The plot is pretty much a cross between Midnight Sky and The Handmaid’s Tale, as it’s set in the far distant future. The story revolves around a colony in space, where the colonists are desperate to find answers after they become infertile. When they send an astronaut back to earth, she’s tasked with determining whether procreation has become a universal problem. It doesn’t take long for her to cross paths with a young boy, who could change everything.
Cast members include Nora Arnezeder (Blake), Iain Glen (Gibson), Sarah-Sofie Boussnina (Narvik), Sope Dirisu (Tucker), Sebastian Roche (Blake’s Father) and Joel Basman (Paling).
Netflix’s official synopsis reads, “A colony in space sends an astronaut back to Earth to decide the fate of the planet’s remaining inhabitants after the colonists become infertile.”
Will The Colony remain in the number one spot for as long as Don’t Look Up? Only time will tell.
