Now, it looks like the wait for the series’ official trailer is almost over.
Back in 2018, fans heard the news that the American Satan spin-off series Paradise City was in the works. After receiving the first teaser on May 1, fans have been anxiously awaiting to hear when the show will finally premiere.
Since Paradise City‘s announcement, various details regarding the show have been released. Back in May, the first look into Randy Blythe‘s band in Paradise City was revealed. We also found out some behind-the-scenes info about the show’s name from Sumerian Records founder Ash Avildsen.
As well, Black Veil Brides‘ Andy Biersack, Asking Alexandria‘s Ben Bruce and James Cassells, Bella Thorne, BooBoo Stewart and late actor Cameron Boyce are all starring in the spin-off. In August, Biersack shared some exclusive details to Alternative Press about the fate of his character Johnny Faust in Paradise City.
“When we first started this whole thing,” he said. “I was several months into my sobriety and playing a character who was going down the other path where he was getting into the darkness and all that stuff. And so that was a really interesting twist. But then with [Paradise City], Johnny’s on the other side. He’s trying to make his life better. But all of the demons from his past are making it more difficult for him to do that. And so I’m very little like Johnny. Other than our faces are the same.”
Even though various details have been shared so far, a premiere date for Paradise City is still unknown. In fact, back in September, Paradise City offered an update on its status. Due to coronavirus and the unpredictable year that followed, the show was still looking for a network to air on.
“We know you’ve been waiting for news. a date. a streaming home. an official trailer. thank you for your patience. we are in the very final stages of finishing the deal and the season. covid has caused things to move much slower this year but we are happy to tell you the wait is truly almost over. I know this isn’t as good as watching a trailer with answers but certain things have been out of our hands. the wait will be worth it, that we can promise you. we love you guys and your continued support. we will show Hollywood how powerful rock & roll and the community that calls it home is in 2020.”

Then, at the beginning of November, Paradise City teased that the official trailer was right around the corner. Now, as promised, we finally know when the Paradise City trailer is arriving. On Tuesday, the series confirmed that we will finally see what’s in store for Johnny Faust and company on Dec. 10.
“‘your history is not your destiny’ it’ll be worth the wait. we love you and thank you for your patience. this has been the most intense undertaking of our lives and we are finally able to show you. see you in ten days for the official trailer reveal with all your questions answered.”

The new poster also offers another look at the main characters of Paradise City including Gretchen (Oliva Culpo) and Elias (Mark Boone Junior) who both appeared in American Satan. As well, fans got another glimpse of Thorne who is joining the Relentless as Lily Mayweather in the spinoff show.
In terms of the first season’s plot, there is still a lot to be known. It is confirmed that Biersack, Bruce and Stewart are reprising their American Satan roles. Sleeping With Sirens‘ Kellin Quinn and Juliet Simms are also expected to appear in the first season.
Biersack did reveal to Alternative Press that a lot of these characters’ storylines are not connected in the show. So, unfortunately, we may not be getting the Andy and Juliet screen time we’ve been hoping for in Paradise City.
“Our storylines don’t really cross at all in the show,” he said. “I think there’s one scene at the end where we end up in the same situation at some point. I don’t want to spoil anything. But our storylines are different. Her storyline and her band are this whole separate thing in the show that people don’t really know. This show is not just American Satan, too. It’s a whole different group of people that you’re learning about and following. And I know that Ben’s character had some scenes with Juliet’s band and members of Juliet’s band later.”
While we patiently wait 9 more days for the arrival of Paradise City‘s official trailer, the series’ teaser can be streamed below.
