sorry for the mistakes
Into the night
Those of the Moscow/Brussels flight, driven by the wave of an
unexpected success of a series that summarizes it all in six episodes
of about 35 ', are, to our delight, back. Of course, it is not easy to
repeat the exploit of the first season and of course the surprise
effect has completely vanished, because yes, we already know, that the
sun is deadly.
Jason George, the showrunner, still picks up ideas from The Old Axolotl
by Jacek Dukaj, already at the centre of the first series, while there
is a change of direction with the Belgian Nabil Ben Yadir and the
French Camille Delamarre who take the place of Inti Calfat and Dirk
It is not easy to repeat, I said, and George seems to know it well,
since he is looking for a new path and above all a new point of view.
Each episode tells us a little about the characters' previous lives,
while at the centre of it all are the female characters who, for better
or for worse, trigger events.
A change that is more appropriate than ever, for an even more
claustrophobic season that highlights, in addition to the female
figures, the wickedness of mankind struggling with the well-known
apocalypse. On this aspect, "Into the night" goes further and deeper
than many other series, not having many scruples in eliminating lovable
characters and showing rather surprising murders.
On the other hand, however, in the probable pursuit of entertainment,
the amount of events (betrayals, plans and wickedness) often leads to
confusing moments that do not give anything new or interesting to the
The sense of claustrophobia passes from the planes to a bunker in
Bulgaria run by NATO soldiers, where the protagonists took refuge at
the end of the first series. And so, in fact, the story picks up where
it left off, with some soldiers who can't stand newcomers and newcomers
trying to get respected.
The spark soon explodes, triggering a series of events that destroy
everything around them. The final cliffhanger opens up to a third
series that seems to be already in the works.
