Netflix's Plague Series 'Between' Will Be Their First That You Cannot Binge Watch

We all know Netflix is killing it with the original programming. I also know, from Facebook and Twitter, that everyone binge watches every series and then talks about them endlessly. This triggers my Asshole Stubborn Idiocy, which means I’m still only 4 (or is it 5?) episodes into Daredevil and still haven’t even begun Orange Is the New Black season 2. Maybe a series that no one can binge at first will be the one I stick with longer.

It will probably help that this series revolves around a town where a mysterious plague wipes out every citizen aged 22 or older. I’m a sucker for plagues and survival stories! Alas, since I am 22 or older, the only person I recognize in the trailer is Jennette McCurdy from iCarly, because of reasons.

Here’s the official synopsis:

BETWEEN is the story of a town under siege from a mysterious disease that has wiped out everybody except those 21 years old and under. The series explores the power vacuum that results when a government has quarantined a 10-mile diameter area and left the inhabitants to fend for themselves. An original survivalist thriller series, BETWEEN was created by award-winning writer/director Michael McGowan (Still Mine, One Week, Saint Ralph) and stars Jennette McCurdy (iCarly, Sam & Cat). The series is executive produced by McGowan, Don Carmody, David Cormican, and Naveen Prasad.

Between will premiere on Netflix Thursday, May 21st at 8:30 p.m. PT and will released weekly after that on the same day and at the same time. There will be 6 episodes of the series.
