Netflix is gearing up for the release of its second African original series, Blood & Water.
The series will premiere globally across 190 countries on the streaming service on Wednesday, 20 May 2020.
The young adult drama stars breakout actress Khosi Ngema, Ama Qamata (Rhythm City), Natasha Thahane (The Queen), Gail Mabalane (The Road), Cindy Mahlangu (The Queen), Thabang Molaba (The Queen), Arno Greeff (Binnelanders) and Dillon Windvogel (Arendsvlei).
Set in the surroundings of Parkhurst College, a prestigious inner-city school for elite scholars and academic overachievers
It centres on Puleng Khumalo, an intelligent and impulsive 16-year-old with a secret to hide. The teenager engineers her transfer to Parkhurst College in a desperate bid to investigate the 17-year cold case of her older sister’s disappearance. Abducted at birth, Fikile’s disappearance has cast a shadow over Puleng’s life, and she’s determined to solve the case.
On Monday Netflix released a trailer for the series which looks like a cross between Riverdale and the Spanish series Elite.
