The trailer for KOB: The Return of the King dropped on the streaming platform on August 16. The seven-part sequel follows up on the highly praised 2018 Nollywood film drama, King Of Boys.

Netflix summarized the crime and politics-related 2018 thriller by writing:

“When a powerful businesswoman’s political ambitions are threatened by her underworld connections, the ensuing power struggle could cost her everything.”

As seen via the upcoming limited series’ trailer, the multi-part sequel will follow up on that plot.

Both the film and the upcoming series were directed by Kemi Adetiba.

CNN reports that Adetiba originally announced that there would be a KOB sequel after the first installment’s success. According to the outlet, the film made upwards of N450million ($1M) in revenue.

After patiently waiting two years following the film’s release, fans — known as the KOB Army — were overjoyed when Adetiba confirmed that its sequel was on the way as a limited series done in partnership with Netflix instead of the format of another film.

KOB: The Return of the King will serve as the streaming platform’s “first Original Series from Nigeria,” according to CNN’s coverage.
