Kaleidoscope on Netflix: Release date, cast, trailer, and plot

Kaleidoscope is one of next year’s most anticipated series as Netflix attempts to break all television conventions and deliver its first non-linear streaming experience.

Subscribers are encouraged to watch the episodes in any order, as they are not numbered and do not follow a narrative. As a result, everyone will have a different journey and view of the series, from the order in which they watch the episodes.

You can also watch the show in a different order, and each change in the model will change the way you perceive the series and all the characters in it.

This revolutionary step towards user-driven TV challenges audiences to solve the puzzle with the pieces they can assemble throughout the series.

Read on to find out more about the plot and cast details, as well as the all-important release date, and watch a short snippet from Kaleidoscope.

When does Kaleidoscope come out on Netflix?

Kaleidoscope is available on Netflix worldwide January 1, 2023.

That means subscribers won’t have to wait long to experience this new adventure, set to land on Netflix on New Year’s Day.

As with many Netflix series, all episodes will be released at the same time.

Unsurprisingly, this groundbreaking project also features a star-studded ensemble cast, each with a character name and title.

From Breaking Bad Giancarlo Esposito plays the brains behind the operation, Leo, aka The Mastermind, while Paz Vega appears as the weapon specialist, Ava.

Rufus Sewell (Dark City) will play corporate security titan Roger, Tati Gabrielle appears as Hannah, The Protégé and Peter Mark Kendal plays the smuggler, Stan.

Meanwhile, Rosaline Elba it’s the explosives expert, Judy, Giordano Mendoza it’s the driver, RJ, Jay Courtney it’s Bob, the burglar, Niousha Noor is Nazan aka The Driven Agent e Soojeong Son plays Liz, the sister.

This show breaks convention by asking the audience to figure out the characters for themselves, as without a linear story to follow, it’s hard to know the characters well enough to predict their actions.

The supporting cast is also present Hemky Madera, Bubba Weiler, Stacey Oristano, Whit Washing, Max Casella, Robinne Lee And James Augustus Lee.

It would be a mistake to assume that a non-linear narrative would impact having a substantial plot. Instead, Kaleidoscope explores potentially the largest heist in history.

The plot is based on one of the strangest events on Wall Street. In 2012, when Hurricane Sandy hit, an underground vault was flooded and $70 billion in bearer bonds mysteriously disappeared.

The money lost was never recovered (and with creative license) Netflix used this incident as fertile ground from which to grow the complex series.

Though it revolves around this crime, the show spans over two decades in time. Each episode jumps back and forth from this single event, to explore shifting character loyalties and inevitable betrayals.

To maintain the unique immersive viewing experience for each subscriber, the episodes are not numbered but labeled with different colors and titles to encourage people to randomly choose which episode to watch next.

More so

The full episode list consists of:

  • Yellow: 6 weeks before the robbery
  • Green: 7 years before the robbery
  • Blue: 5 days before the robbery
  • Viola: 24 years before the robbery
  • Orange: 3 weeks before the robbery
  • Red: The morning after the robbery
  • Pink: 6 months later
  • White: The robbery

Viewers will see the entire kaleidoscope by the end of the show through the lens of their chosen color model.

Where can I find the Kaleidoscope trailer?

Netflix has given fans a teaser of their crime drama with a first look at the series, which also contains behind-the-scenes footage.

The cast and crew explain that what could be seen as a “gimmick” with this new way of telling the story is supported by an excellent script.

This new effort will surely create a new method of watching TV, where the program is tailored to the user, as opposed to a universal viewing experience.
