Netflix Picks Up Supernatural Teen Series | TV News


With Disney pulling their films from Netflix’s virtual shelves, the online streaming service is employing other ways to entertain the young’uns. This time catering for teenagers (who tend to enjoy Disney pics a great deal anyway), Netflix have picked up a new British supernatural series.


So far, that’s as much information as we’ve got. An untitled series, with supernatural themes, aimed at teenagers. It’s not much, and it’s certainly not original, but it somehow very Netflix-esque already. Who knows, maybe it’ll go as much to follow recent tradition and get cancelled after one season. I’m sure those teen Sense8 fans who infect every Netflix comment space will turn to find pleasure in this project in their time of need.


We do know that the series is written by Hania Elkington and Simon Duric, and produced by New Pictures, under Charlie Pattinson, Elaine Pyke, and Willow Grylls, each of whom do indeed seem like they’ve come out of an apocalyptic teen novel themselves. An eight episode series, Farren Blackburn is to direct six of the installments.


While the project doesn’t seem something of extreme interest and originality, it will likely do well. Netflix have been pushing for more young adult series, and after the success of 13 Reasons Why, it’s clear they have the demographic to deliver. Perhaps the final product will merge the likes of Stranger Things and 13 Reasons Why to create the ultimate teen obsession. Let’s just hope this doesn’t turn out like Twilight.
