Ukraine President Volodymyr Zelensky’s “Servant of the People” Returns to Netflix

Maybe this isn’t the biggest or most important news, but Netflix is bringing back a show with ties to the current unlawful Russian invasion of Ukraine. Specifically, Ukraine President Volodymyr Zelensky‘s “Servant of the People.”

It’s an interesting choice, to be sure. But it’s also timely. Maybe this is Netflix’s attempt to help Americans better know who Zelensky is?

“The series is a comedy but also an important document of where Zelensky comes from,” Nicola Söderlund of Eccho who licenses the series, said. “His fictional president is a normal man, who grows into his role as a heroic and adored leader. While the real-world scenario facing Zelensky and the Ukrainian people is far more grim and appalling than the comedy of the series, there are obvious parallels with the real-world situation, and Servant of the People is a fascinating, important and historic piece of television.”

Catch “Servant of the People” on Netflix now.
