Five years after “Dead girls don’t lie” was launched on Netflix and caused a sensation there, the hit series will soon also be shown outside of the streaming service – and completely free of charge on Pluto TV.
The Netflix teen drama series “Dead Girls Don’t Lie” made waves, especially with its explosive topics and the relentless (but later somewhat defused) depiction of a suicide. The book adaptation became a global hit for the streaming provider. With almost 500 hours watched each, the first two seasons are still in the top 10 most watched Netflix series of all time (season 1 in 9th place and season 2 in 7th place).
With season 4, the successful series came to an end in June 2020. Almost exactly two years later, non-Netflix customers will also surprisingly have the opportunity to take a look at the much-discussed format:
“Dead Girls Don’t Lie” will run completely free of charge from June 4, 2022 on the advertising-financed streaming platform Pluto TV. That reports Spotlight: Movie.
This is Pluto TV
The main program of Pluto TV works very similar to a classic TV channel (or several channels). The provider shows a continuous program on several sub-channels, which you can switch to at any time. A few selected titles are also available on demand, but most of the content only runs at a specific time.
That was recently at the German premiere of the fourth season of “Star Trek: Discovery” which is no longer on Netflix but exclusively on the “Star Trek“-parent company Paramount owned Pluto TV took place. The Paramount affiliation should also be the explanation why “Dead Girls Don’t Lie” finds its way to the online service, after all “13 Reasons Why” (the original title of the series) was also produced by Paramount.
Also with “Dead Girls Don’t Lie” Pluto TV will most likely proceed in such a way that the episodes are not subsequently made available on demand. So it’s important to tune in on time when double episodes of the series will be shown every day from 10 p.m. on June 4th.
This is what “Dead Girls Don’t Lie” is about
When introverted high school student Clay Jensen (Dylan Minnette) comes home from school one day as usual, he finds a package on his doorstep. Inside are several tapes that his classmate Hannah Baker (Katherine Langford) sent him before she recently took her own life.
On the recordings, she blames 13 people from her immediate environment for her fatal decision. Clay is now supposed to send the cassettes to the appropriate people, which gradually gives a clearer picture of the misunderstood Hannah. Clay himself is one of these 13 people…
