Netflix has elected to cancel Queen Sono after one season. The decision comes as a surprise to many as the streaming platform originally renewed the series for a second season.
“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 representative from Netflix stated.
“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.”
Vuyo Dabula, Sechaba Morojele, Chi Mhende, Loyiso Madinga, Rob Van Vuuren, Kate Liquorish, Khathu Ramabulana, Pearl Thusi and several people starred in the series. Queen Sono follows the story of a “trained top spy in a South African agency whose purpose is to better the lives of African citizens.” “Queen [searches] for the truth as her newfound need for revenge takes her on a mission across Africa. All while she deals with her family’s past and her complicated love life,” the season two description initially stated.
