Netflix today announced the release of its upcoming supernatural drama The Brave Ones, launching this Spring, on 16 September 2022.
Created by renowned film director, writer and actor Akin Omotoso, the captivating six-episode series unfolds in the parallel worlds of modern-day South Africa and the supernatural world of African gods and divine beings.
Ntsiki Gasa (Sthandile Nkosi) is a mystical being reincarnated as a human who sets out to avenge her sister’s death. However, Ntsiki faces a powerful and determined enemy in Ayanda Mbatha (Nomalanga Nkosi), the ruthless wife of an equally heartless land-grabbing property developer, Luthando Mbatha, Tony Kgoroge, 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.
Breathing life into the diverse and dramatic characters of The Brave Ones are the actors Bonko Khoza, Zamani Mbatha, Pheello Kotelo and Sthandiwe Kgoroge. The legendary Yule Masiteng delivers a powerful act as the all-knowing elder, Ndyebo.
