Plot Synopsis

3% is a post-apocalyptic thriller set in near-future Brazil. In a world where the elite inhabit an island paradise far from the crowded slums, mainlanders get one chance to join the 3% saved from squalor. Only a select few are allowed to join this privileged society -- but first they must prove they are worthy by participating in an intense and competitive process. On Friday, November 25, 2016 at 3:01am ET/12:01am PT, Netflix released the entire first season of 3%.

On Friday, April 27, 2018 at 3:01am ET/12:01am PT, Netflix released the 10-episode second season of 3%. As the next Process nears, the Cause hatches a drastic plan to stamp out the ritual for good, and Michele finds herself in a precarious position. Season 2 opens with days to go before the next Process, Joana trying to prove herself to the leader of the Cause, and Michele facing an ultimatum from Ezequiel. As Rafael races to score a spot on the Inland squad, flashbacks recap his first year in the Offshore. Fernando reluctantly coaches Process hopefuls.

Netflix released the eight-episode third season of 3% on Friday, June 7, 2019 at 3:01am ET/12:01am PT. One year has passed and the Shell, conceived as an alternative to the Offshore and the Inland, is now established as a place where everyone is welcome. But a catastrophic sandstorm, coupled with a suspicious malfunction, destroys its food and water supply. With the threat of hunger, the residents demand a Process to determine who will stay at the Shell. What will it take for this new community to thrive?
On Friday, August 14, 2020 at 3:01am ET/12:01am PT, Netflix released the entire seven-episode fourth and final season of 3%. The conflict between the Shell and the Offshore is wide open and war is imminent. But while Process 108 begins under a new and even more aggressive leadership, members of the Shell are invited to a diplomatic visit to the Offshore. The peace proposal is the excuse for the destruction that will define the future of this divided world.
