Netflix has decided to cancel Pearl Thusi’s popular Queen Sono Netflix show. Pearl Thusi is widely considered to be one of the most groundbreaking African entertainers having worked in both local and international markets as an actress, host, and model.
When the news dropped that she would be getting her own Netflix show “Queen Sono”. South Africa was both proud and in awe of Pearl Thusi. Following the first season’s release, It seemed as if Pearl could take no L’s because the show had been scheduled to be renewed for a second season.
Well to our surprise, Netflix has decided to cancel the show. This means Queen Sono will not have a season two. Insider reports shared with Upweeks News and Upweeks.com have stated that the cancellation is due to challenges related to covid-19. The commentary around the show’s cancellation ranged from despair to celebration and ended in some online arguments on social media.
See a few of the tweet reactions below.
