Roman Polanski’s controversial 1968 film adaptation of author Ira Levin’s Rosemary’s Baby with Mia Farrow in the lead, was originally four hours long.

It was eventually trimmed to the two hours and 16 minutes released in theaters, meaning much of Levin’s sprawling story had to be streamlined.

Now, NBC says it has a full retelling of Levin’s novel in its miniseries that covers two nights and four hours, allowing many of the smaller, yet still significant moments to finally see the light of day, reports BuzzFeed.

Zoe Saldana takes over the role of Rosemary, who grows increasingly convinced that her husband and new neighbors have sinister plans for her baby.

Patrick J. Adams and Jason Isaacs also star. Rosemary’s Baby starts on Sunday, May 11.
