The German division of Netflix is expanding its library of content, and one of the most anticipated projects coming from there is Cassandra, a sci-fi limited series about a family moving into a smart home that saw its last occupants die under mysterious circumstances. Surely, the home robot with abandonment issues doesn’t have anything to do with that?

Originally announced back in September 2023, the limited series is written and directed by Benjamin Gutsche (Der Antrag, All You Need) and produced by Eva Stadler and Christian Becker for Rat Pack Filmproduktion.

The production company has worked on a slew of projects for Netflix before, including the criminally underrated Blood & Gold movie that was released last year, We Are the Wave and Hard Feelings.

The project was most recently shown off at the Next on Netflix Germany event in March 2024.

Here’s everything we know about Netflix’s Cassandra:

What’s the plot of Cassandra?

Here’s the plot summary of Netflix’s Cassandra:

“The oldest smart home in Germany has been empty since the owners died under mysterious circumstances over 50 years ago. When Samira moves in with her family today, the electronic household helper Cassandra awakens from her decades-long slumber. Developed in the 1970s to provide for a family and out of service after the death of its former residents, Cassandra now senses a second chance. However, she considers herself to be much more than a fairy godmother who gets everything in order. Cassandra soon sees herself as an equal member of the family and does everything she can to not be left alone again – using every means at her disposal.”

The series clearly draws a lot of inspiration from some big titles the sci-fi space whether they be movies or books. Based on what we’ve seen thus far, the series is a mix of Smart House, Her, Ex Machina on the movie front while it has some elements ofI Have No Mouth, and I Must Scream and Demon Seed on the book front.
