“Something’s coming to us. Nobody must know.” Netflix has unveiled the full official trailer for a German space mystery series titled The Signal, arriving for streaming in early March. (We also recommend the US indie film The Signal from 2014.) When an astronaut mysteriously vanishes during a mission, her husband goes to investigate while navigating life as a single parent to their daughter. The exciting mystery drama is a 4-part limited series from Netflix. Florian David Fitz stars as Sven, with Yuna Bennett as his daughter Charlie, and Peri Baumeister as his missing wife Paula, plus Hadi Khanjanpour, Sheeba Chadha, Katharina Schüttler, Nilam Farooq, Meret Becker, and guest star Katharina Thalbach. So what’s going on here? She arrived back from Earth but never came back home… Where did she go? Paula was on the ISS. And up there, in the darkness of space, she discovered something. Or didn’t she? “There are things that are bigger than us.” There’s plenty of mystery here, I just hope she really did discover something and the twist isn’t “there’s nothing but she’s politically dangerous” or whatever. Bring on some aliens! Hopefully.
Here’s the main official trailer for Netflix’s sci-fi series The Signal, direct from Netflix’s YouTube:

The Earth has Paula (Peri Baumeister) again. After months in orbit, she is back on Earth. Now a short flight across the pond and she will be back with her family. But Paula never arrives home. Sven (Florian David Fitz) and his daughter Charlie wait at the gate. The plane seems to have been swallowed by the Earth. As Sven tries to protect his daughter from the terrible realization, he grasps at every straw that comes his way. And suddenly, it seems, he finds what he is looking for: Paula has left him a riddle, a common thread that Sven now follows. The more he pulls on it, the more his life collapses, the greater the mystery and threat becomes for him and Charlie and ultimately for the entire world. Because Paula was on the International Space Station. And up there, in the dark of space, she made an incredible discovery…
