A marvel of French Gothic architecture, the Cathedral of Notre-Dame de Paris, whose construction took place between 1163 and 1345, has been an active place of worship and a highly-visited tourist attraction in Paris for centuries — until a fire there on April 15, 2019, caused extensive damage, forcing it to close until repairs are completed.

Next month Netflix launches its limited series Notre-Dame (La Nuit de Notre Dame), a six-part drama inspired by the accounts of French firefighters who worked tirelessly to put out the inferno. It also explores the impact of the fire on a diverse group of Parisians.

Notre-Dame, a Netflix Series, premieres globally on Wednesday, October 19, exclusively on Netflix. (You can set a reminder for it now.)

In Notre-Dame, the fire serves as the show’s backdrop and setting, as well as a metaphor for the stories told within the series. Set during the night that Notre-Dame burned, the drama revolves around the destinies of individuals who have their own fires to put out. As the Paris firefighters try to stop the flames from spreading in the Cathedral, the show also follows characters being put through the wringer — men and women who will have to fight each other, love each other, come across each other, hate each other, smile at or help each other — so that, in the end, they can have a chance to start all over again.

The lead cast includes Roschdy Zem (Madame Claude, Savages) as General Ducourt, Caroline Proust (Spiral, The Tunnel) as Veronique Varese, Megan Northam (The Passengers of the Night, Robust) as Alice, Simon Abkarian (Wonderland, Kaboul Kitchen) as Max, Alice Isaaz (The Gilded Cage, Smart Ass) as Elena, Marie Zabukovec (How to Be a Good Wife, Interrail) as Victoire, and Sandor Funtek (Suprême, Captain Marleau) as Antony Casemari.

Created, written, and directed by Hervé Hadmar (Wonderland, Witnesses), Notre-Dame is produced by Julien Madon (Ganglands, Earth and Blood) and Aimée Buidine (Brothers by Blood, The Bouncer).
