Streaming platform, Netflix has announced the return of Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy's one of the most popular shows ‘Servant of The People’ on the platform.

According to a report in India Today, the streaming platform in a recent Twitter post announced the new development.

According to the Hollywood Reporter, Netflix had the show in its library from 2017 to 2021. It has now returned. This show, however, is only available to Netflix US subscribers. There are three seasons in it. It was written and directed by Zelenskyy, who also starred in it. Olena Zelenska, the President’s wife, is one of the show's screenwriters.
In a classic case of fiction preceding reality, Zelenskyy plays Vasyl Petrovych Holoborodko, an absent-minded high school history teacher who is elected President of Ukraine after one of his students records his profane rant about corruption in the country and uploads it to YouTube, making him an Internet sensation.
Against his wishes, Holoborodko's students launch a crowdfunding campaign for his presidential candidacy in Ukraine, which ultimately propels him to victory.
