Although he has risen to worldwide fame with “Maxton Hall,” Damian Hardung already had a solid career, with 25 different films and shows under his belt. Since he started his acting journey with the German short “Der magische Umhang,” he hasn’t looked back.

Before the Prime Video romantic drama aired, he also made a name for himself on the small screen with the “Red Bracelets” series. This is the German version of the Spanish megahit about a couple of teenagers with complex diseases who form bonds in the hospital where they stay.

At this moment, he has three upcoming projects on his agenda, mostly aligned with the fantasy genre. Here, check out all the details about them.

What are Damian Hardung’s next projects?

Pauline – May 22

“Pauline” is an upcoming Disney+ fantasy series set to be released on the platform on May 22. The show will consist of six episodes, all to be released on the same date as the premiere.

As its title indicates, “Pauline” will revolve around an 18-year-old named Pauline, who accidentally becomes pregnant. However, that’s not the worst part of it. The father, Lucas, is the son of the devil, and gave the protagonist supernatural powers.

According to IMDb, Damian Hardung will appear in only one episode of this series, though the role he will portray is still undisclosed.

Love Sucks – TBA

“Love Sucks” is a series created by Marc O. Seng, renowned for writing seven episodes of the acclaimed German show “Dark“. Whether this production will be available on any streaming platform in the United States has not yet been announced by the creator.

The show centers around Zelda, who has been trained as a boxer by her father and fights against any visitors to her family’s boxing ring. It’s there that she meets Ben, a sensitive and sophisticated boy hiding an unnatural secret: he is a vampire.

Damian Hardung will portray Ben, while Havana Joy Josephine Braun will play Zelda. The series is set to premiere at the Munich International Film Festival on July 1. Therefore, if it were to come to the US, we can expect it to arrive in October or November at the very least.

Fifth season of How to Sell Drugs Online (Fast) – 2025

Damian Hardung is set to reprise his role as Daniel Riffert in the upcoming fifth season of Netflix’s “How to Sell Drugs Online (Fast)”. It’s slated to have six episodes, all of which will be released on the same day, as was the case with the previous seasons.

In the series, a high school student starts selling ecstasy online from his bedroom in an attempt to win back the love of his girlfriend, who broke up with him. His venture quickly catapults him into becoming one of the biggest dealers in Europe, and the situation spirals out of control.

Hardung portrays the new boyfriend of Lisa, the girl whom the protagonist is trying to win back. He appears in all eighteen episodes that the series consists of.
