Jeff Goldblum stars as Zeus in the mythological Netflix drama. Kaos. Here’s the trailer for the upcoming show.

Writer Charlie Covell’s most recent show was Truelove, a dark drama for Channel 4 with a terrific ensemble cast including Lindsay Duncan and Clarke Peters. Covell’s other dark comedy drama, The End Of The F***ing World, about a teenager who believes himself to be a psychopath, is now on Netflix and is well worth watching.

Her next show is Kaos, the synopsis reads as follows:

Zeus (Jeff Goldblum) has long enjoyed his status as King of The Gods. Until he wakes up and discovers a wrinkle on his forehead. Neurosis sets in, setting him off on a dangerous, paranoid path. Zeus becomes convinced his fall is coming – and starts to see signs of it everywhere. Zeus’ once reliable brother, Hades (David Thewlis), the God of the Underworld, is secretly losing his grip on his dark dominion. There is a backlog of dead waiting to be processed and they are growing restless.

Hera (Janet McTeer), Queen of the Gods, exercises dominion on Earth — and over Zeus — in her own unique way. But her power and freedom become threatened by Zeus’ growing paranoia, and she is forced to act, while Zeus’ rebellious son, Dionysus, (Nabhaan Rizwan), is out of control and on course for a cosmic collision with his father.

On Earth people are aching for change, however Poseidon (Cliff Curtis), God of Sea, Storms & Earthquakes (& Horses) is more concerned with the size of his super-yacht & where the next party is. The wellbeing of mere mortals is of little interest to him…

The cast also includes Killian Scott as Orpheus, Debi Mazar as Medusa, Nabhaan Rizwan as Dionysus. Aurora Perrineau as Riddy, Killian Scott as Orpheus, Misia Butler as Caneus and Leila Farzad as Ari.

Georgia Christou also wrote episodes of the show, with Georgi Banks-Davies and Runyararo Mapfumo directing.

Kaos will stream on Netflix in the summer, with an exact date to be confirmed.
