What is the plot of The Imperfects?

Not very much is known about the plot of The Imperfects, but the official logline does give us a few things to chew on until more information is released:

The drama revolves around three twenty-somethings who, following an experimental gene therapy, are turned into monsters who band together to hunt down the scientist responsible and force him to make them human again. Dr. Sydney Burke, a brilliant scientist looking to fix her past mistakes, both professional and ethical, allies with Abbi, Juan and Tilda to track down the scientist responsible for their grim fates. Meanwhile, Dr. Alex Sarkov, a former child prodigy, refuses to let anyone or anything interfere with his goal of rewriting the human genome and ushering in the next stage of human evolution.

Netflix’s The Imperfects will be led by Italia Ricci, who is known for her roles in Designated Survivor, Chasing Life and Supergirl. She will play Dr. Sydney Burke, a brilliant scientist looking to fix her past mistakes, both professional and ethical, by allying with Abbi, Juan and Tilda to track down the scientist responsible for their grim fates. Ricci’s casting was announced on April 15, 2021.

The same day Netflix unveiled the series with a detailed list of the remaining main cast members, introducing each one with the descriptions of their respective characters. Given that Netflix doesn’t do that every time, it is safe to say they have faith in The Imperfects and are willing to promote it more.

The series entered production in April 2021 and this was officially announced by Netflix along with the cast. The first season of The Imperfects is expected to wrap on June 30, 2021. Filming is taking place in Vancouver, Canada.


When will The Imperfects be released on Netflix?

No release date has been set for The Imperfects as of yet, but it will most likely be released sometime in the first half of 2022.
