The mist is coming.
Spike takes on Stephen King's eerie novella, The Mist, in its newest scripted offering, and the sci-fi/horror drama may be the TV show you've been waiting for. Named one of ET's summer shows you simply cannot miss (King even gave it his seal of approval), The Mist centers on a mysterious mist that takes over a small town in Maine, where its residents soon discover that hidden in the mist are monsters that kill anything that moves.

In ET's exclusive sneak peek from Thursday's series premiere, 16-year-old Alex Copeland (Gus Birney) confides in her friend, Adrian (Russell Posner), after she wakes up from a high school party, with a heavy suspicion that she may have been raped by popular football jock, Jay (Luke Cosgrove).
"I don't know what to do. I can't watch TV, I can't read. I wanted to listen to music, you need to pick a song and the song I pick will always be the first song I heard after,,,," Alex says, drifting off, not wanting to say what may have happened. When Adrian suggests she listen to a "bad song," like "a stupid Katy Perry song or something," Alex comes to Perry's defense -- thankful for her friend's sweet suggestion.

"Can't let them win, you know?" Adrian says. "You know how this is going to go. Everyone loves Jay. They'll say 'You're a liar,' 'It's your fault.' The whole town." Watch the exclusive sneak peek above.
The Mist premieres Thursday at 10 p.m. ET/PT on Spike.
