Are you in the cult?

The CW is hoping you are! Well, that you're into their new thriller Cult, which is about a show called Cult that has a rabid fan base that is basically a cult. Confused yet? The new series finally premiered tonight, marking the highly anticipated TV return of Matt Davis, who played fan favorite Alaric on The Vampire Diaries, as an investigative journalist who begins looking into the effect Cult has on its viewers after his brother goes missing.

Now that you've seen the premiere, we're curious to know what you thought of the new mind-bending series. Plus, we've got exclusive scoop from stars Robert Knepper and Alona Tal!

"This show is unlike anything that the CW has had, which is part of the appeal," Tal, who plays two characters on Cult (actress Marti and the character Marti plays on Cult: LAPD detective Kelly Collins), says of joining the series. "It's different, there's nothing on TV quite like it."

Though she was afraid to give away any spoilers, Tal teases, "Where we're gonna go is going to surprise a lot of people. It surprised us when we were reading it. We're definitely going to go deeper into who is behind all of these events that are taking place; why are they doing what they're doing. It goes back deeper and much bigger than anyone anticipated."

"We feel like we're kind of puppets in the show, as actors playing the actors who play the characters," Prison Break's Knepper, who plays the fictional charismatic cult leader Billy Grimm, adds. "And sometimes you go, 'Woah, I didn't know that was going to happen. I didn't know that was part of my character.'"
