China’s Hit Time-Loop Drama “Reset” Comes to Netflix

0

The mega-popular TV show Reset will be released on Netflix in select regions on April 1. No, Asia-based sci-fi fans, this is not a joke: The hit series will be available in Taiwan, Singapore, Vietnam, Malaysia, and Brunei.

The suspense drama is adapted from an online novel and trails two youths who are trying to save passengers from a bus bombing. The catch? They are trapped in a mind-bending time loop.

The 15-episode program premiered on Tencent Video in January and registered 1.8 billion views by February. The show is also available on YouTube with English subtitles.

Reset‘s official Weibo account announced the Netflix release on March 11. The related hashtag has since gone viral on Weibo, accumulating almost 62 million views.

“They deserve more visibility!” opined one Weibo user. “I hope there will be more high-quality Chinese dramas.”

Another commenter wrote, “Great, let me binge watch it again on Netflix.”

“I hope Netflix will go worldwide for the release of Reset,” tweeted another fan.

Although Netflix is still not legally available in China, the streaming platform has been purchasing and creating Chinese-language shows as part of its expansion strategy in Asia.
