First, the bad news: as much as fans of Kate McCartney and Kate McLennan's excellent Australian mystery series Deadloch want it to (and we do want it to), the first season of that stellar new show doesn't go on forever. Now, some news to help cope with that reality: come August, The Lost Flowers of Alice Hart will hit streaming to deliver another twisty Aussie affair.

This one heads to the screen from the page, with Holly Ringland's 2018 novel getting the miniseries treatment. And, it features one helluva huge name leading the show. Alien and Ghostbusters legend Sigourney Weaver stars as June, the no-nonsense grandmother to the titular nine-year-old, in the seven-part drama — with the story kicking into gear when Alice loses her parents in suspicious circumstances.

On the page and on Prime Video — where The Lost Flowers of Alice Hart will debut on Friday, August 4 — Alice moves to Thornfield flower farm after the life-changing tragedy, and starts to find solace among its wildflower blooms. But her new home is also the place where secrets about her family and their past start to blossom.

Wondering about the show's mood? In both the initial teaser trailer back in June and the just-dropped new full trailer now, the series emphasises that it hails from the producers of Big Little Lies and Nine Perfect Strangers. Lambs of God's Sarah Lambert, Mustang FC's Kirsty Fisher and A League of Their Own's Kim Wilson penned the scripts, while Penguin Bloom's Glendyn Ivin directs every instalment.

As well as Weaver as Alice's grandmother, The Lost Flowers of Alice Hart stars Alycia Debnam-Carey (Fear the Walking Dead) as its namesake, plus Ayla Browne (Nine Perfect Strangers) as the younger version. The cast from there is a who's who of homegrown talent, including fellow Nine Perfect Strangers alum Asher Keddie, Leah Purcell (The Drover's Wife The Legend of Molly Johnson), Tilda Cobham-Hervey (Hotel Mumbai), Xavier Samuel (The Clearing) and Alexander England (Black Snow).

In sneak peeks that highlight the complex decades-spanning drama surrounding the titular character, the swirling lies and simmering mistrust, fire, the Aussie backdrop and the big-name stars, Frankie Adams (The Expanse), Charlie Vickers (The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power) and Sebastián Zurita (How to Survive Being Single).
