A couple weeks ago, the Peacock streaming service unveiled a teaser trailer for their upcoming series Mrs. Davis, which is set to make its premiere on April 20th… and that teaser really didn’t show us anything from the show. Thankfully, a full trailer for Mrs. Davis has now arrived online, and this one actually gives us an idea of the what the show’s tone, characters, and story are going to be like.
