Well, here we go again with another fantasy horror adventure series, with plenty of CGI monsters, quirky young characters, and secret horrific experiments that turn people into creatures. Here’s what we know so far about this upcoming show.
Netflix series The Imperfects release date
The Imperfects will arrive on Netflix globally on September 8th, 2022.
How many episodes will The Imperfects have?
The first season looks set to have 10 episodes.
The Imperfects premise
Three twentysomethings have been experimented on, using gene therapy, and the effects have been monstrous. Transformed into a Succubus, a Banshee, and a Chupacabra, they are seeking the people responsible for their situation in the hope of finding a cure and getting revenge.
Our opinion of the premise
The premise here seems to be taking a lead from shows such as Stranger Things and Being Human, and offering a mix of sci-fi, horror, and comedy. Perhaps this is an attempt to capture some of the lightning in the bottle that other fantasy shows have managed to attain for Netflix, but the very specific nature of the monsters that our team become seems a little too on the nose, and it feels that this show will really need to work hard to get this particular series off the ground.
