"In a Norwegian town poisoned by pollution and rattled by melting glaciers, the End Times feel all too real. It’ll take a legend to battle an old evil," reads the description of Netflix's all-new superhero drama series Ragnarok on their website.
The show, however, has nothing to do with Marvel's Thor series or Chris Hemsworth. The series is already getting rave reviews with the official synopsis reading, "Ragnarok is a coming-of-age drama building on and contributing to a new and surprising angle on Norse mythology. The series is set in the small, fictitious town of Edda, situated in the grand, breathtaking Norwegian nature."
For fans of coming-of-age superhero flicks like Teen Wolf and Sabrina, Ragnarok could be the new show to get hooked on to.
