Netflix has dropped the German series Tribes of Europa, which has been made by some of the team behind the international smash hit Dark. The show is a sci-fi epic following three siblings who are ripped apart by tragedy when their village is attacked and sent on a perilous mission to save the human race. Express.co.uk has everything you need to know about the new series including the episode count and more.
How many episodes are in Tribes of Europa?
Tribes of Europa was released in one go on Netflix globally on February 19 with all six episodes available to binge.
The series has been created by Philip Koch, who was inspired by the Brexit referendum in 2016 and wrote a short concept about the end of Europe.
Little did he know this would be the beginning of the series Tribes of Europa which has grown into a mammoth story in which the continent becomes divided into several tribes.
The show follows on from the immense success of another German Netflix show Dark, which really made its mark.
Although the series wrapped up in 2020, it has paved the way for more German storytelling.
Producer Quirin Berg said: “Philip’s idea was so undauntedly different and huge, so German and yet so global, it simply was the answer to the question of the next evolutionary step of a German series.”
While Netflix executive Rachel Eggebeen said: “After the experiences with Dark, we knew that genre stories that create whole new worlds would also work on a global scale – it won’t matter whether the viewers live in Germany, Brazil or Japan.
“We were convinced that this show would be a perfect fit for Netflix and our audience.”
Tribes of Europa is set in a brutal post-apocalyptic world in 2074 with the world now in chaos.
The groups: the Crimson Republic, the Crows, the Origins and the Atlantians vie for survival against the odds.
Tribes of Europa starts when siblings Elja (David Ali Rashed), Kiano (Emilio Sakraya) and Liv (Henriette Confurius) find their village under attack by a group of warriors who are seeking out a mysterious cube.
The family manages to get hold of the cube, which holds the key to saving humanity, and are tasked with getting it across the continent.
But they are pulled apart and embark on separate journeys as they navigate through this dangerous world.
Each of the tribes has its own agenda with the Crimson Republic consisting of the European Eurocorps army, which is trying to maintain some semblance of the old civilization and guard the other tribes.
Then there’s the Crows who favour a more dictatorial system of ruling and wish to expand and enslave other tribes.
The Origines shun technology which they believe brought about the downfall of Europe and lead pacifist existences amid nature.
Finally, there are the little-known Atlantians who seem to be the most technologically advanced out of all the tribes, living on in an undisclosed location and somehow survived the Global Blackout.

Tribes of Europa was filmed over a matter of months in 2019 with parallels crews working in Croatia and the Czech Republic.
However, the show was hit by the pandemic after lockdown came during the post-production phase of the show.
Creator Koch said of this obstacle: “When I originally developed the story, the apocalyptic mood was more pronounced.
“But as we now feel as if we were experiencing the real apocalypse, we elaborated the topic “new beginning” more strongly also in the postproduction.”
He added: “The series has become more positive and, at the same time, more epic.”
