at .

Bringing iconic franchises back is par for the course these days, and Paramount's take on Fatal Attraction looks very watchable.

The official trailer dropped Wednesday morning, and the casting alone makes it worth tuning in.

The series stars Joshua Jackson as Dan Gallagher, Lizzy Caplan as Alex Forrest, Amanda Peet as Beth Gallagher, and Alyssa Jirrels as Ellen Gallagher.

Also starring is Toby Huss as Mike Gerard, Reno Wilson as Detective Earl Brooker, and Brian Goodman as Arthur Tomlinson.

Fatal Attraction "is a deep-dive reimagining of the classic psychosexual thriller and '80s cultural touchstone," Paramount+ teases.

The new series will explore fatal attraction and the timeless themes of marriage and infidelity through the lens of modern attitudes toward strong women, personality disorders, and coercive control.

In the official trailer, we witness the tension rising between Dan and Alex in an elevator as the latter wonders what will happen if they bring the elevator to a grinding halt.

Things get hot and heavy between the pair throughout the trailer, but it becomes as clear as day that Alex might be a bit obsessed with Dan.

The trailer's closing scene shows Dan returning home to find Alex speaking to his wife before revealing that they already know each other.

The premiere date in South Korea will be announced at a later date.
