The Long Awaited Saudi Series "Takki" Returns Exclusively on Netflix

Season 3 premiers on October 28, 2021

Mohammed Makki, Director of "Takki"

My journey with Takki almost 10 years ago on Youtube, and since then the show gained wide traction in Saudi Arabia. Takki was rated as one of the most popular YouTube series originating out of the Middle East and the first Saudi drama series achieving a record-breaking number of views. Today, I am proud of the return of Takki with a new season exclusively on Netflix which will allow millions of Netflix members -whether Saudi or global audiences- to watch the show that gives insights into the Saudi youth's struggles and ambitions from different aspects.

I believe that Takki won the hearts of the Saudi audiences as it reflected authentic and realistic stories about Saudi youth and gave a look into their world. The return of Takki S3 on Netflix is considered a significant move in light of the current development that the entertainment industry is witnessing in the Kingdom.

My vision for Takki will always be the same; to tell local stories in an entertaining and dramatic setting for Saudi and global audiences. The series is a youth-centered story coming from Saudi with universal themes that anyone can relate to. Each episode features dramatic stories touching on these youth's personal struggles and sacrifices in order to reach their dreams, with an exciting plot twist at the end that will take everyone by surprise.

I am proud to have worked on a full-fledged Saudi drama show created by and starring an all-Saudi cast & crew, whose passion and dedication were the main driver behind bringing Takki back onto the screen. That's why I believe that reuniting the cast together after several years was a key factor to bring back the show on screen.

Takki S3 events take place particularly in Jeddah and portray various characters of Saudi youth and their dreams. The third season returns with Malik and Bayan, the two local creatives who are struggling to achieve their long life dreams. This season brings high production value, character development, intense drama in 8 episodes that will keep the audience hooked until the end. I am hoping that Takki will meet the audience's expectations and satisfaction.

Takki S3 will be released exclusively on Netflix on October 28, 2021. The series will be available in 190 countries around the world and available in over 32 languages, and will have audio and written descriptions for disabled individuals.

Starring: Moayed Althagafi, Khairiah Abulaban, Ali Alsharif, Hind Alsaigh, Adel Radwan, Redwan Al Reemi and Qusay Khedr.

Director: Mohammed Makki

Produced by: U-turn Entertainment Co.

Authors: Hisham Fadel (Episode 1 and 4), Hani Kaador (Episode 2 and 3), Manar al-Otaibi (Episode 2 and 3), Rulan Hassan (Episode 5 and 6), Rana Atufa (Episode 7 and 8), Mohammed Makki (Episode 7 and 8)


Following a stint behind bars, Malik returns to a modernizing Jeddah and a booming film industry, with a script detailing what really went down in 2015.
