Netflix has greenlit drama “Queen Sono,” which was the streamer’s first script to screen original production from Africa. In the second season, we will see Queen (Pearl Thusi), a South African spy with a complicated personal life, search for the truth as her newfound need for revenge takes her on a mission across Africa while she deals with her family’s past and her complicated love life. The remaining cast — Vuyo Dabula, Sechaba Morojele, Chi Mhende, Loyiso Madinga, Rob Van Vuuren, Kate Liquorish, Khathu Ramabulana and Enhle Mbali Mlotshwa — are all expected to return.
“Queen Sono” is created by South African actor, comedian and director Kagiso Lediga.
