In From the Cold is a brand new Netflix Original spy thriller series that will be available on this streaming platform at the end of this month. The recently released trailer of the movie shows its female protagonist, played by Margarita Levieva, rocking and going through a physical transformation.
The project was announced in January 2020 and scheduled to start filming in March in Spain, however, it was postponed due to the ongoing pandemic. In March 2021, which was a year later, the series finally reached the post-production process.
In From the Cold, written and executive produced by Adam Glass (Supernatural), follows an American single mother whose past comes back to her as CIA agents encounter her. She is asked about her years as a Russian secret spy and her secret slipped out. Jenny Franklin (Levieva) is, as inferred from the trailer, “the only human subject” to ever make it through a confidential KGB experiment which gave her extraordinary powers. It is hard to figure out these abilities just from the trailer, but we know that Jenny has exceptional physical power and outstanding fighting techniques. When it is indicated that someone is imitating her ‘Whisperer MO’ to commit a string of murders, Jenny is forced to return to her old dangerous identity to put an end to this villain. She is putting her whole new life on the line because if she fails, she may lose everything she’s been building on.
One of the most remarkable parts of the trailer is how Jenny, or Levieva, turns from a negligible American mother into a deadly assassin. It is quite stunning how she puts away her glasses and cuts her hair short and dyes it back to brown, just like in the past. Her demeanor also changes significantly, from innocent and benign to confident and self-willed.
Besides Levieva, In From the Cold also features Cillian O’Sullivan as CIA agent Chauncey, the man who pushes Jenny into her old identity. The series will also be joined by Charles Brice, Ivanna Sakhno, Lydia Fleming and Stasya Miloslavskaya. The series is co-directed by Ami Canaan Mann and Brigitte Stærmose.
In From the Cold, consisting of eight episodes with 50 minutes each, will be released on Netflix on January 28, 2022. Below are the new images and trailer of the series.
