If you are into Netflix Series like The 100, you will definitely like 3%.
I came across 3% after a binged watched “The 100” 2 years ago due to netflix’s algorithms. At the time, I had little interest in watching movies in which the audio was redubbed to english. After several years of watching netflix films while mixing in the studio, I decided to give it a try.
My first impression? It was slow.
But… the story line was interesting. There were subtle details in the story which caught my attention.
3% is a Brazilian dystopian thriller streaming television series created by Pedro Aguilera, starring João Miguel and Bianca Comparato. Developed from a 2009 independent pilot episode, it is the first Portuguese-language Netflix original series and the second non-English production, after the Spanish-language series Club de Cuervos.
The series is set in an unspecified future where 20-year-old individuals of the impoverished “Inland” have the single opportunity to complete “The Process” and advance to the affluence of the distant “Offshore” society. While most of the unsuccessful candidates are simply eliminated, some fail to survive, leading to only 3% of the candidates succeeding.
The first season, consisting of 8 episodes, became available on Netflix worldwide on November 25, 2016. In December 2016, Netflix renewed the series for a second season, which was released on April 27, 2018, consisting of 10 episodes. In June 2018, the series was renewed for a third season, consisting of 8 episodes, which was released on June 7, 2019. In August 2019, it was announced that the series had been renewed for a fourth and final season, which was released on August 14, 2020.
You should check it out. Interesting.
