Netflix will debut its second African Original series, Blood & Water, across 190 countries, globally.
The series was announced back in 2019, pushing the envelope further for the giant streaming service when it comes to solidifying their catalogue of local content.
The cast in the series includes Khosi Ngema, Ama Qamata, Natasha Thahane, Gail Mabalane, Cindy Mahlangu, Thabang Molaba, Arno Greeff and Dillon Windvogel.
Blood & Water follows the exploits of the intelligent yet spontaneous 16-year-old, Puleng Khumalo played by Ama Qamata (My Perfect Family, Rhythm City), as she investigates the cold case of her abducted-at-birth older sister.
In the search, Puleng meets beautiful, alluring Fikile “Fiks’’ Bhele from a nearby private school, played by Khosi Ngema starring in her debut role. Thabang Molaba playing Karabo ‘KB’ Molapo, resident bad boy and high school heartthrob who is struggling to live up to his father’s high expectations.
In her on-going search, Puleng finds an ally and assistant investigator in Wade, played by Dillon Windvogel (Arendsvlei), while also having to handle the opinionated Wendy Dlamini, who at times is a bit too ‘woke’, played by Natasha Thahane (Skeem Saam, The Queen, Lockdown).
Blood & Water will debut on Wednesday, 20 May 2020 on Netflix.
