Netflix recently released the first look at its upcoming series “The Innocents.”

Entertainment Weekly provided the following details on the show:

Who’s got a problem with young love? On the upcoming Netflix original series The Innocents, the answer to this question is: “Parents.” So, teenagers Harry (Percelle Ascott) and June (Sorcha Groundsell) run away from their repressive family lives to be together. But this journey of self-discovery might end up derailing their innocent dream, especially when they learn about secrets their parents kept from them.

The trailer doesn’t give much away about the plot, but it really looks like we’re going to dive into the lives of three or four different characters.

It also just has a lingering sense of doom and darkness hanging over it.

There isn’t a finalized release date yet, but I’m willing to bet plenty of fans will be hanging around to catch this one.

Netflix has done an incredible job lately of producing top content for its streaming service. I have a pretty solid belief that “The Innocents” could be something special. Television dramas are really starting to follow the trend of darkness, hopelessness and bleakness. I don’t know if that’s supposed to be some kind of social commentary, or if that’s simply what the fans like. Either way, it has worked out incredibly well for Netflix. Just take a look at “Bloodline” and “Ozarks.”

It looks like “The Innocents” might be the next one to join the group of great Netflix shows.
