Calling 2022: Shahid’s best Egyptian productions
Apart from the annual Ramadan rush for Egyptian series, Saudi streaming service Shahid has been entertaining the entire Arab region with Egyptian series throughout the year. From drama and comedy to suspense and thrillers, 2022 witnessed a diversity of Egyptian series produced by Shahid. To wrap up this eventful year, here are our favorite and highly recommended Egyptian Shahid productions in 2022.
With a mix of action and comedy, Ahmed Malek plays the role of a drug dealer who is forced to work to pay off his debts. As events unfold, he finds himself investigating the murder of a woman and the disappearance of another woman.
Although the first episode aired on December 21, 2021, it signaled a promising start to 2022, especially since it was the first appearance of popular Egyptian rapper Wegz.
I wish w Dahr (Front and back)
This ten-episode series revolved around Eyad Nassar and Riham Abdelghafour in roles unlike any they’ve ever played. A combination of drama, romance and a touch of comedy, the story revolves around two main characters, each hiding their own secrets. When Nassar steals money from his company and starts a fake medical career, he hires a nurse who also turns out to be keeping secrets, and their lives change.
The Beit Beity (The house is mine)
Horror is not a common genre in Egyptian series. But this show is different. From the first episode, the comic duo Karim Mahmoud Abdelaziz and Moustafa Khater combined laughter with horror and caught the attention of the audience. In the series, Khater travels to Cairo to settle his inheritance; little does he know that this journey will reveal many chilling adventures.
A new season of The Beit Beity will arrive soon
Mawdo ” Aaely (A family matter)
As the name suggests, this ten-episode family drama was a favorite of many Egyptians because of the warm and cozy family stories and laughter involved. The series revolves around Maged El Kedwani, who becomes the legal guardian of his estranged daughter for a six-month life-changing experience.
As expected, the second season of Mawdo ” Aaely started last week. Thursday’s weekly episodes take place two years after El Kedwani bonds with his daughter and the hiccups she has to deal with.
As soon as Shahid released trailers for Room 207, it attracted millions of fans even before the series itself had aired, especially since it is based on a novel by the late Egyptian author Ahmed Khaled Tawfik. Topping Shahid’s most watched charts, Room 207 is a combination of horror, thriller and suspense. In the series, Mohamed Farrag, a new hotel receptionist, tries to solve the mystery behind a particular room with soul-changing experiences.
Ever since the last episode of the first season was open-ended, there have been rumors that there will be a second season.
