Sibongile Mlambo will star as a black mermaid in upcoming Freeform drama, 'Siren'

Our black mermaid dreams are really coming true!

Zimbabwean actress Sibongile Mlambo has been cast in the upcoming Freeform drama, Siren. 

The series, which will be an hour-long and have a ten-episode first season, will be set in a fictional coastal town called Bristol Cove, which is known for its legend of being home to mermaids.

When a mysterious girl comes to down (Eline Powell) and proves this legend is true, it turns into a battle against man and sea as the mermaids, described as "predatory" fight to reclaim their ocean.

Mlambo will play Donna, described as a " mystifying and deceptively powerful mermaid."

She previously had a recurring role in Black Sails and is currently recurring on Teen Wolf.
