Netflix has a knack for scaring us with its apocalyptic and dystopian productions. If you love science fiction and want to spend your hot summer days watching a mysterious drama, a gift awaits you.
In fact, the streaming platform is preparing to broadcast the first season of Katla, an original series that takes place in a small isolated town in Iceland after a volcanic eruption.
This event will be at the origin of supernatural phenomena and will confront the inhabitants with an insoluble enigma. If you like this type of series, you will soon be able to watch the first season of this first Icelandic original series on the streaming platform.
Katla Season 1: Coming Soon on Netflix!
Katla is the name of an Icelandic volcano whose eruption will be the origin of more than strange phenomena. During the sudden entry of this active volcano, many people disappeared. But a year later, some of them will suddenly reappear, their bodies covered in ash but unharmed.
The puzzle remains unsolved because they do not remember where they were or the reason for their disappearance during this time. But one thing is certain, the mysterious reappearance of these people, who literally seem to be reborn from their ashes, will turn the daily life of the small society upside down. What dark force is behind the return of these people?
Katla Season 1 premieres on Netflix on June 17. However, we still do not know how many episodes of season 1 will get underway.
Is the cast of the series up to the task?
If you liked the movie Everest, you will surely love Katla, as Katla was created by Baltasar Kormákur, the director of the hit American-Icelandic-British adventure film released in 2015.
And the latter has been well rounded for this series because Guðrún Ýr Eyfjörð, Íris Tanja Flygenring (Iceland is better), Aliette Opheim (Denser than water), Ingvar Sigurdsson (Falcons, Children), Þorsteinn Bachmann (Life in a fishbowl) and Sólveig Arnarsdóttir (Ingalo) are its stars.
What time will Katla season 1 be available on Netflix?
If the streaming platform stays true to its habits, Katla’s first season episodes will premiere on Netflix starting at 9:01 a.m. However, nothing has yet been formalized. Until then, let’s hope that if the Katla volcano (which is a real volcano in Iceland) erupts, no paranormal phenomena will occur.
