We’re all still holding our breath for that Beetlejuice sequel, but in the meantime, Winona Ryder went ahead and jumped on the Netflix train. 

Ryder and David Harbour (The Newsroom) are set to star in a still-untitled supernatural drama set in Long Island in 1980, written and directed by Matt and Ross Duffer, the writer/producer duo behind another supernatural small-town thriller, Wayward Pines

The eight-episode series, previously titled Montauk, focuses on the disappearance of a young boy and the supernatural forces and “top-secret government experiments” at work in the Long Island town of Montauk. Ryder plays the boy’s mother, Joyce, and this series marks the first time she’ll lead a TV show. (She guest-starred in two episodes of Drunk History, and we’ll gladly take more of that, too.) 

Get it, Winona. Take over.
