Dina Shihabi Takes on Netflix

We’ll be watching

Fans of Daredevil will be surprised to see one of the protagonists featured in one of Netflix’s upcoming thrillers. Titled Archive 81, the American streaming giant is casting another regional icon in one of its first releases of the new year – and it’s Saudi actress Dina Shihabi who’ll be put to shine in the new show. 

Set to go live as soon as this January 14, the exciting news was teased through the actresses own Instagram account which received more than one accolade in the comment section


The synopsis is believed to follow Dan Turner, an archivist “who takes a job restoring a collection of damaged videotapes from 1994”. According to Netflix, Turner will be “reconstructing the work of a documentary filmmaker named Melody Pendras (as) he is drawn into her investigation of a dangerous cult at the Visser apartment building. As the season unfolds across these two timelines, Dan slowly finds himself obsessed with uncovering what happened to Melody.”.

Expected to become the earliest binge-worthy series of 2022, Archive 81 should definitely be added to your to-watch list as soon as possible to avoid any spoilers in the weeks to come.
