Netflix has released the first look images for its first Netflix Arabic Original series from Egypt, titled Paranormal.
The series wrapped up shooting recently after a halt due to Covid-19 pandemic. The series has been directed by Amr Salama and Majid Al Ansari. Executive Producers are Amr Salama and Mohamed Hefzy.
The first look images of the series show characters Dr Refaat Ismail (Ahmed Amin), Maggie Mckillop (Razane Jammal) a Scottish scientist and Dr Refaat’s previous colleague, to whom he never confessed his love.
The series tackles Dr Refaat, a cynical Hematologist with a dark sense of humour, who goes through a “journey of doubt” as his world is turned upside down after his lifelong scientific convictions are questioned.
The plot commences in 1969, as Refaat Ismail enters his 40s, and begins to experience a series of paranormal activities. Throughout the season, Refaat is accompanied by his university colleague, Maggie, as they enter the paranormal world and try to save their loved ones from the immense danger that surrounds them.
The story is based on the best-selling thriller novel series with the same name Paranormal by late Ahmed Khaled Tawfik, that sold more than 15m copies.
Paranormal, which is slated to release in fall, has been filmed in Egypt, reflecting Netflix’s commitment to creating authentic Egyptian content.
