Blood & Water on Netflix
To quickly recap the first season of Blood & Water, the drama series tells the story of a Cape Town teen. All her life, her parents have told Puleng about her missing sister. In fact, she was abducted at birth by a human trafficking ring. Puleng attends a party, hosted by Fikile, a popular student at Parkhurst College in Cape Town. At the party, Wade, one of her friends, realizes that she and Fikile closely resemble each other.
This leads Puleng to start believing that Fikile could be her sister, kidnapped by a human trafficking ring at birth. Now a student of Parkhurst herself, Puleng secretly has DNA tests done to prove whether Fikile is, indeed, her missing sister. In the cliffhanger at the end of Season 1, Puleng reveals to Fikile that they are related.
Synopsis of Season 2
Season 2 is set to pick up where it left off at the end of the first season of Blood & Water. Ama Qamata returns as Puleng Khumalo, while Khosi Ngema once again stars as Fikile Bhele. Following the results of the DNA test, revealing whether Fikile is Puleng’s missing sister, the drama is set to increase. In fact, the DNA test turns out to be only the tip of the iceberg.
According to Netflix’s synopsis, Blood & Water Season 2 is full of entanglements, lies and a constant source of breakups, makeups and drug deals. On top of that, Netflix assures viewers that all of the new characters are “arriving with a spoon, ready to stir the pot.”
