In the new six-episode mystery thriller series Anthracite, the 1994 mass suicide of a cult that used to operate near an anthracite mine in a small village in the Alps made headlines. Thirty years later, the murder of a woman who was killed according to the cult’s rituals wreaks havoc on the delicate balance that had been restored by the locals.

A recent arrival to these mountain parts is Jaro Gatsi (Clément Hatik, DogMan, Validé), a former motocross champion and repentant young offender who has come here to get his life back on track. He proves to be the perfect scapegoat, as he soon finds himself accused of the murder. Meanwhile, Ida (Noémie Schmidt, Inside, The Break), an eccentric, socially-awkward, and hyper-connected young geek, heads to the same Alpine village to search for her father, a journalist who was abducted while investigating the cult.

Determined to prove his innocence, Jaro gets some unexpected help from Ida, who in turn recruits him to help her find her father. The two soon realize that their involvement in these cult-related events is not by chance, and that the answers they are looking for are rooted in the secrets of their own past…

Anthracite, a Netflix Series, premieres globally on Wednesday, April 10, exclusively on Netflix. (You can set a reminder for it now.)

The limited series costars Camille Lou (Women at War, The Bonfire of Destiny) as Giovanna, Nicolas Godart (Les Rascals, Paris, 13th District) as Romeo, Raphaël Ferret (The Paris Murders, Candice Renoir) as Erwan Le Floch, Jean-Marc Barr (Bad Banks, Blood on the Docks) as Ida’s father, Solal Heilman, Stefano Cassetti (Into the Night, Germinal) as cult guru Caleb, Kad Merad (Baron noir, Oussekine) as Jaro’s Uncle Claude, and Vincent Rottiers (Thicker Than Water, Women at War).

Created and written by Fanny Robert (The Paris Murders) and Maxime Berthemy (UFOs), along with writers Mehdi Ouahab (Cherif) and Sophie Lebarbier (The Paris Murders), Anthracite is directed by Julius Berg (The Crimson Rivers, The Forest).
