Aaron Paul is involved with a cult in new trailer for Hulu’s upcoming drama The Path


Aaron Paul’s characters just can’t stay out of trouble: The Breaking Bad star has a new series on the way, and this time, he’ll be mixed up with a cult instead of drugs. Hulu has released a trailer for the upcoming drama, and there are clearly problems ahead for Paul’s character, Eddie.

Nothing too crazy happens at first. Cal (Hugh Dancy) opens the trailer by asking Eddie what he found when he came to the cult, and Eddie says, “home.” It sounds nice, but then Cal’s fear-centric messaging comes through quickly thereafter: “The future is coming. Poverty, political instability, terrorism. Everything we know will collapse.”

Over the course of the series, we’ll see how the cult impacts the lives and the beliefs of Eddie, his wife, Sarah (Michelle Monaghan), and their kids. The preview shows clear signs of conflict, from Sarah telling Eddie he has been distant, to their son getting involved in a fight at school. That’s not the worst of it; the trailer gets much darker as still more ominous things happen. Over the course of the preview, we see a woman hooked up to a very unsafe-looking device, a snake crawling on a man in a hospital bed, and someone who literally has blood on their hands.

Paul set a pretty high bar for himself with his Emmy-winning Breaking Bad performance, but The Path definitely looks intriguing. In addition to starring in the upcoming series, he voices Todd Chavez on Netflix’s animated series BoJack Horseman, a show he also executive produces. Paul’s upcoming projects include multiple films, including Triple 9, Central Intelligence, and Come and Find Me.

The Path is created by Jessica Goldberg, a Parenthood producer; she’ll executive produce the new Hulu series alongside Jason Katims and Michelle Lee of True Jack Productions.

The Path will be available on Hulu on March 30.
