'The I-Land': Release date, plot, cast, trailer and everything you need to know about Netflix's upcoming sci-fi thriller

In August 2019, Netflix released its first teaser trailer for 'The I-Land'. The teaser's first half parodies the announcement promo released for Fyre Festival, the brainchild of Ja Rule and Billy McFarland that promised a "luxury music festival", only to end up a disaster. 'The I-Land' is a science-fiction thriller and the miniseries will consist of seven episodes.

Release Date

'The I-Land' will land on Netflix on September 12, 2019.


'The I-Land' follows a group of 10 people who wake with no memory of their past or how they got to the seemingly paradise island. The group must find their way back home while tackling the "island’s extreme psychological and physical challenges".

The trailer ominously suggests, that once the people arrive at the "exclusive, captivating" island, they will "never leave" and implies that each person of the group has been invited to this "immersive experience" for a reason.
