“Best thing I’ve seen on Netflix in a long time.”

Netflix‘s new series Supacell has rocketed up the most-watched charts and is sitting pretty at #2 on the Irish charts at the time of writing.

The sci-fi superhero series, which is being described as ‘Top Boy meets Misfits’, revolves around a group of five ordinary people from South London who unexpectedly develop superpowers.

“It is down to one man, Michael Lasaki (Tosin Cole, Doctor Who), to bring them all together in order to save the woman (Adelayo Adedayo, The Responder) he loves,” the plot synopsis reads.
