The first teaser trailer for Netflix’s upcoming Greek mythology-inspired series Kaos has been released, and it features Jeff Goldblum as the Greek god of thunder and sky, Zeus.
Off the back of the success of Percy Jackson and the Olympians’ on Disney+, Netflix has now finally released the first peek at its very own Greek mythology-inspired series called Kaos, which features Jeff Goldblum.

The teaser trailer for Kaos has the iconic movie star portraying Greek god Zeus, the father of all gods, at a stage where the character is facing the end of his reign over the world. As in the Percy Jackson live-action series, Netflix’s dark comedy is set in a modern milieu, delighting watchers with a contemporary infusion of Greek mythology.

The series is touted to explore themes of power, gender politics, and life in the underworld, as the brutal ruler of Mount Olympus will do everything he can to stay in power.

The stars in Netflix’s new Greek mythology-inspired show

Kaos is being brought to the screens by End of the F…ing World creator Charlie Covell, who has been working on the show since 2018. The cast also includes Janet McTeer as Hera, Cliff Curtis as Poseidon, David Thewlis as Hades, Rakie Ayola as Persephone, Nabhaan Rizwan as Dionysus, Killian Scott as Orpheus, Aurora Perrineau as Riddy, Misia Butler as Caneus, Leila Farzad as Ari, and Stanley Townsend as king Minos.

This is a major scripted TV project for Jeff Goldblum after his recurring roles in Search Party, Season 2. Before this Greek mythology-inspired Netflix series, the star hosted a Disney+ documentary series, The World According to Jeff Goldblum, which lasted for just two seasons.

As per Netflix’s global fan event Tudum, the official synopsis for Kaos reads, “It’s about the pantheon of gods, mortals, and everyone in between inhabiting the intriguing world of KAOS. Zeus is at the top of the mythological food chain as the King of the Gods, a position he has enjoyed for quite some time. Then one day he discovers the unthinkable—a wrinkle on his forehead.”

It continues, “Paranoia builds, leading the supreme deity down a dangerous and unstable path. Zeus is convinced his fall is nigh and sees omens of doom everywhere. And he’s right to be worried because Zeus’ onetime friend and now prisoner, Prometheus, is orchestrating a plan to bring him down. The plan involves three disparate humans, all of whom are totally unaware of their cosmic significance or the part they must play in saving the world.”

Kaos will not be the first time that Netflix has dived into mythology, being that the streaming service currently has two popular adult-animated shows which feature multiple gods, Blood of Zeus and Record of Ragnarok. At present, Rebel Moon director Zack Snyder is also developing Twilight of the Gods, an animated series which takes place in the world of Norse mythology.
