This holiday season, Netflix is inviting you to enter the new supernatural and sexy world of Tidelands. The highly-anticipated, eight-part series, which will also be the first Australian Netflix original series, is produced by Emmy and BAFTA award-winning Australian production company, Hoodlum, who unveiled the first trailer today. At first glance, it appears to be like a mash-up of Siren and Bloodline, so if either of those very different shows does anything for you, then this one is worth a watch.
Tidelands follows Cal McTeer, played by Charlotte Best (Home & Away, Puberty Blues), a young woman who returns home to the small fishing village of Orphelin Bay after ten years in juvenile detention then jail. As the synopsis continues, “when the body of a local fisherman washes ashore, the town’s clandestine relationship with drug smuggling is suddenly on public display. Cal must uncover the town’s well-hidden secrets, while investigating a commune of outcasts who live in a hidden pocket of the bay – a group of beautiful and dangerous half-Siren / half-human Tidelanders.” Elsa Pataky (Fast and the Furious) stars as the mysterious and alluring Adrielle Cuthbert, the leader of the Tidelanders who will go to any length to protect her tribe of people.
Tidelands will launch globally on Netflix December 14, 2018. Check out the first trailer for Netflix’s Tidelands below, and put the new Netflix series on your watch list today:
