Hulu has released the official U.S. trailer for "Das Boot," a new eight-episode German WWII drama series, a sequel to author Lothar-Gunther Buchheim's classic 1973 bestseller of the same name, which was notably adapted into the award-winning 1981 German submarine thriller from Oscar-nominated filmmaker Wolfgang Petersen.

The series, which takes place in 1942 nine months after the events of the 1981 adaptation, follows the claustrophobic wartime exploits of German submarine U-612 and its crew. The drama also concurrently charts the audacious deeds of French resistance fighters who are taking on the Nazi regime in occupied La Rochelle, France.

Directed by Austrian filmmaker Andreas Prochaska (The Dark Valley) and filmed in multiple languages, including German, English, and French, "Das Boot" brings together an ensemble cast of international actors that include Lizzy Caplan (Masters of Sex), Vicky Krieps (Phantom Thread), Rick Okon (The Invisibles), Tom Wlaschiha (Game of Thrones), James D'Arcy (Dunkirk), and Vincent Kartheiser (Mad Men).

"Das Boot," which was renewed for a second season, has already premiered internationally back in November, but is set to make its US debut next month on Hulu starting Monday, June 17th.

During the Autumn of 1942, in occupied France, U-612 is now ready for its maiden voyage, preparing to head into the increasingly brutal warfare with its young crewmen, including the new captain, Klaus Hoffmann. As the 40 young men take on their first mission, they struggle with the cramped and claustrophobic conditions of life underwater. Their personalities are pushed to the limit as tensions rise and loyalties begin to shatter.
