Based on the below trailer, the oft-smirking Lizzie is enjoying her newfound notoriety, remaining very much in control of ol' Fall River, Mass. Co-stars include Lizzie Borden Took An Axe returnee Clea DuVal as Lizzie's sister, Emma, and Jonathan Banks, aka Breaking Bad's Mike Ehrmantraut, as an "underworld kingpin."

This new series confirms Lizzie Borden is still having A Moment, after the hit movie and Cherie Priest's Lovecraftian spin on the story in last year's Maplecroft, named for the home Lizzie bought with her ill-gotten inheritance.
