You can now mark your calendars for Kate Winslet‘s HBO homecoming.

The premium cabler has announced that the Mildred Pierce star’s new limited series, Mare of Easttown, will premiere Sunday, April 18, at 10/9c.

Created by Brad Ingelsby (The Way Back), the seven-episode drama centers on Winslet’s Mare Sheehan, “a small-town Pennsylvania detective who investigates a local murder as life crumbles around her.” HBO describes the series as “an exploration into the dark side of a close community, and an authentic examination of how family and past tragedies can define our present.”
