It's safe to say that Netflix has another hit on their hands with The One , a recently released series that's already attracting tons of attention. Set in what looks to be the all-too-near future, The One deals with the creation of a dating service like no other — one that uses your DNA to match you with the person you're genetically guaranteed to fall in love with. Actress Hannah Ware, who you may recognize from her appearance in the space-centered series The First , stars as Rebecca, the mysterious CEO in question. There's also plenty to be confident about behind the camera: Howard Overman, who blessed us all with the offbeat superhero series Misfits , takes the reins as the creator, writer, and executive producer. The eight-episode sci-fi crime drama is based on the John Marrs novel of the same name, and has taken the number three spot in Netflix's top ten list today.

Now, Netflix's latest offering is here to suggest taking the concept of dating to another—more genetically-based—level. The eight-part British series theorises how love and dating may transform in the near future with DNA matching and genetic-based dating, asking its audience: "What if we could find our perfect partner through DNA matching? Based on a book of the same name, the series follows the creator of a DNA testing service and various couples who have been matched due to their genetic compatibility, giving us an eerily relevant snapshot into a potential future of love matching. Given the fact that many of us already submit DNA swabs for information on ancestry and family history, it doesn't sound like an impossible probability—especially if your thumb is tired of swiping left. Keep reading for everything you need to know about The One —from the plot and cast members to when you can stream it in Australia. Similar to the morbid real-world prophecies Black Mirror is known for, Netflix's The One follows a similar lead focusing on a dating service that uses DNA technology to find the user's perfect match.
