Described as a character embodying strength, intelligence, and allure, Sister Francesca’s presence promises to leave a lasting impact on the narrative. Her backstory, intricately woven into the fabric of the series, unveils her as a former love interest of the Emperor, whose return to the palace threatens to disrupt the delicate balance of power in the capital.

Originally conceptualized as “Dune: The Sisterhood,” the series draws inspiration from Brian Herbert and Kevin J. Anderson’s novel “Sisterhood of Dune.” Set a staggering 10,000 years before the events of “Dune,” the show explores the origins of the Bene Gesserit through the intertwined journeys of two Harkonnen sisters navigating the perils that endanger humanity’s destiny.

In addition to Tabu, the ensemble cast includes Emily Watson, Olivia Williams, Travis Fimmel, Johdi May, Mark Strong, Sarah-Sofie Boussnina, Josh Heuston, Chloe Lea, Jade Anouka, Faoileann Cunningham, Edward Davis, Aoife Hinds, Chris Mason, and Shalom Brune-Franklin, each contributing pivotal roles to the expansive universe of “Dune: Prophecy.”
