Watch: New trailer for Netflix’s ‘The Woman in the House Across the Street from the Girl in the Window’

Given the over-the-top nature of the title, we're guessing this is a series that comes with a self-aware wink.

The new trailer is here for Netflix’s ridiculously long-titled thriller parody, The Woman in the House Across the Street from the Girl in the Window, which you can see above.

Similar to the initial teaser we got for the series hitting the streaming service later this month, it features a wine-guzzling main character, Kristen Bell’s Anna, who is convinced that she’s witnessed a murder in the house across the street from her.

We’re getting a number of other scenes of the amateur sleuth that really do make it seem like a genuine thriller at times, such as Anna confronting a gossipy neighbor, darkened scenes showing her sneaking into places she probably shouldn’t be, and people succumbing to violent fates, like one person falling out of a lighthouse.

Most likely, however, given the over-the-top nature of both the title and the absurd volumes of alcohol the protagonist consumes — and high number of casserole dishes she destroys — we’re guessing this is a series that comes with a self-aware wink.

That’s without mentioning the overabundance of thriller story tropes, such as a protagonist believing that she’s witnessed a murder after viewing her neighbor’s activities through a window, á la Rear Window and The Woman in the Window, which cooks up a recipe for what’s sure to be a fun nod to movies and shows in this vein.

The Woman in the House Across the Street from the Girl in the Window comes to Netflix Jan. 28.
