Here’s the official Netflix summary of the 6-episode The Snow Girl:
“Malaga, 2010, Three Wise Men parade. The most magical moment of the year turns into a nightmare for the Martín family when their daughter Amaya disappears in the crowd. Miren, a trainee journalist, begins an investigation parallel to that of Inspector Millán that will awaken aspects of her past that she would have liked to forget. With the help of her journalist colleague Eduardo, Miren will not stop until she finds the girl.”
As for this next Netflix series, Red Rose is currently one of the most-watched in the world. According to data from the company, the show racked up more than 21 million hours viewed globally for the 7-day period that ended on February 19, meaning it also outperformed more established titles like Wednesday and the new season of Ginny & Georgia.
In this 8-episode British horror series, per Netflix’s synopsis, a group of teens “must survive a summer of terror after downloading an app that makes dangerous demands with deadly consequences.”
