The premiere date for Netflix’s newest EbonyLife studios partnership, ‘Blood Sisters,’ has been set.

On May 5, 2022, the screenplay for a four-part original series directed by Biyi Bandele (‘Half of a Yellow Sun’) and Kenneth Gyang (‘Oloture’) will be released worldwide.

Temidayo Makanjuola’s series, which stars Ini Dima-Okojie and Nancy Isime as the starring females, follows two friends, Sarah (Dima-Okojie) and Kemi (Isime) (Isime). Kola, Sarah’s dream man, has proposed to her (Deyemi Okanlawon).

Their seemingly ideal partnership, however, has a dark side, and despite Kemi’s outspoken reservations, Sarah is adamant about going forward with the wedding. Murder, love, treachery, and a test of friendship follow in a heart-stopping chain of devastating events.

The anticipated series, written by Craig Freimond and Zelipa Zulu, was shot in Lagos in September 2021 and is the latest collaboration after the previous year’s ‘Castle & Castle’ and ‘Chief Daddy’ sequel.

Mo Abudu, CEO of EbonyLife Studios, discusses the necessity of relaying the ‘Blood Sisters’ story: “Blood Sisters is a crime thriller, which is a new genre for us, so the prospect was challenging but very exciting! It was also a particularly unique and intense experience as we shot during the pandemic, but we remained committed to the vision we share with Netflix – to tell authentic and exciting African stories with superb production values.”

Ramsey Nouah, Kate Henshaw, Uche Jombo, Segun Arinze, and Joke Silva appear in the thriller, which also features screen favourites Wale Ojo, Gabriel Afolayan, Kehinde Bankole, Daniel Etim Effiong, Keppy Ekpenyong-Bassey, Maurice Sam, Ibrahim Suleiman, Toke Makinwa, and Okey Uzoeshi.
