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. 

Deadline was the first to report her casting.
