Following Dark, we could have the next big German Netflix series with Freud.
The trailer has arrived for the crime-thriller series, which is set in 1886 Vienna and follows a young Sigmund Freid (played by Robert Finster). During a period where his revolutionary theories are facing heavy opposition, he gains the attention of a psychic medium and police officer – and soon finds himself investigating a murder conspiracy that’s captured the nation.
It’s a pretty artsy trailer, which could entice or repel viewers depending on tastes. I’m digging what’s teased; moody, with a strong dose of gothic horror. We’ll see.
All 8 episodes of Freud will be hitting Netflix on March 23.
Official synopsis for Freud:
