Time travel is all the rage these days, and ABC is looking to put its own spin on the subgenre with Time After Time. Want to see H.G. Wells in action?

The network has dropped a full trailer for the new series, which essentially follows H.G. Wells as he uses his time machine to chase down Jack the Ripper in the future. Seeing the format in action here, it definitely feels like Sleepy Hollow meets, well, The Time Machine. The hunt for Jack the Ripper will seemingly provide the procedural element to keep it rolling week to week. However, where shows like (the excellent) Timeless over at NBC hit a different era every week, Time After Time will be taking its (umm) time in each era. 

Time After Time stars Josh Bowman as Jack the Ripper and Freddie Stroma as H.G. Wells. The two-hour series premiere hits Sunday, March 5, on ABC.
