The I-Land is a 7-episode sci-fi/action-adventure series that’s part of Netflix’s restrategized focus on content. The main cast includes headlining star Kate Bosworth, joined by the likes of Natalie Martinez, recently of The Crossing which was canceled last year after one season, and Alex Pettyfer of Magic Mike fame. Bosworth is also on board as producer.
The plot of The I-Land follows Bosworth’s KC, Martinez’s Chase, and Pettyfer’s Brody, who wake up on a treacherous island with no memory of who they are or how they got there, and they set off on a trek to try to get back home. They soon discover the world they find themselves in is not as it seems. Faced with the island’s extreme psychological and physical challenges, they must rise to their better selves — or die as their worst ones.

The I-Land Details
Neil Labute, who has distinguished himself as the showrunner for the often under-appreciated Van Helsing, will helm The I-Land and direct alongside Van Helsing actor, Jonathan Scarfe, an unsurprising coincidence considering Nomadic Pictures Entertainment produces both shows. Lucy Teitler (Mr. Robot) will also join the writing staff, and Labute will executive produce alongside Chad Oakes (Hell on Wheels) and Mike Frislev (Van Helsing).
Star Kate Bosworth is often remembered by genre fans as Lois Lane in 2006’s Superman Returns, but she’s perhaps best known from her breakout performance as Anne Marie Chadwick in Blue Crush. Of late, she has turned in a notable performance as Roxanna Whitman in Crackle’s The Art of More and did a post-apocalyptic turn in the 2018 horror film, The Domestics.
The I-Land joins Netflix’s continuously expanding slate of sci-fi properties and comic adaptations including recently released shows like The Order, Wu Assassins and Another Life, as well as upcoming offerings such as Warrior Nun, October Faction, Locke & Key and more.
