Queen Sono Review 2020 Tv Show Series Season Cast Crew Online
Stars: Pearl Thusi, Vuyo Dabula, Loyiso Madinga
This week, Netflix chief content officer Ted Sarandos and a team of executives have been traveling through the African continent, meeting with local creatives, as part of an aggressive content expansion into areas that are still relatively untapped sources of talent. Sarandos is doing so as the streaming giant’s first African original series, the spy-drama “Queen Sono,” is released worldwide February 28.
As a series created entirely by Africans, with a majority African cast and produced on a Netflix budget, “Queen Sono” is certainly a novelty that will likely draw audiences for that reason alone. But, in the long run, with a second season very likely — given how the first season ends — it’ll need to rely on more than its landmark arrival in order to stay relevant and stand out in a world awash with content.
The series stars South African actress Pearl Thusi (“Quantico”) as the title character, a James Bond-like operative who takes on dangerous missions while contending with personal struggles and various relationships. The African continent is both her charge and playground. She’s a member of a seemingly small and besieged South African intelligence unit called the Special Operations Group (SOP), tasked, somewhat unrealistically, with protecting the country and the entire continent from any kind of threat, including terrorism, corruption, and European neo-colonialism.
But Queen is certainly up for the task, dashing from one African country to another by air, land, and sea, nurturing ties, collecting necessary intel, and fending off some really mean dudes, all with a sometimes immaculate style.
Queen is, of course, skilled with a variety of weapons and stands virtually unmatched in hand-to-hand combat. She is beautiful, sensual, efficient, and reckless — at times taking risks that roil her supervisors — but what movie or television super spy isn’t known for going rogue once in a while (not to mention the rest of these attributes)?
