Luna Nera

Has anyone watched the show Luna Nera on Netflix? It's in Italian, I think but I watched it with English audio. The opening song is really good and it's definitely a somewhat strange show but I chalk it up to having a european sensibility when I'm an uncultured American. Anyway, it's about witches and witch hunters and has a sort of Romeo and Juliet element to it. It was really aesthetically satisfying. Wondering if anyone else has tried it.

I just realized I stopped watching it because I was done with the season. I try to block seasons out of my mind when I'm done, because I don't like the cliffhanger feeling. I googled it, and apparently Netflix didn't renew for a season 2 at this point, so, it may be just the 6 episodes. Too bad... I really liked the Italian language and the aesthetic. 

There have been a LOT of Witch-related shows out there lately. Some are better than others. Luna Nera, worth the time.

For me it was nice to watch, except for that idea that witches are born and have bestowed powers that function in abnormal and automatical ways (such as stress. an X-Men premise). Of course, it can be a metaphor of how energy can work, etc. But nah.

Indeed it comes with a feminist perspective on witchery, which is nice and political as anarchy  vs patriachy can be with a few witches.

The plot twist is interesting at the end. I don't know if a second season could be necessary. Lots of narrative threads can be already predictive.
