The Order Netflix TV Series Story
The Order has some familiar supernatural elements, but its take on a secret society on a college campus combined with the threat of werewolves gives the show its own special flavor. Here’s the official synopsis from Netflix:
College freshman Jack Morton joins a fabled secret society, The Order, where he is thrust into a world of magic, monsters and intrigue. As Jack goes deeper, he uncovers dark family secrets and an underground battle between werewolves and the magical dark arts. The Order is a magical and terrifying journey to uncover our true selves…and the monsters that hide within.

Jake Manley of Heroes Reborn will star in The Order as Jack Morton, through whose eyes viewers will learn about the secret magical organization hidden at Belgrave University. In the trailer, we also spotted Sarah Grey, known for her role as Stargirl in Legends of Tomorrow, who in the process of giving Jack the campus tour as a student named Alyssa, uncovers his interest in the Hermetic Order of the Blue Rose and as his mentor warns him about the dangers of misunderstanding the cost of using magic.
The Order will also feature genre television fixture Matt Frewer of Orphan Black, True Blood shapeshifter Sam Trammell, and Max Martini of Revenge as a character named Edward Coventry, who is apparently the Grand Magus of the Hermetic Order.
