Sometimes, when Netflix releases a “date announcement,” it’s little more than a text on a screen. And sometimes, it’s a proper teaser that gives us a true taste of what’s in store for the upcoming season.
The latter is the case when it comes to the below teaser for “3%” Season 2, which we now know will premiere on April 27. What we don’t know is what comes next for Michele (Bianca Camparato) and the others, as the world of the gritty sci-fi drama looks like it’s about to get a whole lot bigger, even as the danger grows.
“3%,” the first original Netflix series from Brazil, was an unexpected pleasure when it premiered in November 2016. In classic dystopian fashion, the show, set in the not-too-distant future, depicted a world where 97 percent of the population lives in squalor, while a select few are able to move to the paradise known as the Offshore… provided they survive a brutal process designed to select only the best of the best. The drama that ensued was an international hit that kept us guessing all season long.
“3%” was created by Pedro Aguilera, with directors including the Oscar-nominated cinematographer of “City of God,” César Charlone. The show stars Bianca Comparato, João Miguel, Michel Gomes, Rodolfo Valente, Rafael Lozano, Vaneza Oliveira, Viviane Porto, Celso Frateschi, Mel Fronckowiak, Sérgio Mamberti, and Zezé Motta.
Get hyped for the show’s return in April, and check out the trailer, which includes our first glimpse of the Offshore, below.
