This subtitled series premiered on Netflix on February 19, 2021. It has one season, consisting of 6 hour-long episodes.
Described as if Game of Thrones and The 100 had a baby, Tribes of Europa has been praised for being socially-relevant and incredibly dark. The show takes place in the year 2074, in “post-apocalyptic Europe,” and follows “three siblings from the peaceful Origine tribe who are separated and forced to forge their own paths.”
The series is produced by Wiedemann & Berg Television, the producers behind Netflix’s first original German series, Dark, and the Golden Globe-nominated coming-of-age drama, Never Look Away.
