Season 1


Blood Psalms is a South African television fantasy drama series set 11,000 years ago in ancient Africa, where a young princess battles a world-ending prophecy to navigate her people through ancient curses, long-standing tribal vendettas and the wrath of the gods.

One thousand days after the fall of Atlantis, the five surviving tribes of Kemet face the end of the world.

King Letsha of the Akachi sacrificed his wife in an attempt to give life to the god of magic.

He learns of a prophesised end of days inexplicably linked to his newborn child, Princess Zazi.

Bokang Phelane plays Princess Zazi, a fiercely determined teenage princess who comes up against her own father as she tries to figure out her role in a deadly prophecy.

Mothusi Magano plays her father, mad King Letsha; and Zolisa Xaluva plays General Toka, the head of her father's Akachi army. 

Blood Psalms was created and produced by Layla Swart and Jahmil X.T. Qubeka from Yellowbone Entertainment, and is a Showmax and CANAL+ International co-production.

The executive producers are Yolisa Phahle, Allan Sperling, Nomsa Philiso, Fabrice Faux, Nathalie Folloroux, Laurent Sicouri, Cécile Gerardin, Ayanda Wakaba, Phakamisa George, Thabo Shenxane, Rowan Govender, Layla Swart Najaar and Jahmil X.T. Qubeka.

Music is by Teane Maseko.
