Given that Netflix recently launched the science fiction series Supacell, it appears that the superhero genre is here to stay. The show, which is directed and produced by Rapman, features Tosin Cole, Adelayo Adedayo, Nadine Mills, Eric Kofi-Abrefa, Calvin Demba, and Josh Tedeku among its cast members. It depicts the lives of five Black South Londoners who unexpectedly acquire superpowers over the course of six brief episodes.

Michael discovers that he must work with four other superheroes to save his fiancée and defeat the cloaked men who are pursuing them after he unintentionally travels to the future. The only obstacle is that the others are too preoccupied with their own issues to assist Michael because they are also unaware of their abilities.

We are aware of Rapman’s objectives from the first Supacell Season 1 episode. His goal is to produce something that recognises that Black people are more than just the individuals in the hood and doesn’t profit from their suffering. Our superheroes are brought together by the gang rivalry storyline of Tazer, despite the fact that it exists.

As a whole, Season 1 is nothing new because it heavily references the superhero genre. Nonetheless, the production’s efforts to tell this story are evident. We get to experience all facets of South London, and Black British productions are consistently guaranteed to have excellent soundtracks that perfectly capture the tone of the moment. The performers aren’t too bad either; they give their parts their all and make them come to life.

Many fans have expressed amusement at the show’s characters, pointing out that they perfectly capture how Black people respond to supernatural abilities. And it is all of that entertaining, funny, and fun. Even though they don’t receive as much attention as Rod and Andre, we have enough time to develop each character’s backstory, give them depth, and create three-dimensional personalities.

We witness their day-to-day activities, their issues, and how the superpowers can solve all of their problems. Before we reach the team leader cliché of Michael attempting to rally them all, we witness how fallible they are as humans, first attempting to use their abilities for personal gain. The best part of the first half of the episode is how these characters keep running into each other by coincidence without realising they are related.

Regretfully, that is all. Supacell Season 1 concludes on a huge cliffhanger, right before the climax. As we’ve previously discussed, authors often leave things hanging in the hopes that the studio will be compelled to renew the programme. However, what occurs if it doesn’t? We get a great programme that has just the diversity and representation we need, yet it falls short.

If the show’s framework had been changed to take into account the possibility that it would only last one season, this could have been resolved. The antagonists should be given ample room to manoeuvre in tandem with the characters as they discover their abilities and issues; they shouldn’t just sit about until episode five, at which point they’ll have to hurry to get off their backs and start acting. 

Netflix needs to go ahead and renew Supacell because a second season is the only thing that can live up to its potential and save the show.
