If the trailer is of any indication, Echoes, a new Netflix mini-series, is sure to keep fans up at night once it debuts on the streaming platform on August 19. 

The Australian program stars Michelle Monaghan as both Leni and Gina, identical twin sisters who, according to an official synopsis, "have secretly swapped their lives since they were children." 

As shown in the pretty gruesome and certainly haunting new trailer for the series, one of the sisters goes missing and sets off a chain of events that will likely lead to the unveiling of a variety of secrets. 

"Since they were children, Leni and Gina have secretly swapped lives, culminating in a double life as adults," reads the synopsis. "They share two homes, two husbands and a child but everything in their perfectly choreographed world is thrown into disarray when one of the sisters goes missing."

Who stars in Echoes on Netflix?

Michelle, whose most recent TV role was as Eva Geller on the Netflix mini-series Messiah in 2020, plays both protagonists in the new program, which actually boasts a stellar cast. 

The seven episodes will star Matt Bomer as Jack Beck and Daniel Sunjata as Charlie Davenport, Leni and Gina’s respective husbands.

Ali Stroker of Glee fame will take on the role of Claudia and Karen Robinson will play Sheriff Louise Floss.
