The photo shows Will Ransome (Hiddleston), a clergy member in a small village, and Cora Seaborne (Danes), a wealthy widow, walk together on a beach.

"Something dark is in the depths. #ClaireDanes and @twhiddleston meet for a mysterious VIctorian romance," the caption reads.

The Essex Serpent is based on the Sarah Perry novel of the same name. The story follows Cora (Danes) as she moves to Essex to investigate rumors of the Essex Serpent, a mythical sea dragon.

The TV series is written by Anna Symon and directed by Clio Barnard. Frank Dillane, Clémence Poésy and Hayley Squires also star.
