Netflix's latest series has already become the talk of the town - and we can really see why.

Now when it comes to movies about superpowers, we've seen pretty much everything there is to see until we were graced with Netflix's latest show Supacell.

Watch the trailer below:


Created by Andrew Onwubolu MBE, AKA Rapman, a British rapper and record producer, Supacell follows the story of a group of seemingly ordinary people from South London who unexpectedly develop superpowers.

The show, which has been described as "action-packed," has already landed a perfect score on Rotten Tomatoes, and as more and more people tune in to watch it, the reviews only get better and better.

It's apparently so good that people are binging the entire first season in one night.

"...I put one episode of Supercell on Netflix and these times, I won’t sleep until the whole season is done. If you don’t know, get to know. Unbelievable series," wrote one user on X, while another added: "Supercell is the best thing on Netflix right now! Top boy kicked the door open and #supercell has taken it to another level. Big up @RealRapman and all the cast a crew who executed this quality project. Excited for season 2."

A third also had a raving review, writing: "Supercell on Netflix is a certified hit. One of those shows where everything is connected in someway and you’ll never guess what’s happening next."

This X user wrote: "Just started #Supercell on @Netflix, black folks with super powers SAY LESS."

And this person had another reason why everyone should be tuning in...

"#Supercell on netflix is mad good. I hope they come out with a second season. the black men on there were fine," they commented.

Hey, it's a win-win.


So that's what the people are saying. Are the critic reviews also similar? Short answer: Yes.

Leila Latif of the Guardian gave the series a high four-star rating, complimenting the cast line-up for carrying the narrative.

"...Given how compelling and charming this cast is, there will be plenty more battles in the future. They didn’t choose their powers – or to save the day – but when a show is this much fun it’s extremely good news that their powers chose them," Latif wrote in her review for the outlet.

Variety's Aramide Tinubu also agreed, referring to Supacell as "bold" and "daring."

"Though the excitement of supernatural abilities and the magic of science fiction ripple across the show, the series also explores major themes that disproportionately affect Black people, including human trafficking, extreme surveillance, pervasive global anti-Blackness, and predatory medical practices," Tinubu stated, later going on to credit the portrayal of "Black love" which is often misrepresented on screen.

Supacell is now available to watch on Netflix.
