Netflix’s keen interest in the African market has seen the video streaming giant acquire a slew of previously released African films and TV shows over the last year. Netflix has also released original acquisitions, including Genevieve Nnaji’s directorial debut, “Lionheart”, and Mati Diop’s award-winning film, “Atlantics”. Its latest African release is Kagiso Lediga’s “Queen Sono”, the first original African series commissioned and exclusively released by Netflix.
The trailer for “Queen Sono” was released last month, and it hinted at an action-packed show. The first season of the series, which stars South African actress Pearl Thusi as its lead, is now available for streaming, only on Netflix. The season comprises six episodes, ranging between 31minutes and 47minutes per episode. Although “Queen Sono” is a South African endeavour, it boast a pan-African tilt with scenes shot in several countries including Kenya, Nigeria and Zanzibar.
