We rarely get to hear about TV shows from Iceland. But, Katla is an exception. It released as a sci-fi drama and dropped on June 17, 2021. The names of the two directors are Baltasar Kormákur and Sigurjón Kjartansson. Interestingly, these two people are also the writers of the show.
The cast of the show includes Guðrún Ýr Eyfjörð, Íris Tanja Flygenring, and Ingvar Eggert Sigurðsson. The story of the show is also piquing. It focuses itself on a small Icelandic town. Now, because of this active volcano, the town is always covered with raining ash. Hence, most of the villagers have already left the town. But, there are still some people who live there are refuse the leave.
Katla: The Plot
The Plot of show gets surprisingly interesting and twisted. We see that at the beginning of the show that there are several people who are presumed dead. We see that all of these people start to return from the dead. They used to appear and they used to covered in ash and volcanic clay. This whole phenomena of people returning from the dead rattles the town.
All of these people come back without any reasons. So, these whole series of incidents rattles the township. And over the course of the eight episodes, we get to find out the answer to some of these mysteries.

Then, she discovers a corpse. It is later identified as the real body of Asa. Other people also return from the dead. It is later found out that they are just doppelgangers.
