It's not all doom and gloom after all. Mzansi actress Pearl Thusi has revealed that she received her cheque for Queen Sono, even though it didn't get renewed for a second season.
Pearl revealed this during an interview with Mzansi podcaster Mac G on Podcast and Chill.
Pearl said that she didn't know what was going to happen with the show at the time. When it was revealed that it was going to be cancelled, they paid her a cancellation fee.
"When they said Queen Sono is cancelled, I moped for like three days but we got together, had the conversation we needed to have and they gave me my cancellation fee,” said Pearl.
Although fans were disappointed that they weren't going to be seeing Pearl again in Queen Sono, they will be happy to know that she's going to be starring in another Netflix production.
Pearl is going to be in the second season of the international martial arts series titled Wu Assasins. The production is currently shooting in Thailand.
Miss Thusi has been sharing the experience of shooting in Thailand and is also undergoing extensive martial arts training to prepare her to take on a challenging role.
