IT IS au­tumn 1942, in the midst of World War II, and sub­ma­rine war­fare is be­com­ing ever more bru­tal.

In oc­cu­pied France, U-612 is now ready for its maiden voy­age, pre­par­ing to head into the in­creas­ingly bru­tal war­fare with its young crew­men, in­clud­ing the new com­man­der, Klaus Hoff­mann (Rick Okon, pic­tured).

Per­son­al­i­ties clash and loy­al­ties shat­ter as they are tried by the un­speak­able hor­rors of war. Will they live to make it back ashore?

Mean­while, hun­dreds of miles away, Si­mone Strasser’s (Vicky Krieps) world is quickly spin­ning out of con­trol. She is deep into an im­pos­si­ble love af­fair that has her torn be­tween the two sides.

This Ger­man mini-se­ries, a se­quel to 1981’s Das Boot, also stars Lizzy Ca­plan and James D’Arcy.
