The Night Jar is an upcoming Netflix series developed by Chernin Entertainment Studios. Peter Chernin runs the studio, and it is behind one of Netflix’s shows, Far Street, which was released last year. The upcoming show will be an adaptation of the novel of the same name by Deborah Hewitt. Described as a contemporary novel that tells the story of the magical world hidden in plain sight, here is everything we know about the upcoming show.
The Nightjar Season 1 Release Date: When will it be out?
Netflix is yet to update when the Night Jar series is released. The series announcement came early this year, and from what was announced, the series is still in active development. No cast has been attached to the series, and at the moment, we do not know the series’ writer. Either the series writing has already started, or Netflix is still looking for the perfect writer. A possible release date is in 2023.
The Nightjar Season 1 Plot: What is it all about?
The series plot follows Alice Wyndham, a woman who has extraordinary powers. She has been seeing the vision of birds for the longest time without understanding what they mean. Soon enough, it is revealed that Alice might be an Aviarist, and she is capable of seeing Nightjars, magical birds that are in charge of guarding human souls. Misfortunes soon start streaming in Alice’s life, and the first one to be affected is her best friend, who gets hit by a car. Alice is the only one who can save her, and he uses Crowley’s help, who takes her to the Rookery, where magic is honed. It is not as easy as she thought, as authorities are determined to stop her from mastering her powers. But is Crowley there to help or take her down?
The Nightjar Season 1 Cast: Who will appear?
