The clip also teased footage from “Dickinson,” which tells Emily Dickinson’s coming-of-age story about her fight to find her voice. The show stars Hailee Steinfeld, who is seen crying at a dinner table in period costume in the teaser, as the titular author. Jane Krakowski and Matt Lauria also star.

Additionally, the teaser clip showed footage from “For All Mankind.” The space drama series, which hails from “Outlander” showrunner Ron Moore, is set in an alternative timeline where the space race never ended. Joel Kinnaman toplines the show, and the clip showed a spacecraft making a rapid, disruptive landing on the surface of the Moon.
