Far From Home

First Teaser and Photo of Nigerian Netflix’s Young Adult Series “Far From Home”

Netflix has announced the launch date of its first Nigerian young adult show titled “Far From Home”. Produced in partnership with Inkblot Productions, the five-part series concluded principal photography earlier this year and is primed for a December 16, 2022, global release.

“Far From Home” follows the story of Ishaya (Mike Afolarin), a charismatic teenager and talented artist from a poor family whose dreams suddenly appear within reach when a prestigious scholarship to the most exclusive school in the country catapults him into the affluent world of Nigeria’s elite. All the while, a huge secret threatens Ishaya’s newfound status and, ultimately, his family’s safety.

The series is a Nigerian coming-of-age story set in three different worlds and showcases how people of different socio-economic statuses can co-exist. It tells the age-old story of talent vs opportunity, where talent is evenly distributed but opportunity is not. Each of these worlds has its own story to tell and Ishaya shows all sides to us.

“Far From Home” blends an exciting ensemble of up-and-coming talents and established screen legends and stars the likes of Richard Mofe-Damijo, Funke Akindele Bello, Chioma Akpotha Bimbo Akintola, Femi Branch, Ufuoma Mcdermott, as well as Deyemi Onkanlawon, Adesua Etomi-Wellington, Bolanle Ninalowo, Bucci Franklin, Linda Ejiofor, and Carol King.

Mike Afolarin, Elma Mbadiwe, Genoveva Umeh, Gbubemi Ejeye, Olumide Oworu, Natse Jemide, Ruby P. Okezie, Emeka Nwagbaraocha, Raymond Umenze, Tomi Ojo, and Moshood Fattah are part of the vanguard of rising stars.
