Tales from the Loop Trailer: Amazon’s Mysterious Sci-Fi Series


Amazon’s upcoming sci-fi series Tales from the Loop released its first trailer this week and it may or may not have some elements in common with Netflix’s monster hit series Stranger Things. The show is based on the work of Swedish artist Simon Stålenhag, who is known for mixing rural landscapes with images of robots and other science-fiction-y stuff. There is a tabletop role-playing game of the same name also based on his work that is set in the ’80s and draws from movies like E.T. and Stand By Me but it’s not entirely clear if the show is doing the same. The plot revolves around “the mindbending adventures of the people who live above the Loop, a machine built to unlock and explore the mysteries of the universe – making things previously relegated to science fiction, possible.” Tales from the Loop stars Rebecca Hall, Jonathan Pryce and Paul Schneider and it arrives on Amazon on April 3rd; check out the trailer below and let us know what you think.

  • Always been a fan of Stålenhag’s art and whether or not that translates to this being an interesting show, I think it’s a pretty cool move from Amazon.

    Definitely adding it to my watch list.
