According to Netflix’s official press release, ‘King Of Boys: The Return of The King’ will see Sola Sobowale and Toni Tones return as Eniola Salami and picks up with Eniola’s triumphant return after a five-year exile. However, this time around, her shocking, unannounced return rattles the cages of her enemies – both old and new. And once-trusted allies desert her at her most vulnerable moment – all while she faces an even greater battle within herself for the redemption of her tortured soul.

New additions to the cast include First Lady Jumoke Randle (Nse Ikpe Etim) , Reverend Ifeanyi (RMD)  ( Reverend Ifeanyi) , (Dapo Banjo( Efa Iwara), Adetola Fashina (Deyemi Okanlawon, Odudubariba (Charly Boy ) and Governor Tunde Randle (Lord Frank). The 7-part series is slated for an August 27 release date, although it is not yet known whether all the seven episodes will be released at once or over a course of time.

Speaking about the new series, Kemi Adetiba shares:

“When I decided to tell the King of Boys story, I never imagined it would take on a life of its own in the way it has. It’s been such an exciting ride from its introduction in 2018 to the Nigerian audience, and their reception was so incredible that the fans have been clamoring for more.

I’m so honored that today, I get to share the world of Eniola Salami and King of Boys 2: The Return of the King to a global audience, but this time with the massive backing of Netflix. Continuing the King of Boys journey with Netflix is a big deal for me, especially as this time, it will be served to the world as a limited 7-part series.”
