WGN America released Thursday its first-look trailer of the show, which co-stars Shawn Doyle and Allen Leech.

"Twenty years ago, the murder of a young woman traumatized the community of Bellevue. Now, the killer is back. Or is he/she? When a high school hockey star, who is wrestling with his gender identity, goes missing and all signs point to foul play, Detective Annie Ryder must unravel all the pieces to this gripping mystery before her own life falls apart," said a synopsis accompanying the 4-minute clip. "As the case pulls her further away from her family, she is also confronted by a mysterious person from her past with disturbing answers to lingering questions and a terrifying need to play mind games."
