Netflix has released the first look images of the highly-anticipated series “Paranormal,” the first Netflix Arabic Original from Egypt. The first look images of the series show Dr Refaat Ismail (Ahmed Amin) undergoing a series of paranormal incidents. They also display Maggie Mckillop (Razane Jammal), a Scottish scientist and Dr. Refaat’s previous colleague, to whom he never confessed his love.
The series features Dr Refaat, a cynical hematologist with a dark sense of humor, who goes through a “journey of doubt” as his world is turned upside down after his lifelong scientific convictions are questioned. The story takes place in 1969, when Refaat Ismail begins to experience a series of paranormal activities. Throughout the season, Refaat is accompanied by his university colleague, Maggie, as they enter the paranormal world and try to save their loved ones from the immense danger that surrounds them. The story is based on the best-selling thriller novel series with the same name “Paranormal” by late Ahmed Khaled Tawfik, which sold more than 15 million copies.
Paranormal, which is slated for the fall 2020, reflects Netflix’s commitment to creating authentic Egyptian content for global audiences.
