Netflix acquires the Belgian limited series “The Coyotes”; Coming in December 2021
Netflix has acquired the exclusive worldwide rights to Coyotes (or coyotes as it will be styled in all other regions). The French-language teenage thriller series is a cross between List A, Riverdale, and External banks.
The series first aired on the Belgian RTBF network in May 2021 with episodes airing weekly. They were also added and are still available to this day on the network’s streaming platform called Auvio. 6 episodes broadcast in total with no more planned in the future.
Netflix has acquired the international rights for the show (everywhere outside of Belgium), including rights for the UK, US and Canada. All six seasons will arrive on December 3.
coyotes revolves around a group of Boy Scouts arriving at Camp Warnaffe for their great summer expedition. The group is called The Coyotes and they prepare for a summer of mischief, but things take a turn after a drug-fueled night at a quarry where the group of teenagers stumble upon a cave containing precious diamonds. Their friendships are put to the test throughout the six episodes.
The relatively unknown cast is headlined by Olivia Castanho who has now appeared in a few high-profile Netflix Originals in the form of Sexify and Nobody sleeps in the woods.
Nilton Martins, Steve Driesen, Louka Minella, Victoria Bluck and Félix Vannoorenberghe also appear in the series.
coyotes was developed by Axel du Bus de Warnaffe, Vincent Lavachery and Anne-Lise Morin.
Will there be an English dub for The Coyotes?
At this time, it looks like there will be no English audio dubbing for the teen thriller. Instead, you’ll only have the original French audio along with a host of subtitle options that will differ depending on where you live. If you are wondering why the series is in French when it comes from Belgium, it is because there are three main languages.
coyotes joins a number of Netflix Originals that have released from Belgium although most of the entries so far have been co-productions or deals where Netflix only owns the exclusive international rights. Major shows in the region include Sheltered, Beau Sejour Hotel, Tabula rasa, The break, and Unit 42.
