Unorthodox is one of the breakout series of the year.
This four-episode portrait of a young woman’s escape from her restrictive Satmar Hasidic community has emerged as a global phenomenon since debuting in March. Starring Israeli actors Shira Haas and Amit Rahav in stunning performances, Netflix’s Unorthodox effortlessly weaves between Yiddish, English, and German languages, and jumps between two very different worlds—Williamsburg, Brooklyn, and Berlin, Germany—as it explores the limits and beauty of faith, the power of passion, and the meaning of freedom. Join Haas, Rahav, and showrunner Anna Winger in conversation with Entertainment Weekly’s David Canfield as they reflect on the show’s response around the world, revisit the making of key scenes, and address whether there’s more story to tell.
