Based on the popular comics anthology Metal Hurlant, each of the 12 episodes in this series takes place on a different planet with a different cast, linked together by the presence of an asteroid which plays a vital role in their lives – and the future of their civilization.
The international cast includes James Marsters, Rutger Hauer, Michael Jai White, and Joe Flanigan.
Helmed by Guillaume Lubrano, the English-language show was produced by We Productions and is co-produced by Belvision and Nexus. “Metal Hurlant Chronicles” is based on the French sci-fi and fantasy comics anthology published in the U.S. as Heavy Metal and created by comic artists Jean Giraud (a.k.a. Moebius) and Philippe Druillet in 1974.
