Look images from Netflix's Maniac starring Jonah Hill and Emma Stone

'Maniac' First Look: Emma Stone and Jonah Hill Experience Cary Fukunaga's Psychological Experiment

The streaming giant has debuted the first look at "Maniac", the upcoming limited series from "True Detective" and "Beasts of No Nation" director Cary Fukunaga.

Netflix is already having an exceptional year when it comes to new original series thanks to titles like "Wild Wild Country", "On My Block", and "Lost In Space", but the greatest offering might still be yet to come.

The Plot: Maniac is the story of two strangers who find themselves caught up in a mind-bending pharmaceutical trial gone awry. And looking at these images, we can see that Justin Theroux and Sally Field are also a part of the cast.

There is now not a lot of information regarding the upcoming television series' plot. As a result, they enter a fantasy world, one filled with trolls, elves, and fairies. The series is based on a 2014 Norwegian series of the same name by Hakon Bast Mossige and Espen PA Lervaag, and will premier with ten episodes later this year. The photos also reveal that fans could be in for a psychedelic experience as evident in the series' colorful sets and funky theme. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Hill and Stone are reuniting for another comedic adventure.

The Netflix comedy train just keeps on rolling.

Netflix hasn't released Maniac's premiere date yet, so there's no telling how long we'll have to wait to see if Jonah Hill is playing the titular role.
