Is that the police? Is that a fire truck? Is that an ambulance? No, it's Netflix dropping more casting news about its upcoming original series, Sirens.

Netflix just announced Kevin Bacon and Glenn Howerton will star in Sirens, the new series from Maid creator Molly Smith Metzler. Netflix shared the news with Netflix Life via press release.

The news comes one day after Netflix announced Sirens and confirmed House of the Dragon star Milly Alcock, the great Julianne Moore, who recently starred in Netflix's May December, and The White Lotus star Meghann Fahy will star in the dark comedy.

Sirens sounds like it has all the makings of an instant hit on Netflix! According to the streamer, the dark comedy tells the story of Michaela Kell (Moore), who is "an enigmatic socialite," who has a weird relationship with her new employee, Simone (Alcock), who is the younger sister of Devon (Fahy). Devon travels to Michaela's holiday home to save her sister, but that's just the beginning of this story, which takes place over a long weekend at Michaela's island home.

In the series, Netflix revealed that Bacon will star as Peter Kell, who is Michaela's billionaire husband. This might be the first time Bacon is playing a billionaire, and I'm here for it! Peter comes from "an old money family, and he's described as "the highest-status person in every room he enters. He’s an avid outdoorsman who enjoys the occasional joint."

I don't know if anyone has picked up on this yet, but Bacon reunites with Moore. The pair starred in one of the best modern romantic comedies, Crazy, Stupid Love. In the movie, Moore's character, Emily, had an affair with Bacon's character, David Lindhagen.

In Sirens, Netflix shared that Howerton, best known for his role as Dennis on It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia, will play Ethan Corbin II. Ethan is described as "a dear friend of the Kells and lifelong bachelor who lives next door. He's a regular at the yacht club and he's rapidly burning through his trust fund."

As I mentioned, that's the perfect synopsis for a hit Netflix show. It has all the pieces to be something really special, including a talented creator, incredible premise, A-list cast, and more.

According to Netflix, he series is based on the play Elemeno Pea by Metzler.

Netflix has not shared any details about production or when Sirens will be released on the streaming service. According to production listings, pre-production on Sirens started in February 2024. We can't verify if that's accurate, but what we do know is that it's going to be a long time until this one comes out.

Best-case scenario: Production begins sometime later this year and it's on Netflix by late summer or early fall in 2025. But, there's a lot that has to happen before that point.

We'll share more news about Sirens as we find out. I can't imagine this is the full cast, especially with those huge stars attached, but we'll just have to wait and see.
