Cross, the upcoming TV adaptation of James Patterson's novel of the same name, has set a premiere date.

Prime Video announced during the Essence Fest in New Orleans on Saturday, July, 6, that all eight of the series' episodes will premiere on the platform on Nov. 14.

Cross, according to Prime Video, follows the titular character, who is described as "a detective and forensic psychologist, uniquely capable of digging into the psyches of killers and their victims, in order to identify — and ultimately capture — the murderers."

Patterson appeared on Dax Shepard's Armchair Expert podcast last month, when he opened up about how the series is one of his favorite TV adaptations of his books.

“That's the first one where I really can look at and go like, ‘Yep. It's edgier,’ " the famed author said. “It's more realistic about police work, [and] I really like the way that turned out.”

Cross will be available to stream on Prime Video on Nov. 14.
