Netflix makes room for another sci-fi thriller this September.
Another one guys, sorry!
We know, we know, there’s enough to watch as it is, but yet again Netflix has wheeled out another show to capture curiosity.
The streaming service really are cementing themselves as one of the best places to watch TV right now. There are some incredible series on there, from Stranger Things to Mindhunter, but of course, there are some pretty bad ones too. However, this should still be something to admire. Netflix is always willing to take risks; rather than narrowing its focus on the shows which have a proven track record, they release more and more new content than ever before to search for the next big thing.
Sure, not all of them stick – Another Life and others were sadly considered duds – but they continue to strive for new shows to satisfy subscribers. With new stuff coming in every week, let’s shine a light on The I-Land.
The I-Land: Natalie Martinez as Chase
This new mini-series was released on Netflix on Thursday, September 12th 2019, with all seven episodes being made available simultaneously.
It’s an American science fiction thriller and was created by Anthony Salter, executive produced by Neil LaBute, Chad Oakes and Mike Frislev. The series centres upon a group of ten who wake up on an island with no memory of who they are. Immediately, they are faced with the task of escape, but actually, the world is nothing as we expect it to be…
Anthony’s mysterious chiller is sure to earn fans as more flock to see it, and actually, it boasts a pretty terrific cast to help draw people in. The ensemble helps to keep us invested in this terrain of traps and torment, with the character of Chase proving to be a quick stand-out.
She’s played by 35-year-old American actress and model Natalie Martinez. Ring any bells? Perhaps it will in a moment…
