Netflix cancels the African Original series, ‘Queen Sono’

They normally say, ‘nothing lasts forever’, but nobody was ready for this end to come so soon. Not even the queen herself, Pearl Thusi. The over-the-top content platform and production company, Netflix has decided to pull the plug on the African Original series, ‘Queen Sono’, due to Covid-19 complications.

According to a report by channel 24, the company had to make the difficult decision not to move forward with season 2 of ’Queen Sono’. “We’ve made the difficult decision not to move forward with season 2 of Queen Sono. We are incredibly proud of the Diprente team for sharing their audacious vision and bringing it to life with Netflix. A huge thank you to our fans across the world for the love shared for our first African Original series. Netflix is also grateful to the amazing efforts shown by the cast and crew for their stellar efforts in creating this show for our members around the world. We’ll continue to work closely with South Africa’s creative industry to keep producing more compelling ‘Made-in-South Africa’ stories.” said a Netflix Spokesperson.

Lead actress, Pearl Thusi is excited for what they were able to create as a team. “It’s so incredible that we as a team got a lifetime opportunity to make history together as there will never be another ‘first’ African Netflix Original Series. I’m proud of the work we did, but everything happens for a reason. I am excited about what the future holds.”- she said.

We look forward to seeing more of her work.
