We are going to be really honest. We had no idea what to expect when we heard that Netflix was creating Jinn, the first ever show from the Middle East. That’s a lot of pressure for one show to have.

But 24 hours ago, the trailer dropped and we are gob smacked. In fact, we are freaking excited.

The trailer looks good.

Genuine, normal, everyday Arab teenagers (with a little teen angst of course), relevant, contemporary issues melded in with Arab myth, culture, fantasy and sci-fi. Could you ask anything more from a show?

We got a lot of that, with just the right does of suspense from the 56 second long trailer. And we can’t wait to see more.

Jinn, which will is due for international release on June 13, revolves around a group of high schoolers from Seven Hills Academy, who after returning from a trip to the ancient ruins of Petra unknowingly bring back a vengeful jinn with them.

Jinn is is produced by Kabreet Productions and is directed by Mir-Jean Bou Chaaya and Amin Matalqa.


It’s up to the group of friends, who are going through their own issues like teenage romance and testing the boundaries of each other’s friendships to fight of the evil jinn who is determined to cause chaos in the high schooler’s lives.

Despite the clichés of sci-fi shows getting rid of a menacing supernatural villain being, well not super easily, but with some ease – the table are turned when you’re dealing with a Jinn that is blurring the lines between good and evil blur.

Like we said Jinn is the first Middle East Original series by Netflix and the cast (we are so happy to report) are all Arab.

Salma Malhas, Hamzeh Okab, Sultan Alkhail and Aysha Shahaltough will play the lead roles the show is produced by Kabreet Productions, directed by Mir-Jean Bou Chaaya and Amin Matalqa.
