exception | Official Trailer | Netflix

Here’s the official synopsis for the series, which is definitely going to mix some big questions (like “What makes a human, human?”) into its running-and-screaming-in-deep-space action: “In the distant future, humanity has been forced to leave Earth and migrate to another galaxy. A spacecraft is sent to a planet to terraform it and the crew is created one by one by a biological 3D printer. However, a fatal error occurs during the creation of one of the members. The crew then begins to encounter a series of unpredictable events.”

Exception has an original story and story and screenplay by Hirotaka Adachi, best-known by the pen name Otsuichi (Goth, Calling You), and if the character designs catch your eye, that’s because they are by Yoshitaka Amano, an influential artist and illustrator whose credits include Speed Racer, Vampire Hunter D, the Final Fantasy franchise, and Neil Gaiman’s The Sandman: Dream Hunters.


Exception hits Netflix October 13.
