This new drama acts as a sequel to the 1981 film based on Lothar-Günther Buchheim’s original novel.

While the film took place during 1941, this TV series begins nine months later, and follows two separate plots. While it follows the claustrophobic life of a German U-boat crew, the U-612, it also follows life in the submarine pen of La Rochelle, France, and among the local Resistance movement.

Das Boot begins with a double-bill at 21.00 on Sky Atlantic.
