Netflix has released the extended official trailer for Jinn, its first Middle East original series. The show follows a group of Arab high school students in present-day Amman, who unknowingly invite the forces of a vengeful Jinn in the form of a seemingly normal teenage boy during a school trip to the ancient city of Petra.

A thriller series, as the jinn get stronger and the lines between good and evil blur in the series and the group of friends don’t know who to trust.

Jinn's first series is made up of five 30 to 45-minute episodes, and is set to premiere on June 13. Filmed in Arabic, the series will be available in 26 languages.

The five-episode production is produced by Kabreet Productions and directed by Mir-Jean Bou Chaaya (Very Big Shot) and Amin Matalqa, and stars Salma Malhas, Hamzeh Okab, Sultan Alkhail and Aysha Shahaltough.

'Jinn' will be available to stream from June 13 at www.netflix.com/jinn
