First Details on Tidelands – Netflix’s New Original Australian Series

Netflix has a new original series on the way titled “Tidelands, and it’s the streaming giant’s first for Australian audiences.  The supernatural crime drama follows a former criminal who returns home to the sleepy fishing town of Orphelin Bay.

Per Mamma Mia, the story begins when the body of a local washes ashore, sparking a chain of events that forces our lead character to realize the quiet villagers of her hometown aren’t villagers at all. They’re monsters that call themselves “Tidelanders.” The creatures are described as being half-human and half-siren.

The series is set to begin production among the murky waters of Queensland in 2018 with co-creator and co-executive producer Tracey Robertson explaining the northern state is perfectly suited to match the series’ mood. “The primeval landscapes of Queensland are a perfect setting to tell the story of betrayal, small town secrets, [and] ancient mythology,” she said in a press release.

Here’s the announcement video from Netflix’s Facebook page:
