A brand-new adaptation of Greek mythology is coming to Netflix this year, and we can't wait.

In Kaos, the streamer writes, "Zeus (Jeff Goldblum) has long enjoyed his status as King of The Gods. That is until he wakes up one morning and discovers a wrinkle on his forehead. Neurosis sets in, setting him off on a dangerous, paranoid path. Zeus becomes convinced his fall is coming – and starts to see signs of it everywhere."

"I'm absolutely thrilled to be making KAOS, and I can't think of a more exciting or dynamic team of people to bring everything to life. Georgi and Runyararo are both visionary directors with pleasingly dark senses of humour – I'm delighted to be working with them both," Covell said in a statement when the show was first announced.

"We are delighted to have such a phenomenal cast and team delivering Charlie Covell's unique, contemporary vision of a mythical world. Joyful and dark, Kaos will entertain, amuse and move you all at once," Sophie Klein, the Director of UK Series at Netflix said in a statement.

No premiere date has been set yet.

There will be eight episodes in the season. Netflix said the show will premiere sometime in 2024 when they shared a trailer in March (watch above), but no specific date has been announced yet.
