Netflix’s latest dive into the sci-fi genre is The I-Land, which stars Natalie Martinez (Under the Dome, Death Race, End of Watch, Self/less), Maria Conchita Alonso (The Running Man, Predator 2), Kate Bosworth (Superman Returns), and Alex Pettyfer (I Am Number Four, In Time). The series is helmed by Van Helsing series creator Neil LaBute.
*Fun fact: Sci-fi veteran actor Alonso also starred in one episode of the ’80s TV series Fantasy Island, which kind of makes her the connective tissue between island-based sci-fi magic of the past and the new take being launched on Netflix.
The series starts on Netflix on Sept. 12.
