Netflix’s first original Thai series gets November premiere

One year after streaming giant Netflix announced its first original Thai-language series, the teen supernatural drama has gotten a premiere date.

The Stranded, or Kweng in Thai, a sci-fi thriller that follows dozens of high school students trapped on a remote island following a tsunami, will become available Nov. 15 on the streaming platform.

In its trailer, the plot of the seven-episode series thickens with a number of strange events (with Thai touches) as everyone struggles to survive. It definitely has a Lord of the Flies vibe.

The movie is by horror flick filmmaker Sophon Sakdaphisit, who directed 2011’s Ladda Land, based on a haunted Chiang Mai house, and wrote the screenplay for 2004’s acclaimed Shutter, a film about spirit photography.

The first season stars some top Thai talents such as Sinjai “Nok” Plengpanich, Winai “Mek” Kraibutr and Sarunyu “Tua” Wongkrachang, while emerging teen actors include Chutavuth “March” Pattarakampol, Papangkorn “Beam” Lerkchaleampote, Chayanit “Pat” Chansangave and many more.
