Netflix Releases Trailer & Sets January Premiere Date For Monster Hunter Comic Book Adaptation ‘October Faction’
Netflix has released a trailer and set a January premiere date for Season 1 of ‘October Faction‘, Damian Kindler’s (‘Sleepy Hollow’, ‘Krypton’, ‘Sanctuary’) fun looking adaptation of Steve Niles/Damien Worm’s monster-hunting IDW comic book series.
‘October Faction’ follows globetrotting monster hunters Fred (J.C. MacKenzie – ‘Dark Angel’, ‘Vinyl’) and Deloris Allen (Tamara Taylor – ‘Bones’, ‘Altered Carbon’) who, after the death of Fred’s father, return to their hometown in New York with their children Geoff (Gabriel Darku – ‘Impulse’, ‘American Gods’) and Viv (Aurora Burghart – ‘Sex Education’). In their new small-town setting, the family must adjust and assimilate while Fred and Deloris try to hide their identities as members of a secret organization.
As the Fred and Deloris become reacquainted with their old hometown and the secrets buried there, Geoff and Viv are forced to integrate into a place they’re unaccustomed to. Geoff deals with the close-mindedness of a local bully and the more reserved Viv tries to make friends in high school.
This season dives into complex issues such as race, sexuality, warfare, class, and the divisions which pervade our modern society. Drawn across the backdrop of small-town America, these themes speak to the larger cultural climate of the modern viewer.
Wendy Crewson (‘The Vow’, ‘Room’), Megan Follows (‘Reign’, ‘Anne of Green Gables’) and Stephen McHattie (‘Watchmen’, ‘Maurice Richard’) also star.
October Faction is produced by High Park Entertainment in association with IDW Entertainment. IDW Entertainment is the worldwide distributor (excluding Canada) for the series.
‘October Faction‘ Season 1 premieres Thursday, 23rd January 2020 on Netflix UK and worldwide.
