7 Egyptian Shows to Watch During Ramadan 2023

7 Egyptian Shows to Watch During Ramadan 2023

Few things bring people together like the holy month of Ramadan, where over iftar gatherings and late night suhoors, Egyptians gather around discussing the overflow of mosalsalat (TV series) which range from refreshingly light-hearted to melodramatic shows.

Arab television channels air one episode of each Ramadan show every day for 30 days, often after Ifar, keeping people who lounge in front of their television after a long day of fasting on the edge of their seats.

In the past few years, viewers opted to stream Ramadan shows—largely to avoid the lengthy commercial breaks—and for lack of access to Arab TV channels. For viewers in the United States of America who have often had to struggle to access shows back home or from the region, there’s a simple solution: Sling Arabic TV. Sling Arabic TV is the leading provider for Arabic live streaming and on-demand channels in the United States, offering the largest lineup of Ramadan series every year, including in 2023.

Here are some of the most anticipated Egyptian television shows that will be available to watch this Ramadan.
