3% is a Brazilian dystopian Netflix original thriller that was developed from a 2009 independent pilot. This is Netflix’s first original Brazilian production and the second series produced in Latin America.
The show is set in a future where people are given a chance to go to the “better side” of a world that is divided between progress and wealth in the “Offshore,” and the devastation and poverty in the “Inland.” However, only 3% of the candidates chosen for this chance can make it to the Offshore. Candidates are forced to go through a series of tests that measure their intelligence, emotions and physical abilities. These tests help decide who is worthy to go live their lives; however, on the Offshore.
3%’s first season was released on Netflix Nov. 25, 2016. Each episode will have viewers shocked and interested as to who may enter the Offshore. Netflix has announced that there will be a second season, however, there has yet to be a set date as to when it will be released.
Between is a Canadian sci-fi Netflix original that was released on May 21, 2015. The series is co-produced by City and Netflix, which distributes outside of Canada as a Netflix original.
The series is about a pregnant teenager, Wiley Day (Jennette McCurdy), who is a daughter of a minister living in a small town known as Pretty Lake. Life is normally simple in Pretty Lake until an outbreak of a strange disease causes the death of everybody over the age of 21, leaving the small town with only children and a few young adults. Once the disease was announced to the world, the town was then set in a quarantine to keep infected people in and healthy people out. Without proper adult supervision, the town of Pretty Lake becomes nothing but a town of chaos.
Between is quite interesting and can have viewers searching for answers. There are only two seasons available to watch on Netflix, and there has not been an announcement as to whether or not there will be a third season.
