Airdate: Queen Sono


Netflix’s first scripted African series, Queen Sono is described as an action-packed drama following a highly trained top spy in a South African agency whose purpose is to better the lives of African citizens.

After the assassination of her mother, Queen Sono grows up to become a kick-ass yet unconventional spy. During a dangerous field assignment, Queen unknowingly uncovers shocking details about her mother’s death, sparking her own truth-finding mission.

Queen Sono stars Vuyo Dabula as Shandu, an ex-spy who has taken a different path. Sechaba Morojele plays Dr. Sid, director of the SOG, with Chi Mhende, Loyiso Madinga, and Rob Van Vuuren, playing agents on his team. Kate Liquorish plays Ekaterina, heiress of an oligarch family with ulterior motives. Khathu Ramabulana plays Queen’s childhood friend, William, now in a relationship with Enhle Mbali Mlotshwa’s character, Nova. Abigail Kubeka plays Mazet, Queen’s beloved Gogo, who has always supported Queen – no matter the trouble she gets herself into.

Friday February 28 on Netflix.


  1. ‘Shadow’ was on Netflix last year, about a black policeman who has a life threatening condition and works during his spare time as an armed equalizer for money to pay for an expensive medical procedure.
    I presume this was a South African production, it had some good stunts and worth a look too.
