The series debuted on Netflix on February 28, 2020, and it received acclaim from the critics for the story, acting and direction. It the first original South African series of Netflix. Now fans are waiting for more episodes and asking if they get a second season or not. So here’s what you should know about it:
Here’s good news for everyone, as Netflix already renewed the series for a second season. The renewal news appears in just some months and Netflix gave the green light to the new season as the series received good ratings and loved by the audiences around the globe.
Head of African originals at Netflix, Dorothy Ghettuba, said at the time of the announcement of season 2 that through Queen Sono, the African stories are introduced to the world. Then Ghettuba added that ‘we can’t wait to view what they have in store for Queen Sono in this coming season.’
We have to wait for the second season for a bit longer as the shooting is not plausible at this moment of coronavirus outbreak. Netflix has already stopped filming on various projects for safety reasons. The streaming giant already stopped filming on projects like The Witcher Season 2, Stranger Things Season 4, Red Notice, etc.
As per the sources, we can expect for the second season to arrive about late 2021 or early 2022.
These stars will surely come back in the new season of Queen Sono: Pearl Thusi as Queen, Vuyo Dabula as Shandu, Khathu Ramabulana as William, Kate Liquorish as Ekatarina, Enhle Maphumulo as Nova, Loyiso Madinga as Fred, Sechaba Morojele as Dr Sid and Chi Mhende as Miri.
Unfortunately, there are plot details for season 2 as nothing is revealed by the creators of the series.
