New Original Series from Netflix, Montauk, to Premiere in 2016
After hit series House of Cards, Orange is the New Black, and the most recent Bloodline, Netflix continues to tackle ambitious projects that will help the company expand its original content catalogue and attract a wider audience. Its next series, Montauk, is set to premiere in 2016.
The new drama series from Netflix will be set in 1980 Montauk, Long Island. The show will be about a young boy who vanishes into thin air. As friends, family, and local police search for answers and clues, they are drawn into an extraordinary mystery involving (wait for it…) top-secret government experiments, terrifying supernatural forces, and one very strange little girl. Sound promising, don’t you agree?
According to the streaming giant, Montauk will have eight one-hour long episodes and will be written and directed by Matt and Ross Duffer. The two brothers recently directed their first feature film, Hidden, starring Alexander Skarsgård, about a family in a fallout shelter, which arrives this year.
