Netflix’s Russian series To the Lake centers on a group that risks their lives, loves (and humanity) in a brutal struggle to survive the end of civilization when a terrifying plague strikes. And today, none other than The Stand and The Shining author Stephen King is recommending the series over on Twitter.
Check out his tweets below.
Starring Viktoriya Isakova, Kirill Käro, Aleksandr Robak, the series is directed by Pavel Kostomarov from scripts written by Yana Vagner and Roman Kantor.
Based on Yana Vagner’s bestselling book, Vongozero, here’s what IMDb has to say about To The Lake: An unknown virus turns Moscow into a city of the dead. There is no electricity, money has lost all value and those who are still not infected, are desperately fighting for food and fuel. The main character, Sergei, lives outside the city with the woman he loves and her autistic son. It’s still safe there. In spite of that he rushes to Moscow to save his ex-wife and their son, although she hates Sergei. These people, who never believed they’d be under the same roof again, have to put the past behind them and set off on a long, dangerous journey north to find an isolated hunting lodge on a deserted island.
