Superstition Season 1 Plot: What’s it about?
The story is based in a town named La Rochelle in the Deep South where superstitions, ancient myths, and legends are true. There is where the Hastings family lives. They are the sole owners of the mysterious funeral home and the graveyard in La Rochelle. In addition to providing funeral services for all faiths, the “family speciality” is handling “afterlife care” for any unexplained deaths of people who occur at the hands of demonic “Internals.” There is another unworldly phenomenon that has long haunted the town. The Hastings make use of arcane weaponry, incredible strength, mystical alchemy skills, and their in-depth knowledge of the occult and ancient lore from around the world to quell the evil within the shadows of the town. The first season got good responses from the critics and audiences for its treatment of the storyline. It had a few drawbacks that needed to be fixed but overall, was an average show. It keeps the audiences engaged and addresses the current zeitgeist. The uniqueness of the show is that it’s multi-layered. It is superficial, fun, metaphysical, profound and complex all at the same time. It can gain attention from the audiences and build their interest from the beginning.
