A new supernatural TV series features a bisexual, polyamorous mermaid - and people are pretty excited about it.

Produced by Freeform, Siren follows the story of Ryn, played by Eline Powell, a dangerous and alluring mermaid who mysteriously appears in a small fishing village and starts making her mark.

In the extended trailer for the series, Ryn can be seen kissing marine biologist Maddie Bishop, played by Fola Evans-Akingbola, despite already being in a relationship with fellow marine biologist Ben Pownall, played by Alex Roe.

Oh, and she also casually throws a man through an open car window after he attempts to sexually assault her.

The series premiered this week with a two-hour special, and has become Freeform's most-watched premiere in two years.

Here's to diverse TV characters making a splash!
