Netflix has never left its fans disappointed, and it always manages to bring something exciting, thrilling, and eye-grabbing for its audience. This time, it is back with a thriller series titled 'In From The Cold' which has also impressed fans.
'In From the Cold' revolves around a single mother who plays muti-characters in the series. Jenny Franklin (Margarita Levieva), is a single mother who gave up on her job as a spy. Jenny was a Russian spy named Anya (Stasya Miloslavskaya) in her earlier life. Everything is good until Jenny goes to Madrid with her daughter Becca (Lydia Fleming) and gets kidnapped by Chauncey (Cillian O'Sullivan). The latter identifies her as Anya, the Russian spy, and forces her to work with him for sorting out every ongoing issue. Although Jenny is not ready to work and step back again into her past, she is threatened that her daughter could be not harmed.

While Jenny starts preparing herself to begin working as a spy again like she used to, she totally forgets about her personal life and daughter which results in her daughter getting trapped into something more than worse. Jenny, along with Chauncey and Chris (Charles Brica), start to work and catch the bad guys. Jenny is busy with the work unknown to the fact that Chauncey was doing it all for covering up for his and his fiance's mistake that got him fired from the CIA. Jenny's ability of body-morphing gives a different twist to the series.
Although the series is very interesting and thrilling, bringing the scenes from 20 years back into the ongoing scenario made it a little confusing and distracting. However, the scenes were pretty much relatable to what Jenny was facing in the present. The series is creatively written by Adam Glass and perfectly directed by Ami Canaan Mann and Birgitte Stærmose, making it a perfect watch for the viewers who love to binge on thriller movies.
The best part of the series is the brave and powerful heroic ladies fighting against the bad guys and overcoming obstacles together. Everyone is thinking that they are fighting for their country but it was Gideon who was behind everything, planning to conquer the country.
