Last January 2019, it was revealed that Netflix will broadcast its first Thai drama entitled The Stranded.
The series was released on November 15, 2019, exclusively via Netflix.
You may read Part 1 (I made a 3-part review since it was really well done!) of my review of the series.
The actors before a press con. Casting in a Netflix project is a biggie, so congratulations to all the Thai actors!
The Bangkok Post is reporting that details about the series is being kept secret. But we will soon find out!
Details surrounding were kept under tight seal by Netflix. The show’s premise centres on a group of teenagers left stranded on an island after a tsunami. Losing contact with the outside world, they have to work together to survive as strange incidents shrouded in myth and folktale continue to surface on the island. | Source |
