Take a bite out of Comic-Con.

If you’re a fan of vampires, post-apocalyptic sci-fi, or the idea of Mark-Paul Gosselaar saving the day, you’ll want to check out Fox’s upcoming midseason drama series, The Passage, based on Justin Cronin’s bestselling trilogy of novels.

While the show doesn’t debut until 2019, Fox is previewing the high-concept series at San Diego Comic-Con, and IGN has an exclusive first look at the mini-poster that the network will be handing out free at its booth during the convention. Check it out below:

Executive produced by Ridley Scott and Dawn of the Planet of the Apes director Matt Reeves, The Passage focuses on Project NOAH, a secret medical facility where scientists are experimenting with a dangerous virus that could lead to the cure for all disease, but also carries the potential to wipe out the human race. When a young girl, Amy Bellafonte (Saniyya Sidney), is chosen to be a test subject, Federal Agent Brad Wolgast (Gosselaar) is the man who is tasked with bringing her in. Ultimately, however, Wolgast becomes her surrogate father, as he tries to protect her at any cost. Friday Night Lights writer Liz Heldens penned the pilot script and executive produces.

The Passage has had a long road to the screen, with Scott’s production company, Scott Free, acquiring the book rights in 2007, before the first novel was even published. While it was initially envisioned as a movie adaptation, the producers ultimately decided the story would be better suited for a TV series.

The Passage Comic-Con panel will take place Friday, July 20 at 6 p.m. in Room 6A, with panelists including Gosselaar, Sidney, Heldens, and Cronin, along with Henry Ian Cusick, Jamie McShane, and executive producer/director Jason Ensler.

Laura Prudom is the Executive TV Editor at IGN. You can talk to her on Twitter at @LauinLA.
