The From Cape to Cairo collection will feature Netflix’s latest African series, Blood Sisters (Nigeria) and Savage Beauty (South Africa) — both launching in May — and many other stories that showcase the continent’s creativity and talent.

The collection also includes:

  • Silverton Siege
  • Man of God
  • Senzo: Murder of a Soccer Star
  • Young Famous & African
  • Finding Ola, Paranormal and Secrets of The Saqqara Tomb
  • Queen Sono, Blood & Water

To further celebrate African talent across the continent, Netflix is launching a new podcast entitled Never Late | African Time, featuring its on-screen and behind-the-screen talent like Nox Dlamini, Jayan Moodley, Retti Ramaphakela, Jesse Suntele, Daniel Effiong, Nancy Isime, Ini Dima Okojie and Kemi Adetiba as they share their experiences around diversity and inclusion in the creative industry.
