Taking to social media today, Netflix dropped a trailer of the series and it already has many on the edge. The acting, storyline, and visuals are just proof that the series is bound to be a hit.

Social media users s reacted to the announcement.

"Omg! A seriously scary movie from SA! I love it already. Probably won’t sleep after watching that."
"I am so Excited For This!!!🔥🔥🔥"

Dead Places is set to take viewers on a supernatural journey as it follows a paranormal detective, Will Stone as he returns home to investigate a series of supernatural occurrences for his new book. On his journey he meets Kelly and Joe, to form an unlikely trio, on the hunt for supernatural entities. Will secretly begins his own investigation into the death of his sister, with every episode leading him closer to the truth of what happened all those years ago.

Dead Places was shot in  50 locations across South Africa including Cape Town, Johannesburg, the Cradle of Humankind, and Thabazimbi. Tumisho made Mzansi proud in 2020 after he bagged a role in an American horror thriller, Spell.  The actor starred alongside Omari Hardwick. Speaking to IOL he said he has always wanted to star in a horror film set in the US.

“I've always wanted to act in a movie set in the American South. “I love doing different accents and I've played a Jamaican and East African and a Midwestern American so, when an opportunity to play a black sheriff from an obscure part of North Carolina came about I jumped at it.

“We don't get the opportunity to do a lot of horror movies in South Africa as actors and this is a genre I have always enjoyed as a viewer and I was very keen to explore as an actor,” he said

Netflix's announcement of this new series comes just after the streaming service announced that Loyiso Gola's Unlearning, will be debuting globally on 23 March 2021 on Netflix. Gola, who will explore his own experience of maturity and masculinity during apartheid in South Africa, is the first African to have a solo full hour of stand-up comedy on Netflix and that’s not all - this is the first African original for 2021!

We cannot wait to watch it!
