Netflix orders new horror series The Order
Not everyone can be into comedies and soppy dramas, if you like your TV with a bit more gore and scream appeal, Netflix has a new horror series in the pipeline.
Netflix has ordered a new horror series to join its rank of Original Productions. It’s called the Order and will centre around Jack Morton.
Jack is a college freshman, the equivalent of being in first year at University, and has joined a fabled secret society. As you probably guessed from the name of the show, the society is named, The Order.
Upon joining the group, Jack is thrust into a world of magic, monsters and intrigue. Sounds just like any other coming-of-age-fantasy but there is a twist. The deeper and more involved Jack becomes in the magic, the darker and more sinister family secrets he begins to unfurl, culminating in an underground battle between werewolves and the magical dark arts.
There will be ten episodes in the first season, each an hour long. The creative masterminds behind the series are writer, Shelley Eriksen, creator Dennis Heaton and executive producers Chad Oakes, Mike Frislev, Dennis Heaton, David Von Ancken.
Jack Morton’s character will be be brought to life by actor, Jake Manley, who you may recognise from Heroes:Reborn or iZombie. Joining him on screen is Sarah Grey (Legends of Tomorrow), Matt Frewer (Altered Carbon, Watchmen, Orphan Black), Sam Trammell (True Blood), and Max Martini (Training Day, Revenge).
Is Netflix bigger than Disney?
The show is still in production so final details are a little but thin on the ground, but we do know it is being produced for Netflix by Nomadic Pictures, who brought us shows like Van Helsing and Ghost Wars on Syfy.
The Order, follows news of Netflix’s plan to bring Ian Somerhalder back to vampire fiction. The actor, known for playing Damon for eight seasons in Vampire diaries, is set to star in V-Wars. Netflix has ordered ten hour-long episodes of the vampire drama but the release date has not yet been announced.
So far it’s been a stellar year for Netflix. It has plans to increase its spending on Original Productions to just under £6 billion over the year and it seems to be paying off. It’s starting to have a bigger presence than Warner Bros and Fox, and pitted to become bigger than Disney.
If you can’t wait for the new arrival, you can fill your boots with the vast library of horror-focused series and films already available on the streaming service including Carrie, Paranormal Activity and the Death Note.
