Cleverman is a smart, sexy and startlingly original drama that sees a group of non-humans battling for survival in a world where humans feel increasingly inferior to them and want to silence, exploit and kill them.
Cleverman tells the story of two indigenous half-brothers who join forces to battle an ancient mythological monster. In this not-too-distant dystopian future, an ancient species known as Hairypeople fight for survival on the fringes of society.
Series two sees Koen, still learning to truly harness his powers as the Cleverman, as the only one who can stop the bloodshed between human and Hairy. Ranged against him is the full force of the government, spearheaded by his brother Waruu, who is now empowered by Hairy strength within him, and who has found the one thing which can negate Koen’s powers, and render him mortal.
