5 Must-Watch Arabic Shows for Ramadan 2023

With drama shows, cultural programmes, and light-hearted comedy shows – Arab entertainment has been showcasing the depths and talent of the Arab World.

But even though contemporary Arab audiences in the United States have shown their enthusiasm for Arab shows and programs during the holy month of Ramadan, they have struggled to have access to high quality regionally produced Arab shows live and On-Demand.
