Executive produced by Upgrade Productions, Volcano is based on the original idea by Taraba and Sila and written by Rúnarsson and Mateja Božičević (Amazon Prime’s Carnival Row).

The mixed-language series (English, Icelandic, Croatian) will be shot in Iceland and Croatia, with production scheduled to start early next year.

The plot is set following a crushing volcanic eruption which devastates Iceland and leads to a UN directive relocating the surviving residents to Croatia.
