‘KAOS’ Trailer Starring Jeff Goldblum


  • Netflix has dropped the teaser trailer for ‘KAOS’.
  • The show, dark comedy about Greek Gods in the modern world, stars Jeff Goldblum.
  • This new series was created by Charlie Covell.

Jeff Goldblum as a powerful, yet slightly confused, godlike figure? Well, if it worked for Taika Waititi in ‘Thor: Ragnarok’, then it can surely work again. And in the case of ‘KAOS’, he’s less god-like and more actual God.

Yes, here, the man who will forever be chaotician Ian Malcolm from ‘Jurassic Park’ gets to unleash a potentially darker side of himself, albeit one clad in a sweatsuit and sporting a gold digital watch like a total boomer.

And at a time when the Greek Gods have recently been given new lease on life via the Disney+ adaptation of the first ‘Percy Jackson’ book, this promises to be something more for the grownups.

What’s the story of ‘KAOS’?

Having long enjoyed his status as King of The Gods, Zeus’ (Jeff Goldblum) reign has never been truly threatened. That is until he wakes up one morning and discovers a wrinkle on his forehead. Believing it to be the harbinger of an ancient prophecy which foretells his destruction, neurosis sets in: Zeus becomes convinced his fall is coming. As his paranoia takes hold, the God of Gods –– seeing signs everywhere –– starts to dangerously self-destruct.

And he’s right to be worried. Zeus’ one time friend and now prisoner, Prometheus, is orchestrating a plan to bring him down. The plan involves three disparate humans, all of whom are totally unaware of their cosmic significance or the part they must play in saving the world. No pressure. (Some pressure).

This new comic spin on gods (and surely monsters too) comes courtesy of Charlie Covell, who last made comedy drama series ‘The End of the F***ing World’ for Netflix.

Originally, his first casting plan (when the show was first announced way back in 2022) was for Hugh Grant to play Zeus, and while we can certainly see Grant’s dryly sarcastic voice coming out of a new version of the god character, we’re certain Goldblum will bring his inimitable take to it.

When will ‘KAOS’ be on Netflix?

Netflix has yet to confirm when ‘KAOS’ will begin its reign on the streaming service.
