Say you are you but you find out that there is another you from another world. He or she looks like you and sounds like you but, whoa, is also very, very different.

That’s Howard Silk’s (J. K. Simmons) plight in the new Starz series, Counterpart, as he comes to face to face with another Howard Silk, who has crossed over from another world and, well, the fun starts there. The exciting series also stars Olivia Williams (Manhattan), Harry Lloyd (The Theory of Everything), Nazanin Boniadi (Homeland), Sara Serraiocco (Salvo), Nicholas Pinnock (Captain America: The First Avenger) and Ulrich Thomsen (The Blacklist).

Counterpart, from creator Justin Marks, MRC, Gilbert Films and Anonymous Content, is set to premiere on Sunday, January 21 on Starz but the pay cabler announced on Thursday that an early sneak peek of the pilot episode will air after the third season finale of Outlander on December 10.

The network also released new key art for the series, which plays into the idea of two Howard Silks coming from two very different worlds.

Watch the new trailer for Counterpart below:

Counterpart will air a preview on December 10 at 9/8c and then premiere on January 21 at 8/7c on Starz.
