If you enjoyed The Handmaid's Tale, we have a feeling that you will be obsessed with brand new series Alias Grace. And the best part is that it's coming to Netflix, so it's totally bingeable. 

The streaming site has adapted its own Margaret Atwood novel, historical fiction story, Alias Grace. Based on the trailer, the miniseries is set to be equally gripping and terrifying, which is exactly what we need now that The Handmaid's Tale has wrapped. 

Netflix MENA Alias Grace

According to Netflix, the murder thriller series follows Grace Marks, "a poor, young Irish immigrant and domestic servant in Upper Canada who, along with stable hand James McDermott, was convicted of the brutal murders of their employer, Thomas Kinnear, and his housekeeper, Nancy Montgomery, in 1843.

"James was hanged while Grace was sentenced to life imprisonment. Grace became one of the most enigmatic and notorious women of 1840s Canada for her supposed role in the sensational double murder, and was eventually exonerated after 30 years in jail. Her conviction was controversial, and sparked much debate about whether Grace was actually involved in the murder, or merely an unwitting accessory."

The six-part series stars Sarah Gordon, Edward Holcroft and True Blood's Anna Paquin, and will debut on November 3
