Viewers are calling the new mystery thriller the ‘best series’ on Netflix ‘hands down’

Netflix has a pretty good reputation for bringing us shows that keep us on the edge of our seats, and its latest offering is no exception.

The show follows an immigrant steamship, the Kerberos, as she crosses the Atlantic from London to New York, haunted by rumors of what happened to another missing ship, the Prometheus.

While it is presumed to have sunk, it quickly becomes apparent that this was not the case when the Kerebos discovers the Prometheus missing mid-voyage.

It’s a ghost ship in every sense of the word, leaving passengers scratching their heads over what exactly happened to its passengers and crew on the open sea.

The mystery only deepens from this point on, and it really is an exciting portrait of not just life at the time, divided into classes, but how people will deal with each other when faced with danger on the open sea.

The official synopsis for the show reads: “1899. A migrant steamship heads west to leave the old continent. The passengers, a mix of European origins, united by their hopes and dreams for the new century and their future abroad. .

“But their journey takes an unexpected turn when they discover another migrant ship adrift in the open sea. What they will find on board will turn their passage to the promised land into a horrible nightmare.
