With the new year comes an all-new show you’re going to love. Spinning Out is Netflix’s newest drama that will premiere on Jan. 1, 2020. The show follows Kat Baker (Kaya Scodelario), an up-and-coming elite figure skater who is ready to give up skating for good after a disastrous fall. However, when she’s given the opportunity to continue skating as a pair skater, she can’t resist. She’s paired up with the talented bad boy Justin (Evan Roderick). In the midst of trying to get her skating career back on track, Kat is also dealing with a complicated family and personal demons.
“Skating’s like breathing,” Kat says in the trailer. “I can’t imagine not doing it. And if I stopped, I’d feel like drowning.” Kat admits she’s “terrified” of skating again. It doesn’t help that her mother puts even more pressure on her. “You were perfect. And now when I look at you all I see is wasted potential,” Kat’s mother, played by January Jones, says to her.
Even though Justin is figure skating’s bad boy, he’s definitely charming. He tells Kat that she was “fearless” on the ice and reveals that he watches some of her old competition tapes. “It’s my porn,” he quips to her. Romance may be in the air for these two. The chemistry is certainly there. Justin thinks they could go all the way to the Olympics but it won’t be easy.
Spinning Out also stars Willow Shields, Amanda Zhou, Will Kemp, Svetlana Efremova, Mitchell Edwards, Sarah Wright Olsen, David James Elliott, Johnny Weir, Kaitlyn Leeb, and Jonathan Van Ness. The first season will consist of 10 episodes.
