Everyone’s favorite doctor is checking back in – sort of.

PEOPLE has an exclusive sneak peek at Hulu’s new original series Chance starring Hugh Laurie as a forensic neuropsychiatrist who gets caught up in the criminal underworld.

The former star of Fox’s House will take on a completely different role in the dark psychological thriller as Dr. Eldon Chance, a doctor who is sucked into a violent and dangerous cycle of mental illness, mistaken identity and police corruption. After making a bad decision about one of his patients, he finds himself targeted by the woman’s dangerous spouse, a volatile police detective.

The suspenseful trailer features Dr. Eldon Chance appearing on edge after getting in way over his head with his beautiful patient, Jaclyn Blackstone ( Gretchen Mol) and feeling the wrath from her husband Raymond Blackstone (Paul Adelstein).

Chance, based on the book by Kem Nunn, premieres Oct. 19 exclusively on Hulu.
