Disney Plus has launched another UK original titled Extraordinary, which is set to put viewers in a trance with its mystical premise.

The eight-parter follows 25-year-old Jen who is the only ordinary person in a world where everyone develops super powers on their 18th birthday.

Think Encanto meets Misfits!

In a world where one can change their hair colour with a snap, and another can turn back time, even the cats are blessed with a power….poor Jen will happily accept anything!

The official synopsis reads: ‘Adrift in a big, confusing world and armed with nothing but a bit of hope, a lot of desperation and her flatmates, Jen begins her journey to find her maybe-superpower.’

But will Jen discover that being different from the rest might be the greatest power of all?

Here’s everything you need to know about the brand-new series…

Tell Me Everything actress Máiréad Tyers (Jen) leads the cast as she is determined to fit in with the supernatural crowd.

Poldark star Sofia Oxenham and Screw actor Bilal Hasna co-star as Jen’s childhood best friend Carrie, who can communicate with the dead, and her time-manipulating boyfriend, Kash.

Derry Girls legend Siobhan McSweeney also features in the series as Jen’s mum Mary, while Desmond’s actor Robbie Gee plays her step-dad Ian.

Is there a trailer?

In the trailer Jen shares that her greatest weaknesses include: ‘crippling insecurity, selfish, and lacking ambition.’

While she tries to assure herself that she doesn’t need a super power, it becomes evident that Jen wants to fit in more than anything.
