Blood And Water is set to hit our Netflix TV screens soon after Netflix called the show back.
On the Netflix’s YouTube channel, the show director made a huge special announcement today to the show cast as well as the world that she received a call from the Netflix people and they told her that they love the show so much, they can’t get enough. They told her that they are definitely renewing Season 2.
“You thought we were done? Well the Parkhurst crew will be back on your screens for another season soon. Watch as #Ama, #Thabang and the rest of the B&W fam react to the news!”- they captioned the announcement video. The cast could not hold their excitement as some were even in tears.
Blood And Water is Africa’s second Netflix Original Series after Queen Sono, that looks at the life of a Cape Town teen sets out to prove whether a private-school swimming star is her sister who was abducted at birth, after crossing paths at a party.
The show’s returning cast includes Khosi Ngema, Ama Qamata, Natasha Thahane, Gail Mabalane, Cindy Mahlangu, Thabang Molaba, Arno Greeff and Dillon Windvogel. Gambit Films will also be returning as the production team behind season 2.
“Blood & Water’s success is a testament to the hard work put in by the entire team towards expanding the African narrative in a new and exciting direction. It’s a privilege and a blessing to return to our beloved characters, as we delve further into the greater mystery and scandals of their world. Parkhurst is about to get really messy,” said returning showrunner and director Nosipho Dumisa.
Dorothy Ghettuba, who leads African Original Series at Netflix said: “We are thrilled at the joy and excitement Blood & Water has brought to our viewers around the world,” and she added by saying: “We know our viewers were left with questions and those answers await them in the second season of Blood & Water. We’re even more delighted to share our continued commitment to showcase only the best-in-class young adult stories that reflect more young people’s lives on screen, especially now in June as South Africa observes Youth Month.”
