Savage Beauty synopsis

The story follows a woman named Zinhle Manzini, who after suffering from a tragic past, sets out on a journey to find and exact revenge on the wealthy and powerful family that caused her harm. But while in the process of getting revenge, innocent people are harmed, making Zinhle’s mission for revenge tricky and complicated.

Here’s the official synopsis via Netflix Media Center right below:

"Fifteen years ago, Don and Grace Bhengu tested a toxic product on a group of children living on the streets. Now one of the two survivors, Zinhle Manzini, returns to seek revenge. Zinhle becomes the invisible force that exposes family secrets, leading the Bhengus down a path of destruction. But innocent people get hurt along the way, while Zinhle’s own darkness threatens to consume her. Zinhle has to decide whether she wants justice or pure, cold revenge."

Savage Beauty parents guide and age rating

Savage Beauty is rated TV-MA, so only mature audiences should be watching the series. It was given a TV-MA rating due to content being shown in the show that many parents would consider inappropriate for younger kids. Some of the inappropriate content includes violence, strong language, alcohol, and sexual content. As a result, the drama series may not be suitable for kids ages 17 and under.

Check out the thrilling official trailer to get pumped for the show’s release on Netflix!

The first season consists of six episodes total. It’s unknown how long each episode will be, but we’re hoping they’re over 30 minutes long to make up for the short episode count.

Savage Beauty is coming to Netflix on May 12 at 12:00 a.m. PT/3:00 a.m. ET. Will you be watching the drama series?
