Country Queen is the first Netflix series developed in Kenya. It premiered on the streaming site in July. As soon as it was aired, the show made history and now fans are concerned about its renewal. The amount of information related to this how is very limited for now, however, we have culled some information, and here's everything we know so far about the next season.
At the time of penning this article, no details have been revealed from Netflix's side. But we know that Netflix has increased funding in Kenyan media to show the real issues and elevate the country's image. Hence, the future of the show definitely seems positive. Netflix is known for taking a few months before they reveal the renewal status of any show, hence it's too early to say anything regarding its second season.
The first season followed the story of Akisa Musyoka, who goes beyond the stereotypical boundaries set by the patriarchal society. The Nairobi event planner lives a double life due to the circumstances. Capitalism attacked the village she lived in and harmed everyone living in it. Akisa not only has to deal with her dire straits but her past traumas keep coming back to trouble her. The story of the show concluded in a way that feels somewhere like a conclusion and yet it has potential for varied storylines for another season. The decision is entirely on Netflix and we hope that it's in fans' favor.
The official synopsis of the show reads,
A Nairobi event planner returns to her village after 10 years, where she confronts her past — and a mining company that threatens to destroy her home. Set in contemporary Kenya, it is a family drama series that tells the story of ordinary Kenyans fighting against a corporate power that threatens to destroy their homes and lives.
We saw how Akisa went to her father's grave and she is still sort of depressed, anxious, and confused about his actions. The first part did leave some questions unanswered, fans desperately want to know what happened with the relationship between Kyla and Anna.
The cast includes Melissa Kiplagat, Melvin Alusa, Nini Wacera, Blessing Lung'aho, Sheila Munyiva, Raymond Ofula, Mumbi Kaigwa, Muthoni Gathecha, Eddy Kimani, Abu Sensei, Nice Githinji, Joel Othukho, Oliver Litondo, and Brian Kisau.
The second season of the show has not seen any trailer release as of now. There is no official confirmation whether the show will be renewed. However, here's the official trailer for the show's first season.
