It comes on the heels of Netflix releasing teaser photo for the first Egyptian production on Netflix, Amr Salama’s Paranormal,  a mystery/horror series that is set for release in Fall 2020 and based on the late Ahmed Khaled Tawfik’s books.

Amr Diab’s latest screen appearance (if we don’t count his advertising appearances) is him starring in “Dehk Wele’b Wegad Wehob” in 1993 with the late Omar El Sharif and the iconic Youssra.

We can’t wait, can you?
