Netflix has premiered the official trailer for Kunle Afolayan’s Yoruba language series, “Anikulapo: Rise of the Specter,” a spinoff from the successful film “Anikulapo.” The four-part series is scheduled to begin streaming on March 1, 2024.


The recently released video, unveiled on Tuesday, Jan. 30, 2024, offers a sneak peek into the unfolding narrative of the epic series. “Anikulapo: Rise of the Specter” seamlessly picks up from where the movie left off, following the life journey of Saro and his wife.



Akala, the enigmatic bird responsible for resurrecting Saro (Kunle Remi) in the initial installment, returns to the storyline, though its motives appear less amicable than anticipated. The series promises to delve into profound themes such as betrayal, revenge, and the relentless pursuit of ultimate power.


Under the direction of Kunle Afolayan, the stellar cast includes Adebayo Salami, Layi Wasabi, Moji Afolayan, Aisha Lawal, Ronke Oshodi, Jide Kosoko, Adeniyi Johnson, and Funky Mallam.
