In the intriguing sci-fi webseries Here We Wait, purgatory is a mysterious restaurant named "Here," a way station where souls of the newly deceased assemble before transiting to their eternal destiny.
The focus of the 20-episode webseries is on the interpersonal relationships between Here's staff - souls from all walks of life, time periods, and ideologies - whose true purpose is to ease their spectral patrons' transition into the afterlife.
However, an unknown element has been introduced to Here, throwing the cosmic scales dangerously out of balance.
The staff must investigate the cause of this imbalance before catastrophe strikes.
Unlike dense, impenetrable sci-fi dramas that explore similar themes like Lost, The OA, and The Leftovers, Here We Wait is refreshingly straightforward and accessible.
There is no byzantine mythology to navigate, no murky plot twists and red herrings introduced in an attempt to seem pretentiously profound.
Here is purgatory; its staff are deceased souls ruminating on their previous lives while confronting an unknown future.
As of this writing, 10 out of 20 episodes have been released, with new installments due each Tuesday.
