Fatal Seduction is a new Netflix original series created by Steven Pillemer. Pillemer is best known for co-creating the South African drama series The Brave Ones, which is streaming on Netflix.

It’s based on the popular Mexican Netflix series Dark Desire and follows a married woman who spends a weekend away from home with her best friend only to end up having a passionate affair with a younger man that leads to tragedy and betrayal involving those in her inner circle.

Additionally, the show takes place in Cape Town, South Africa. It was also filmed in the beautiful city. So, who plays the protagonist? What about the other characters? Find out below.

How many episodes is Fatal Seduction on Netflix?

There are a total of 14 episodes in the first season of the thriller series. However, there have been only seven episodes released so far. Unfortunately, we don’t have a release date for when the next set of episodes will be released, but we’re hoping we’ll see them by the end of 2023. We’ll make sure to share the release date once it’s announced.

Fatal Seduction parents guide and age rating

The thriller series is rated TV-MA, meaning it’s meant to be viewed by mature, adult audiences only. Given what the show is about, a TV-MA age rating makes sense. It was given this age rating for strong language, sex, smoking, substances, and violence. Overall, we wouldn’t recommend watching this show with young kids around.
