About the Show

Queen Sono is a South African action spy thriller television series created by Kagiso Lediga which follows Queen Sono (Pearl Thusi), the highly trained top spy in a South African agency whose purpose is to better the lives of African citizens.

The hard-partying spy, assisted by her cohorts from a covert peacekeeping organisation, uses her lethal skills to keep the continent safe from terror while she contends with continual post-traumatic stress and an inconvenient sex addiction by self-medicating with drugs and alcohol.

After the assassination of her mother, Queen grows up to become a kick-ass yet unconventional spy devoted to protecting the people of Africa.

During a dangerous field assignment, Queen unknowingly uncovers shocking details about her mother's death, sparking her own truth-finding mission.

Queen Sono is Netflix's first script-to-screen, fully produced African original series with an all-African cast and crew.

The series was in production for over eight weeks and was shot in 37 different locations across Africa, including the Johannesburg CBD, Sandton, Park Station, Soweto, Lagos, Kenya and Zanzibar.

There are diverse languages throughout the series, including English, Afrikaans, isiXhosa, isiZulu, Russian and French.

The series also stars Vuyo Dabula as Shandu, an ex-spy who has taken a different path; Sechaba Morojele as 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; and Khathu Ramabulana plays Queen's childhood friend, William, now in a relationship with Enhle Mbali's character, Nova.

Abigail Kubeka plays Mazet, Queen's beloved Gogo, who has always supported Queen - no matter the trouble she gets herself into.

Queen Sono was created and written by Kagiso Lediga and produced by Netflix and Diprente with executive producers Tamsin Andersson and Kagiso Lediga.

The series was written by Karabo Lediga, Camilo Saloojee, Christopher Steenkamp and Muzi Dlamini; and directed by Kagiso Lediga and Tebogo Malope.

Music is by Zethu Mashika.
