Netflix is ready to give us a glimpse of what dating apps will look like in the near future.
In a press release sent out earlier this week, Netflix announced their forthcoming series Osmosis which is set to hit the streaming service next year. The 8-episode sci-fi drama will take a look at an app that is way better than swiping on Tinder, blocking creeps on Plenty of Fish or being exasperated on OKCupid. Honestly, we wish that OSMOSIS was available right now. However, we all know that anything that seems too good to be true typically is.
Netflix said about the new series,
“Technology has conquered the last frontier decoding true love. Digging deep into its users brain data, the new dating app OSMOSIS can find a perfect match with 100% accuracy, turning the concept of an absolute soulmate into a reality.” Sounds pretty ideal, right? An app that takes all the work out of finding the perfect partner or spouse? Well, of course, nothing is perfect, so the show also gets into what is offered in exchange for the app’s services. “But is there a price to pay when letting an algorithm decide who you will love?” the release questions. “When in exchange for this undying, ageless love, technology can access the innermost recesses of your mind — and the best-kept secrets of your heart.”
Osmosis will be set in the city of love Paris, France. (If you can’t speak French, the subtitles will have to get you through.) Showrunner Audrey Fouché has described the series as both “incredibly seducing” and “extremely dangerous.” Osmosis is just one of six new series coming to Netflix by way of Europe.
With its futuristic series like The OA and Black Mirror, we don’t know how Osmosis won’t be a major hit.
