In the trailer, one can hear the eerie conversations between the characters. The calls have everything from screams to doubtful conversations, leaving the viewers wanting to know as to what happened next?

Speaking with Entertainment Weekly, director Fede Álvarez said that the series is meant to evoke conversations and keep people guessing at every turn.

He further added, "This was such thrill because unlike films, where you have one idea and you have to stick to it, this was a chance to come up with many ideas and stories for each episode that's still telling one single story. By the time you get to the end, you'll want to go back to the beginning. It was very exciting to have the actors come play with us in this sandbox. They felt it too and couldn't wait to do something they've never done before. I picked so many people I've always wanted to work with like Mark Duplass, Aaron Taylor-Johnson, and so many others".

All nine episodes will begin streaming on Apple TV from 19 March.
