1st teaser for BBC's new fantasy series Atlantis channels Merlin and Hercules

The first dramatic teaser trailer for the BBC’s newest fantasy series Atlantis is here!

Since the brand-new series is made by the production team that’s brought us Merlin, with Howard Overman on board—he's the dude who gave us the awesome Misfits—it’s no wonder we’re getting a major Merlin vibe and a not-so-surprising sense of déjà vu. Sprinkle it with a bit of Doctor Who feel, and voilà!

The new trailer also reminds us of a couple of 1990s shows, such as Hercules: The Legendary Journey and Xena: Warrior Princess—and we actually like that. A lot.

Still, the Atlantis teaser trailer is also pretty darn cool in and of itself, and we’re rather excited for this brand-new fantasy series, which may end up being (hopefully) a worthy successor to Merlin. Looks like it's gonna be great fun to watch.

Atlantis, the 13-part new series, will air on BBC America on Nov. 23, 2013.
