The question about what happens after we die has intrigued humans since as long as we’ve been around and now, a new Netflix documentary is exploring just that.
Surviving Death is a six-part series based on Leslie Kean’s bestselling book of the same name and has been released on the streaming service as of January 6.
The show features interviews with people who claim to have seen the afterlife and also balances supernatural speculation with scientific-based facts.
“What does it mean to die, and is death the end of our existence? Weaving together innovative new research with firsthand accounts from those who’ve been close to – and even experienced – death, this series takes viewers on an extraordinary journey into a world beyond human existence as we know it,” the official synopsis reads.
The trailer, which was released on January 4, also depicts stories of children who claim to have lived previous lives (reincarnation), knowing every detail of what happened to someone who had previously died. It also showcases someone who died and then was brought back to life and a family who experienced symbols from their loved ones who had passed over.
