Biohackers: New German thriller web series on Netflix

After Dark took the world by storm, Netflix has unveiled another German thriller titled, Biohackers.

The web series centers around Mia, a freshman who enrols in Freiburg University’s prestigious medical school. She discovers revolutionary biohacking-technology that is being experimented with at the university.

However, the real reason she shows interest in the tech is to get close to the reputed lecturer and bio-scientist Prof. Tanja Lorenz. Mia has some dark secrets which connect her to Tanja. The story weaves around a harmless first year student hell bent on destroying a famous personality owning to her brother’s mysterious death.

Christian Ditter, director and showrunner said:

What happens when normal people, like you and I, are confronted with things that are bigger than themselves? How far do you go to satisfy your desire for fame or even revenge? Where do we draw moral and ethical boundaries? What is synthetic biology, biohacking or bodyhacking anyway? And what happens when Jessica Schwarz and Luna Wedler compete as star professor and freshman? All these questions will finally be answered with the worldwide launch of Biohackers on Netflix.

Biohackers stars Luna Wedler, Jessica Schwarz, Adrian Julius Tillmann, Caro Cult, Thomas Prenn, Sebastian Jakob Doppelbauer, Benno Fürmann, Jing Xiang, among others.

Earlier slated for an April 2020 release, Biohackers was delayed due to a scene which would not have been appropriate for the audience during the time of a pandemic. The six episode web series is now set to premiere on Netflix on August 20.
