The sequel to Kemi Adetiba’s movie ‘King of Boys’ will hit Netflix, the US streaming platform, on August 27.
The streaming giant broke the news in a statement to TheCable Lifestyle on Monday — three years after its prequel.
Netflix said the much-awaited sequel to the high-grossing film will debut on its platform as a seven-episode series.
‘King of Boys 1’ had followed the story of a businesswoman caught up in a power tussle and trust game that eventually threatened everything around her on account of her growing political ambition.
The sequel, titled ‘King Of Boys: The Return of The King’, sees the return of cast members like Sola Sobowale and Toni Tones. It picks up with Eniola’s triumphant comeback after a five-year exile.
However, her shocking comeback rattles the cage of her enemies — both old and new. Once-trusted allies desert her at her most vulnerable moment, all while she faces a greater battle within herself for the redemption of her tortured soul.
Makanaki (Reminisce) Odogwu Malay (Ill Bliss ), Aare Akinwande (Akin Lewis), Sade Bello ( Osas Ighodaro), Ade Tiger ( Titi Kuti), and Mumusa (Keppy Ekpeyoung) reprise their roles from the first movie.
Others are Jumoke Randle (Nse Ikpe Etim), Ifeanyi (RMD), Dapo Banjo ( Efa Iwara), Adetola Fashina (Deyemi Okanlawon), Odudubariba (Charly Boy ), and Tunde Randle (Lord Frank).
Speaking on the crime political drama, Adetiba, who produced the film, said: “When I decided to tell the King of Boys story, I never imagined it would take on a life of its own in the way it has.
“It’s been such an exciting ride from its introduction in 2018 to the Nigerian audience, and their reception was so incredible that the fans have been clamoring for more.
“I’m so honored that today, I get to share the world of Eniola Salami and King of Boys 2: The Return of the King to a global audience, but this time with the massive backing of Netflix.
“Continuing the King of Boys journey with Netflix is a big deal for me, especially as this time, it will be served to the world as a limited 7-part series”.
