Details on Katla, the new Icelandic series from Netflix
Now let’s move on to the next details about this Icelandic series Katla on Netflix namely the cast members. The list includes Haraldur Ari Stefansson, who is reprising the role of Einar. Birgitta Birgisdottir will play the character of Rakel. Then we have Helga Braga Jonsdottir, who will play the role of Vigdis. Bjorn Ingi Hilmarsson will reprise the role of Leifur. Aldis Amah Hamilton will play the character of Eyja. Finally, we have Hlynur Atli Hardarson, who will play the role of Mikael. Now everyone must be wondering what the plot of the series will be. The focus will be on the volcano that exists in southern Iceland and on the inhabitants of a small town called Vik, located near this volcano.
The story takes place a year after the volcano erupted, and the whole village of Vik is now in trouble. Most of the people who lived here have left their homes to protect themselves from threats, but the community that remains essentially resides in a danger zone. There are only a handful of people left at the moment and their location can only be reached if one person crosses the Markarfljot River.
The story begins with the natural phenomenon of the melting of the ice surrounding the volcano. This is why the ancient elements that froze with the ice begin to emerge and now pose a new threat to the inhabitants of Vik. This series can be considered a post-apocalyptic series.
