The latest teaser trailer for the CW’s upcoming Cult (premiering February 19th) seems to be borrowing from FOX’s The Following in terms of its no holds barred depictions of rabid followers willing to do just about anything for their cult leader – including murder.

The new series, which looks to be slightly darker fare than the CW is currently producing, follows journalist Jeff Sefton’s (Matt Davis) whose brother mysteriously disappears after claiming a hit TV show (named Cult) intends to harm him. And it appears that Jeff’s brother is not the first casualty related to the show and its cult of followers.

Jeff soon uncovers a dark underworld behind the show – including its many obsessed fans.

The only person willing to help Jeff is Skye, a young research assistant for Cult, who has also started to grow suspicious of the increasingly dark happenings surrounding the show.

Catch the series premiere February 19th on the CW.

Cult stars Robert Knepper (Prison Break, Heroes) Matt Davis (The Vampire Diaries) and Jessica Lucas (Melrose Place, Cloverfield).
