If you loved the first season of South African Netflix Original Blood & Water, then you'll be pleased to know that they have started filming the second season and there are some new cast members said to shake things up for the next instalment of the popular series. 

"We’re happy to confirm that the crew are back together and working hard on set as we speak. New characters will be joining the Blood & Water cast when the series returns for a new season later this year," the PR team for Netflix SA revealed in a statement. 

We will also get to know Reece (played by Greteli Fincham) a little better in season two and will be introduced to two of her new friends


"The new kids on the block will be adding a little (extra) fire to the storyline as we see them involved in scandalous behaviour and the lives of the Parkhurst students are turned upside down."

About the new characters

Joining the cast is fresh face Leroy Siyafa, who plays Sam - a new love interest mixing things up in the Parkhurst after school scene.

"We are certain that he will be breaking hearts off the camera, but you’ll have to tune in to find out if he breaks any on-screen," the statement said.

"We will also get to know Reece (played by Greteli Fincham) a little better in season two and will be introduced to two of her new friends, Pauline and Zayd, played by Katishcka Chanderlal and Alzavia Abrahams. We’ll watch these three get up to no good, and have a great time doing so but the question is, will they get caught out?"

If you were wondering whether there'll be any cast members that won't be coming back for season 2, you can rest assured that all your favourites - including Khosi Ngema, Ama Qamata, Natasha Thahane, Gail Mabalane, Cindy Mahlangu, Thabang Molaba, Arno Greeff, Mekaila Mathys and Dillon Windvogel - will all be coming back for season 2. 

The new season is expected to come out this year.
