Fans of Fauda (2015– ) can finally hit Netflix today for a brand new crime series from the same creators: Rough Diamonds (2022), about a Jewish Orthodox family in Antwerp. All episodes can be seen on the streaming service starting today.
The series follows the Wolfsons, a prominent ultra-Orthodox Jewish family within the world-famous Antwerp diamond industry. When their youngest son takes his own life, his long-estranged brother Noah – who turned his back on his faith and found a new home in London’s criminal fraternity – returns to Antwerp and discovers that the family business is on the brink of collapse and under the spell of the local mafia. While Noah desperately tries to save the Wolfsons’ business and protect the family’s legacy and honor, he and his siblings must first settle their own internal battles.
