Netflix Announces Its First Afrikaans  Series Starring Acting Icon Arnold Vosloo

Arnold Vosloo is Daan Ludik in Netflix’s first Afrikaans title series set to launch on 26 August 2022.

Netflix’s first Afrikaans series Ludik is set to burst onto screens globally on 26 August 2022. The racy, action-packed six-part series features South African-born Hollywood actor Arnold Vosloo (Silvertone Siege) in the titular role of Daan Ludik alongside local heavyweight talents Rob van Vuuren (Swys de Villiers), Diaan Lawrenson (Anet Ludik) and Zane Meas (Brigadier Davies). 

The series revolves around Ludik, who appears to be a salt of the earth oke, styling himself as a wholesome family man running a successful furniture business. However, behind the veneer of respectability,  Ludik is steeped in the underworld that sees him crossing paths with mobsters and murderers. With his family in turmoil, jail time on the horizon and death imminent, Ludik must rely on both his old and new allies to prevail and save his everything.

“Maximum woes (chaos) is what ensues,” says Rose and Oaks Media, the producers and brainchild of the series led by Anele Mdoda, Paul Buys and Frankie Du Toit. The series mixes some knuckle-busting action, OTT Afrikaans humour and loads of twists from start to finish.
