We’ve all heard Jinn stories and how they have affected everyone who came across these supernatural powers. All the horror movies/series lovers will love it and it’ll attract them but people with weak hearts should be prepared. What makes Jinn different from other shows is that it’s not only the first Middle Eastern series but also the first series that is featuring teens in the Middle East. According to a report in The Mary Sue, Rajeev Dassani said, “Creating Netflix’s first Arabic Original, and one of the first teen-focused shows ever from the Arab world, has been an unforgettable experience. We’ve had so many local teens tell us they’ve never seen themselves accurately represented on screen, and it is both our pleasure and our responsibility to bring that to them and, in doing so, showcase all that the region has to offer.”
