Netflix unveils 3% Season 2 trailer
VOD News | On 12, Dec 2017
The offshore awaits in Season 2 of Netflix’s 3% – and a new trailer is already setting the mood for the show’s return.
Netflix’s first Brazilian original series, 3% is set in a dystopian future, where the world is divided into progress and devastation. The link between the two sides – Offshore and Inland – is a rigorous and painstaking system called The Process. Everyone in Inland has a chance to go through The Process to live a better life in Offshore. But only 3% make it through…
We praised the dark-hearted dystopia in our review of Season 1 for highlighting Netflix’s willingness to embrace a brave new world.
“Ten years ago, it would be extremely doubtful that a show like this, despite holding a broad appeal, would make itself over to UK screens with such accessibility. However, 3% sits proudly nestled between the likes of hit shows such as Narcos and the muscular Hollywood fare that has come before it,” we wrote.
“3% doesn’t reach the heights of profound detail that take place in shows such as Mr. Robot and its episodic structure (each episode focuses on one character) feels out of place in a world of grand, over-arching narratives. However, the show’s breezy pace, enjoyable performances (standouts: Olivera and Valente, who find complexities in their frosty characters) and well-used arrangement of Brazil’s political landscape make for a brief but entertaining diversion. When you’re done with the Netflix shows that have been hogging the limelight, watch this.”
Season 2 of 3% lands in 2018. Here’s the trailer:
