There’s a new Netflix drama series and it will be premiering on May 21 at 11:30 p.m. EST.
“Between,” a science-fiction thriller, is the first Netflix series that will not be running the binge-watch format, meaning, the episodes will not be released all at once. It will be just like “regular” TV, where viewers will get to watch the episodes week after week.
According to Decider, Netflix decided to change “Between’s” release to fit with its audience outside of the United States who are more used to watching shows on a weekly basis.
“Netflix wants to give shows to its members as quickly as they can. Between is a series that will air on linear TV in Canada and then Netflix will be bringing it to the service the same day as Canada’s broadcast,” said a representative from the streaming site.
Starring Jennette McCurdy, Jesse Carere, Kyle Mac, Krystal Nausbaum and Brooke Palsson, “Between” is set in a quaint town called Pretty Lake, which has been affected by a plague. After the town is quarantined by the military and the people are trapped, panic ensues. But no one still knows anything about the disease. A teenager hacks online and discovers the truth — the victims are only affected if they are over 21 years old.
The premise of the series is geared towards young adults and will only run for six full-hour episodes. The show is created by Michael McGowan, who also directs the episodes along with Jon Cassar, who has done “24.”
