Netflix is bringing another thrilling mystery to our screens this December. Originally titled El desorden que dejas, The Mess You Leave Behind is a Spanish TV series. It has all the right elements that makes it a perfect thriller to binge-watch on a weekend. The trailer is out and you’ll be able to watch the series in a month.
The reasons why you shouldn’t miss The Mess You Leave Behind
El desorden que dejas, or The Mess You Leave Behind, is not the series you should be leaving behind in 2020. Thrillers are totally my thing and I just cannot wait 4 more weeks till the series comes out. Keeping my fingers crossed on this one, honestly.
The other best thing about this series, is that it is based on an award winning novel by the same name, written by Carlos Montero. The plot of the series revolves around Raquel (Inma Cuesta), who is a young literature teacher. To give her marriage a second chance, she moves to the birth town of her husband. However, that town is holding a dark secret and Raquel tries to unravel it.
As the trailer shows, Raquel joins the post of literature teacher after the previous one committed suicide. Not exactly an easy task, but apparently she did not know that before she joined the position of a substitute teacher. The students are not very welcoming as well. Others warn Raquel to beware of the students, one of which is Iago (Arón Piper ).
While talking to Variety earlier this year, Montero shed light on the theme behind The Mess You Leave Behind. He confirmed the concept is opposite of Elite. The book/series will focus on the students’ harassment of teachers. We have seen many movies and read many books that shows the bullying between students. However, a very few show the other prospect of high schools and adult world.
We are always dealing with bullying between students, and yet many teachers can tell you about when they feeling attacked by students and being afraid of even going to class.
The Mess You Leave Behind will be released on Netflix on December 11, 2020. Mark your calendar and watch the trailer to double-mark it:
