A drama about a secret agent who fights crime while dealing with crises in her personal life.
Queen Sono spy-thriller is written by South Africa’s Kagiso Lediga and starring Pearl as the main actress alongside the likes of Vuyo Dabula, Chiedza Mhende, and Kate Liquorish, which premiered February 2020 and received a good round of applause across the board.
According to OkayAfrica and other movie review sites, the first season of Queen Sono was “undeniably” explosive.
“The audience was introduced to Queen Sono, a secret agent for the Special Operations Group (SOG). We gradually began to understand her relentless quest to find the person that killed her political activist-mother and the forces which wanted to keep the truth buried for as long as possible,” OkayAfrica.
The publication further reports that the story arch involving Russian heiress Ekaterina Gromova (Liquorish) and the pan-Africanist rebel Shandu (Vuyo Dabula), is admittedly far more gripping than that of the main character. Adding to Mhende’s fierce portrayal of Queen’s boss Miri, and it’s hardly surprising that the production is confirmed to return for its second season.
The streaming platform also announced that Gangster’s Paradise: Jerusalema is also hitting Netflix on May 1st, 2020.
