dramedy May December, which earned the star a Golden Globe nomination. She also starred in this year's Starz limited series Mary & George. Meanwhile, Fahy and Alcock both made star-making waves on HBO with Fahy's role in The White Lotus and Alcock's role in House of the Dragon. Fahy next stars in Netflix's forthcoming drama series The Perfect Couple.

Netflix also didn't provide details on when production on the series begins, though we shouldn't expect the series to premiere on the streamer until sometime in 2025.
