Winona Ryder will star in a new supernatural drama series for Netflix set in the 1980s.

This will be a first for Winona Ryder, best known for her turns in Reality Bites and Girl, Interrupted, who has yet to star as a regular in a TV series.

In the Montauk-set drama, Winona Ryder will play a working-class single mom whose two-year-old son mysteriously disappears.

Winona Ryder will play Joyce, the mother of the missing 2-year-old. According to TV.com, in the quest to rescue her son, she will summon a strength she never knew she had, which presumably is the supernatural component of the show.

The as of yet untitled series hails from brothers Matt and Ross Duffer, who most recently worked as writers/producers on the Fox series, Wayward Pines.

According to Time, the plot will feature supernatural overtones as family, friends and cops try to uncover the truth about the what happened to the boy.

David Harbour has also been cast as the beach town’s police chief investigating the case. The eight-episode show will premiere next year.

Who's excited to see Winona Ryder hit the big screen in what promises to be a creepy new show on Netflix?
