It is a Russian television series which is a resounding success in the international, and its subject is undoubtedly for something. The characters are faced with a devastating pandemic and are forced to flee Moscow to escape the disease. Any resemblance to the Covid-19 is completely coincidental, since “To the lake” was produced and broadcast in 2019, before the virus made the rounds of the world.

Predicting what the COVID -19 pandemic will do to Russia and when it will give way to a new normal is unusually hard. The only way to make predictions on that scale is to use models that expand on highly incomplete data, and those models are typically the territory of epidemiological researchers.

Very quickly, however, fiction exceeds reality and the series goes far beyond what we are experiencing with the Covid-19. The authorities are totally overwhelmed, and chaos sets in in Moscow and throughout Russia. A small group of Muscovites then tries to flee the city and reach a lake lost in the North, in Karelia. They will take eight episodes to achieve this (or not). Based on the plot of Vogonzero, a Russian book published in the early 2010s, the series was filmed before the start of the Covid-19 pandemic - and the authors never imagined for a second that their narrative starting point would be. "Caught up" by reality from the broadcast of the first episodes in December 2019.

The series is very successful in Russia, but international recognition does not occur until October 2020, with its broadcast on Netflix.

Second season

To broadcast "To the lake", Netflix would have spent $ 1.5 million according to the newspaper Kommersant, which is a record for a Russian series.
