Loosely inspired by ‘Dark Desire‘ by Nayura Aragón Herranz and Leticia López Margalli, Netflix’s ‘Fatal Seduction’ is a South African thriller drama series created by Steven Pillemer that centers upon a married woman named Nandi. She goes on a weekend getaway with her best friend, Brenda, to deal with her recent miscarriage. Moreover, Nandi accidentally reads a suspicious text on her husband, Leonard’s phone, from his assistant, Ameera. During their getaway, Brenda gets her to meet with a hot guy named Jacob they spot on the beach. Although he is much younger than Nandi, they form an instant and intimate connection.
Nandi heads home the next day without Brenda, only to find out later that her friend is dead. Featuring impressive onscreen performances from a talented ensemble comprising Kgomotso Christopher, Nat Ramabulana, Thapelo Mokoena, Prince Grootboom, Ngele Ramulondi, and Lunathi Mampofu, the show unfolds in the city and the picturesque getaway location where Nandi meets Jacob. While the former serves as a reminder of how the protagonist is unhappy in the daily affairs of her life with her cheating husband, the scenic beach location reminds her how exciting her life can be.
