Star Thabang Molaba validated on Instagram on 3rd March that the production of the second iteration has concluded. So, according to this, we won’t have to wait long to see the second season.
How Will Blood And Water Season 2 Plot Be?
During the beginning season, Puleng and Wade enormously inspect Fikile’s history and put efforts to find some link amid her and Puleng’s lost sister. At the last of season 1, Fikile figures out that Puleng has been following her for a long time. Initially, she thinks that she is doing so in order to degrade her but later Puleng reveals the reality before her. It’s quite tough for Fikile to trust these talks of Puleng and now she will be hoping that she isn’t correct.
Simultaneously, her wealthy guardians as well as KB’s dad will enter the army so that people don’t become aware of their earlier illegal child peddling works. Even though there are sufficient proofs to verify that Fikile is Puleng’s sibling Fikile will go for a DNA test to clarify Puleng’s remarks. In the conclusion, as Fikile has stayed her whole life off from her real mom-dad, she will face hardships to accept this reality. Concurrently, she will also consider the people fake who nurtured her during this time.
