The Boroughs: geriatric heroes take on Netflix, watch out Bingo Night (TV news).
Ever felt like your grandparents could use a little more excitement in their lives? Enter The Boroughs, the latest Netflix scifi/horror show that’s about to make retirement communities the newest hotspots for supernatural action.
From the minds of the Duffer Brothers, creators of Stranger Things, comes a supernatural mystery that’s part Cocoon, part Stranger Things, and a whole lot of “Wait, is this really happening?” Because when life gives you otherworldly monsters, why not let the older folks handle them?
Set in a picturesque retirement community in the New Mexico desert, The Boroughs is the brainchild of Jeffrey Addiss and Will Matthews, who also created The Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance. It’s a show that answers the burning question: “What happens when you cross senior citizens with an alien threat?” The answer? A motley crew of elderly heroes who must band together to save the world (and their weekly Bingo games) from otherworldly monsters.
With eight episodes on the horizon, this Netflix series promises to deliver a delightful blend of suspense, humor, and heartwarming moments. And let’s face it: who wouldn’t want to see their grandparents take on the forces of darkness?
The Duffer Brothers have thrown their weight behind this bizarre yet intriguing concept, stating that while the heroes of The Boroughs may have a few more wrinkles than the kids from Stranger Things, they’re just as lovable and courageous.
As Addiss and Matthews put it, working alongside the Duffer Brothers has been a dream come true. And with their combined experience in blending heart and horror, they’re ready to take audiences on a wild ride through the dark secrets lurking beneath the sunny façade of The Boroughs.
So, get ready to binge-watch these geriatric warriors as they take on supernatural foes and prove that age is just a number – or in this case, an advantage. Say goodbye to knitting circles and hello to monster hunting! Netflix’s The Boroughs is here to turn your perceptions of retirement communities upside down, in true Duffer Brothers style.
