Following Netflix’s cancellation in 1899, Dark creators Baran bo Odar and Jantje Friese will next work on an adaptation of Something Is Killing the Children for the streaming service. When Dark was first made available on Netflix in 2017, it established Odar and Friese as a creative team with exceptional talent. After that program’s satisfying conclusion after three seasons, the team then produced 1899, a mystery and science-fiction show that attracted a fervent fan base but, according to Netflix, lacked the viewing numbers needed to justify a season 2. As Per THR, bo Odar and Friese announced their upcoming project at Netflix after the streaming service canceled 1899 in January.
The team’s next project is to adapt Something Is Killing The Children, a popular comic book by James Tynion IV and Werther Dell’edera released by Boom Studios. The new show will be written, directed, and produced by Bo Odar and Friese. It will follow a young woman who moves to a small town with kid-eating monsters and sets out to hunt them.
Something Is Killing the Children will appear to feature a significantly more active and confident hero, rallying other teenagers to her cause, in contrast to 1899, which featured multiple protagonists who gradually unraveled a more excellent mystery. Given that both Dark and 1899 occasionally featured shocking violence, they were both given the TV-MA rating, and it appears likely that the upcoming adaptation will follow this rating trend. Although a release date for Something Is Killing the Children on Netflix has not yet been announced, it is most likely a while off. Staying connected and watching the other two series can make you aware of the storyline the creators usually depict.
