‘Blood and Water‘ has become Netflix’s second African Original after the success of Queen Sono. Both series were ordered in 2019 as part of Netflix’s efforts to broaden their content and expand into new markets. Africa had been in the works for a long time.
The teen drama only has 6 episodes on the first season which has left a lot of viewers asking if there is going to be season 2 of the hit show from South Africa.
Netflix has not yet confirmed Season 2 of the show as it usually takes about a month to 2 months for the streaming service to make a decision on the life of a TV Show. This time gives them a clear understanding of how viewers are reacting to the show looking at its engagement rates over a month.
However, in as much as we are waiting for the official announcement from Netflix, the show seems to perform well better than the first Netflix African Original Queen Sono which was released 3 months ago as Blood and Water hits the number 1 spot in the US and other several countries.
It took 1 month for Netflix to officially announce the renewal of Queen Sono Season 2. Netflix has tended to renew its first shows from a country for multiple seasons, and as the show is only the second original series from South Africa on the streaming platform, it is likely that it will be back.
When is Blood and Water Season 2 coming?
Again, since there is no official announcement from Netflix, we are working with history. Seeing as season 1 was released on May 20, 2020, and Netflix tends to operate in yearly cycles with series, there’s a good chance that the series could be back as soon as Spring 2021 if it gets renewed.
That being said, due to the Coronavirus outbreak halting production on many series, it’s possible that filming on Blood & Water season 2 could be delayed severely. We shall keep you posted with any updates.
