We're still a month away from the premiere of the live-action series adaptation of Stephen King's The Stand but now we have a fresh look at what to look forward to in December. The new promo once again introduces Mother Abagail and Randall Flagg in an epic battle between good and evil.

The teaser opens with a man riding a bicycle in an empty city looking for other people. Most of the footage have already appeared in the main trailer but we also get a new scene where Whoopi Goldberg's Mother Abagail reaches out to Frannie Goldsmith, telling her to find the older woman.

From there, we are welcomed to Boulder Free Zone where most of the survivors have been living in peace. However, their new life is set to be disrupted as it is revealed that Mother Abagail has to face off against the Dark Man.

Interestingly, Randall Flagg is considered a savior in New Vegas but there is something darker lurking within the mysterious man. Can the survivors win over evil this year?

The synopsis for The Stand reads as follows:

"Based on the best-selling novel by Stephen King, CBS All Access's The Stand stars Whoopi Goldberg as Mother Abagail, the figurehead of the Boulder Free Zone, and Alexander Skarsgård as Randall Flagg, the leader of the sinister New Vegas. The Stand also stars James Marsden, Odessa Young, Jovan Adepo, and many more. The limited event series will feature an all-new coda written by Stephen King."

The Stand will premiere on CBS All Access on December 17.
