Netflix announced that it would adopt the Boom comic into a series, Something is killing the Children. The comic book was initially released with only five limited series, but it blew up insanely and they had to keep the comic going. It has received several awards, the most recent being its nomination to the Eisner Awards in 2020.
Trevor Macy (The Midnight Club) and Mike Flanagan (First Kill), known for working in several horror shows, including The Mirror, will co-write and executively produce the series. Here is everything we know about the upcoming Netflix series.
Something is Killing the Children Season 1 Release Date: When will it premiere?
According to Hollywood Reporter, the series pilot episode is already in motion, which is something to look forward to. It is still early as the writing only started, like two months ago, and therefore it will be a long before we are sure of the series release date. Considering there is also post-production in the series filming schedule, a perfect release date is the summer of 2023.
Something is Killing the Children Season 1 Plot: What will be the story?
The series plot is based on a horror comic; therefore, it will follow the same story, maybe slightly edited. When Children from Archer Peak mysteriously disappear one after the other, everybody starts to get alarmed. Most of the lost children do not return, but the ones that do are no better. They have horrible stories perfect enough to give grown men nightmares.
The kids relive their experiences of seeing terrible creatures in the shadows, which leaves the community hopeless. However, when a strange woman suddenly appears in the town, they believe there might be hope. The stranger opines that the children are telling the truth as she can also see what the children see. Erica Slaughter, the monster slayer, is about to be the children’s hero.
Something is Killing the Children Season 1 Cast: Who will be in?
Apart from the series synopsis and plot, Netflix has yet to give an update on the cast featured in the What is killing the Children show. We know that Trevor Macy will be producing the horror series in collaboration with Mike Flanagan.
The two are also expected to execute the show; therefore, a long task lies ahead of them. Flannigan’s wife, Kate Siegel, starred in the Hill House series, and she may also feature in this one alongside some of the Hill; House casts, like Henry Thomas or Victoria Pedretti. Since Midnight Mass and The Midnight Club, series that Flannigan and Macy are working on, have some cast members from the Hill house, this new series might follow the same trend.
Something is Killing the Children Season 1 Trailer: When can we watch it?
The series is still in its early development; therefore, there is no news of the first season trailer or when it will be released. It might take a while before the show’s first season is released, and we bet it may be bout in 2023.
However, Netflix has n array of series you can watch before the show’s premiere. One of the top ten shows on its catalog is The Empress series, an 1894 romance period drama that perfectly portrays the dynamism in leadership.
