Amazon Prime Video’s first-ever YA thriller The Wilds premieres globally on Friday, December 11. Also stars veteran Aussie actress Rachel Griffiths.
Get ready for this brand new Amazon Original Series, The Wilds. This new series will feature ten episodes that will exclusively premiere on Amazon Prime Video on December 11th. In addition, the first episode will also be available to all viewers — for a limited time only — on Amazon Prime Vide Youtube handle from 7PM AEDT of the same day.
What is The Wilds about?
Describes as being “part survival drama, part dystopic slumber party,” The Wilds tells the story of a group of teen girls from different backgrounds who need to fight for their survival after their plane crashes on a deserted island.
The remaining survivors clash and bond as they learn more about each other, the secrets they keep, and the traumas they’ve all endured. Of course, there’s one major twist to this story — these girls did not end up on this island by accident.
Who stars in The Wilds?
The Wilds stars veteran Australian actress Rachel Griffiths, alongside a mix of familiar and fresh faces that include Sophia Ali, Shannon Berry, Jenna Clause, Reign Edwards, Mia Healey, Heelena Howard, Erana James, Sarah Pidgeon, David Sullivan, and Troy Winbush.
Is The Wilds any good?
All signs lead to a big yes. Amazon Prime Video has a fantastic record of original series that are not only highly acclaimed by viewers and critics alike but have also garnered numerous awards from prestigious award-giving bodies.
Don’t let the dystopian YA tag hinder you though because Prime really backs up their original productions well — not to mention, how they’ve done so well with another dystopian original series, The Man In the High Castle.
