Netflix shared the official trailer for Katla, which is an Icelandic mystery-drama series coming in June 2021.
Netflix’s new original series Katla excited the fans once again, this time with its official trailer. The mysterious drama series is about the eruption of a supernatural volcano called Katla, which brings about some unexpected consequences. The peace of the small town Vik is disturbed by the eruption, as it makes some prehistoric items emerge into the surface of Earth.
Katla is an Icelandic series, which is a huge plus for some fans. Iceland is not necessarily a big country. However, it has many critically acclaimed productions. Moreover, when we look at the cast and crew of the series, we understand that they can pull off a great job given their ample experience.
What is the synopsis of Katla?
As we mentioned earlier, Katla is about the story of Vik, a small town in Iceland. A volcano named Katla erupts, and this disturbs the tranquility of Vik. Not only that, but the eruption also brings up many items from the pre-historic times. Unfortunately, the items are not natural, and they cause some catastrophic events. The residents of Vik try to stay alive and evacuate the town while trying to figure out what the hell is happening.
“The catastrophic eruption of the subglacial volcano Katla turns a nearby community’s world upside down as mysteries begin to emerge from the ice,” says Netflix says about its new Icelandic mystery drama. Here’s a longer description of Katla.
“One year after the violent eruption of the subglacial volcano Katla, the peace and tranquility in the small town of Vik have been dramatically disturbed. As people evacuate the area, mysterious elements, that have been deeply frozen into the glacier from prehistoric times, start to emerge from the melting ice and causes consequences no one could ever foresee.”
Here’s the official teaser that Netflix shared earlier.
