The Fades are coming…

Can you see The Fades. Are you sure you want to?

BBC Three are about to launch their new supernatural drama The Fades. Is this the next Being Human? Only time will tell but I can tell you that I am really excited by this show and it looks great.

 

Award-winning writer, Jack Thorne (Skins, Cast Offs, This Is England 86) explains the genesis of his new fantasy horror series for BBC Three and who or what are The Fades.

“The Fades is a fantasy horror series about 17-year-old Paul (Iain De Caestecker) who becomes embroiled in a battle between the living and the dead. But fundamentally I think The Fades is a love story between Mac (Daniel Kaluuya) and Paul. As a kid I didn’t have a best friend that I could share everything with and could be a team with, and this show is about a kid that’s got one – it’s a love story about two best friends.

“The Fades are dead people, spirits that are trapped here in our world. There is no reason why fades are chosen. Death is random and the Fades are those that are left behind. They are angry, truly angry about the randomness and the pain and suffering. They are rotting, they can’t be touched, they’re prisoners on Earth and the series is about the Fades trying to break through back into the world of the living.

 

Below is the trailer for the series and over the week we will bring you some more content as the air date approaches. Also Geek Syndicate have been invited to special screening tonight which we will report on soon. Anyway take a look at hope you cannot see the Fades.
