Netflix is known to release some very intriguing series every month, and thrillers are one of the most-watched genres on the platform. Every month we either get a fascinating movie or a binge-watch-worthy series on the platform. Netflix has recently released the trailer for “Unseen,” a South African crime thriller drama. The cast is full of talented actors from the country, and the trailer looks bewitching. Let’s jump into the details of the upcoming crime thriller.
‘Unseen’ Trailer: What Is The Trailer About?
The trailer implies that somebody is on a killing spree across the city. The police officers ask a series of questions to a woman who seems to be the protagonist of the upcoming show. Further, we get to know that she is on a quest to find out more about her missing husband but unfortunately encounters violent criminals. When the officers question her about her identity, she just reveals that she is a cleaner.
People usually complain that, nowadays, Netflix gives away too much about the plot in the trailer itself. “Unseen” is different. We are left to wonder who the killer is and what will be the role of the protagonist in this show. The trailer does not give away too much about the story but also gives us a unique trailer that leaves you interested in the show. The drama is a six-part crime thriller and is produced by Gambit Films. You would be surprised to know that it is the same production that was behind the very successful global hit “Blood and Water.”
Release Date And Cast
Mark your calendars because the release date of “Unseen” is March 29, 2023. The gripping series will be streaming on Netflix, and all the episodes will be released at the same time. The series is yet to be released, but some fans of the series “The Cleaning Lady” have started commenting on how “Unseen” seems to be a copy of it. The fans have noticed the similarities between the plots of the two series and have called out the creators of “Unseen.” Will it be similar to “The Cleaning Lady”? It is too early to tell!

Then we have Vuyo Dabula, who is best known for his work in “Queen Sono” and “Shaft 6.” Alongside, we have Brendon Daniels, who is known for “Avenged” and “Sons of the Sea.” In the supporting roles, Hein de Vries and Ilse Klink will be joining the cast.
