Reacting to the development, ‘Queen Sono’ director and screenwriter Kagiso Lediga said: “We wrote a beautiful story that spanned the continent but unfortunately could not be executed in these current trying times.”
Queen Sono debuted on Netflix on February 28th, 2020, to much critical acclaim.
The first season was filmed in several locations including South Africa, Lagos, Nigeria, Kenya, and Tanzania. The season two would have brought back the titular character played by Pearl Thusi as she goes on more high-risk adventures as a detective.
