Netflix has been churning out original movies and series like crazy in the past couple of months ... and it's showing no signs of slowing down as the streaming giant has unveiled the trailer for one of their newest (and weirdest) upcoming offerings yet: The Discovery.

Directed by Charlie McDowell (Silicon Valley) from a script by Justin Lader (The One I Love) and McDowell, The Discovery boasts a stellar cast that includes Rooney Mara, Jason Segel, Riley Keough, Jesse Plemons and none other than the great Robert Redford himself.

Set to a background of Roy Orbison's classic "Only the Lonely," the trailer features only one line of dialogue from Jason Segel, who says: "People are just gonna keep killing themselves." 

Wait, what?

That line is explained by the movie's intriguing synopsis (since the trailer doesn't give away too much of the plot -- there's just a lot of weird stuff going on that only gets weirder as it progresses), which reveals that people have now discovered proof that yes, Charlie Brown, there is an afterlife:

One year after the existence of the afterlife is scientifically verified, millions around the world have ended their own lives in order to 'get there.' A man and woman fall in love while coming to terms with their own tragic pasts and the true nature of the afterlife.

The Discovery will premiere on March 31 on Netflix.
