The story of Jinn takes place in Amman, the capital of Jordania, and is teased as both contemporary and fantastic. It follows the adventures of a group of teenagers who is about to unleash a demon trapped in the ruins of Petra, a legendary city built 300 years before J.C. The Jinn, who can turn invisible and manipulate people’s minds, will create division in the crew all the while offering them supernatural powers to rip each other apart.
It is not the first time that Netflix gets inspired by the Arabic culture for a tv series of this particular genre, as it already brought us the more confidential but also creepier Ghoul, an Indian production meant for a young audience who likes to binge watch. The first season of Jinn only has six episodes of about thirty minutes each, and will arrive on Netflix on June 13.
