“Scientists predicted what would happen – but it was too late.” That’s the sound of Netflix getting its dystopian sci-fi on for a new drama, IO.
Starring Margaret Qualley, Anthony Mackie, and Danny Huston, the film follows Sam, one of the last survivors on a post-cataclysmic Earth. A young scientist, she’s dedicated to finding a way for humans to adapt and survive, rather than abandon their world. But with the final shuttle scheduled to leave the planet for a distant colony, her determination to stay is rocked by the arrival of another survivor, Micah. She must decide whether to journey with him to join the rest of humanity and begin life anew, or stay to fight for Earth’s survival.
Directed by Jonathan Helpert (House of Time) and written by Clay Jeter and Will Basanta (Jess + Moss) and Charles Spano (Embers), IO premieres on Netflix on Friday 18th January. Here’s the trailer – or head this way for a guide to what’s coming soon on Netflix UK in January.
IO is available to watch online on Netflix UK, as part of a £7.99 monthly subscription.
