Set those countdowns and get ready for the next Netflix show The longest nightwhich features Luis Callejo and Alberto Amman. The Spanish-language series will premiere on the streamer on Friday, July 8. As part of the date announcement, Netflix shared a brief preview of what viewers can expect.

The teaser opens with a man staring ominously at a clock. The first text to appear says “One night” followed by a countdown that begins at eight o’clock for the characters. Interspersed between additional text cards, the teaser provides brief glimpses of the series’ recurring characters as they are locked in the prison with no power or obvious way to escape. As the teaser comes to an end, The longest night shows people on fire, a man hitting something or someone, and another person screaming and getting carried away. The only dialogue comes at the end, as one man says, “It’s going to be a long night, Hugo.”


Set in Monte Baruca, a psychiatric prison, the six-part series follows a group of people completely cut off from outside communication. Meanwhile, gunmen surround the building with the primary goal of catching a serial killer named Simón Lago (Callejo).
