The South African hit crime series eHostela, is coming back to our television screens for the second season and it is going to be lit, as we will also be seeing new faces on the show.
Well known and award-winning actors, Dumisani Dlamini and Mduduzi Mabaso will be joining the show as the new leaders of the Brotherhood when the secret society of hitmen finds itself under threat from a new sheriff in town. Celemba and AK are new kingpins at the helm of the Brotherhood with targets on their backs as Mndeni (Thobani Nzuza), comes to town and finds himself caught between a rock and a hard place.
Mndeni has to make a hard decision of whether to rejoin the notorious hostel gang as an ally or as a police informant as Captain Moloi, played by Lockdown actress Linda Sebezo, closes in on the eHostela’s most feared gang.
Mndeni returns a year later trying to find a sense of belonging having left the Brotherhood. He moves to Delinkani hostel in Johannesburg where he joyously reunites with his old buddies 2Litre and Vovo, but this soon reminds him that he is alone and without any family.
The Director of Local Entertainment Channels at M-Net, Nomsa Philiso said: “The new season of eHostela will give fans a new plot twist of love, betrayal, police informants and more executions in this crime thriller that sent chills down their spines in the first season. We are especially excited to give a platform to this drama series that has a great casting and exceptional African storytelling, which shines the spotlight on lived experiences of some of our viewers.”
