Building on the success of the IDW comic book series written by Steve Niles, October Faction follows globetrotting monster hunters Fred and Deloris Allen who, after the death of Fred’s father, return to their hometown in upstate New York with their teenage children Geoff and Viv. As the family adjusts, Fred and Deloris must hide their identities as members of a secret organization, and our heroes quickly discover that their new small-town setting isn’t as idyllic as it seems.

Taylor is most notable for her role on the Fox crime drama Bones, appearing in every episode from season two to the series finale, while having most recently appeared in another Netflix adaptation, Altered Carbon. MacKenzie is well-known for his work on television, appearing in the short-lived Fox sci-fi actioner Dark Angel alongside Jessica Alba and HBO’s Vinyl alongside Bobby Canavale.

Damian Kindler serves as creator, showrunner, and executive producer for the 10-episode series. Directors include Director X (Superfly, Mister Tachyon), Kindler, Megan Follows (Reign, Anne of Green Gables), Mina Shum (Meditation Park, Ninth Floor), and David Frazee (Vikings, Orphan Black).

October Faction is produced by High Park Entertainment in association with IDW Entertainment. IDW Entertainment is the worldwide distributor (excluding Canada) for the series.
