When will Netflix release Savage Beauty Season 1?
On Thursday, May 12, 2022, at 12:00 a.m. PT/ 3:00 a.m. ET, Netflix will release Savage Beauty Season 1 worldwide.
The Netflix drama’s first season consists of six episodes. We don’t know how long each episode will be, but we’re aiming for more than 30 minutes to make up for the lack of episodes.
What can we expect from Savage Beauty’s debut season?
Zimu stars as Zinhle Manzini, a model with a terrible history who is the face of Bhengu Beauty, a well-known cosmetics brand, in the Netflix original series. The proprietors of the beauty industry, Don and Grace Bhengu, ask Manzini to live in their lavish estate, where she becomes embedded not only in the company but also in the ranks of their incredibly private family, irrevocably scarring her.

Don's daughter from his previous partner. She is the apple of his eye. Needless to say, Grace hates that. Cinderella and the evil stepmom situation. She is Phila's rival to run Bhengu Beauty in the future until…🙈 #SavageBeautyNetflix pic.twitter.com/WbcxzrCrsG
But, unbeknownst to them, Manzini has a plan to expose the Bhengu family’s secrets, destroying both the company and the family in the process. However, this causes harm to innocent people, making Zinhle’s retribution purpose difficult and perplexing. In her desire for vengeance, she must act quickly before the family finds her actual identity.
Netflix’s official synopsis for Savage Beauty states,
“A mystery woman seeks vengeance for her tragic past by assimilating into a prominent family with a global beauty empire – and hidden secrets.”
In the stunning trailer released by Netflix last month, we were exposed to an intriguing scenario. Zinhle is introduced as the new face of Bhengu Beauty in the video. As a result, she moves into the family mansion, which is filled with horrific mysteries. A strange voice can be heard stating,
“You’ll grow accustomed to it.” Even the Queen of B*tchiness.”
The family quickly realises that they are being followed by an unknown insider who is an enemy in disguise. Zinhle, enraged, says at the end of the clip,
“He has to survive to see us demolish everything he cares about.” Don and Grace’s days are numbered if we succeed. This is just the start.”
