Streaming service Netflix has announced the release of its upcoming supernatural drama, The Brave Ones, set to premiere on 16 September 2022.
Written and directed by renowned actor Akin Omotoso, the six-episode series unfolds in the parallel worlds of modern-day South Africa and the supernatural world of African gods and divine beings.
The series tells the story of Ntsiki, a township girl who discovers that she is a mystical being and must harness her powers to avenge her sister’s death.
However, Ntsiki faces a powerful and determined enemy in the ruthless wife of an equally heartless land-grabbing property developer, who has her own compelling reasons for exploiting the powers of The Brave Ones. To defeat her formidable enemies and save her family from destruction, Ntsiki must learn to use and harness her superpowers.
The series stars Sthandlile Nkosi as Ntsika, alongside Nomalanga Nkosi, Zamani Mbatha, Bonko Khoza, Sthandiwe Kgoroge and Pheello Kotelo, while the legendary Yule Masiteng plays the all-knowing elder, Ndyebo.
