'Endlings': Release date, plot, cast, trailer and all you need to know about the sci-fi thriller
The show is basically 'Stranger Things' meets 'Narnia', covered with some heavy emotions of 'ET', all packed together to give viewers a unique one of a kind visual adventure
After opening to rave reviews on CBS, the Canadian science fiction series 'Endlings' is gearing up to arrive to the streaming network Hulu this week. And that's exciting because the show is basically 'Stranger Things' meets 'Narnia', covered with some heavy emotions of 'ET' all packed together to give viewers a unique one of a kind visual adventure. Here's all you need to know about it!
'Endlings' premiered in Canada on January 5, 2020, on the CBC Television network. Arriving to the US, the show will premiere on the streaming service Hulu.
According to the official synopsis of the show, 20 years into the future, “Along the way, four discarded teens discover that, "Endling' doesn’t have to mean the end; it can also mean a new beginning.” The premise of the story reveals a journey of four young children living with their foster father, Leopold, on a farm. The story kicks off when the kids, along with their friendly elephant Tuko, discover an extraterrestrial being on the property after an alien spaceship crashes, and thus they are drawn into the enthralling adventure of helping the alien in its mission to save endangered intergalactic species.
'Endlings' comes from Emmy award-winning executive producer and director J J Johnson - the man behind 'Odd Squad'. The series is produced by Sinking Ship Entertainment and in partnership with CBC and Hulu.
The cast has Kamaia Fairburn, Edison Grant, Michela Luci, and Cale Thomas Ferrin as the four little leads in the form of Julia, Johnny, Tabby, and Finn. Neil Crone plays Leopold, the kids' foster father, and Oyin Oladejo joins as Abiona Maina - Tuko's caretaker.
The official trailer for 'Endlings' promises a lot and thrills even more. With a background score eerily similar to that of 'Stranger Things' we see the kids dive into the lot's action right at the start. As the kids go about figuring out just what their new alien friend wants and does, fascinating creatures of the extraterrestrial kind pop up on the screen with neon flashes of lights taking the front seat.
