We’re counting down the days before the highly anticipated Netflix African Young Adult series Blood & Water hits our screens on 20 May. And if the second official trailer that dropped today is anything to go by, we are in for a wild ride!

The 6-part series, directed by power-house Nosipho Dumisa, is a gripping story of betrayal, obsession, new beginnings and old secrets. Seventeen years is a long time to look for someone, but Puleng Khumalo (Ama Qamata) may just have found the answers. We follow her on a search for her missing older sister who was abducted at birth.

The show was filmed in numerous locations around picturesque Cape Town, including Camps Bay, UCT and the Mojo market and features a fully local cast and crew.

Blood & Water premieres globally in 190 countries on 20 May 2020.
