By Pippa Raga

Good news for worldly lovers of Netflix. The streaming platform is quickly becoming global thanks to its growing international roster. With successful Australian series like Instant Hotel and Back with the Ex, as well as their impressive number of Spanish-speaking shows, the platform is well on its way to conquering the world.

February 1 will see the release of many shows on Netflix, but perhaps the most exciting one yet is Colombia's Siempre Bruja, or Always a Witch to English speakers. 

The imaginative show delivers breakout performances from some of the youngest and most talented Latin American actors. Here's everything you need to know ahead of the show's premiere.


What is Siempre Bruja (Always a Witch) about?

The bruja in pop culture is set to live on with this Colombian series that follows a 19-year-old slave and witch, Carmen, who's about to be burned at the stake in colonial Cartagena for falling in love with a white man.

With the help of an old wizard, she can escape her doomed fate. Carmen has the option to travel to a time and place where people no longer believe in witches (aka present day), on one condition: she must promise to never use her bruja powers.
