After months of waiting, Netflix has finally confirmed that production on the third season of “Blood & Water” has begun. On April 6, the streamer’s South African Instagram page shared a post announcing that “Mzansi’s coolest kids are back!”, adding, “Season 3 of #BloodAndWater is currently in production.” The post also included an early photo of some of the show’s main cast – Ama Qamata (Puleng), Khosi Ngema (Fikile), Dillon Windvogel (Wade) and Thabang Molaba (KB).
The second season of “Blood & Water” premiered in late September and ended with an explosive cliffhanger-filled finale. From the mystery behind Fikile’s father and Puleng’s unresolved love interests to a kidnapping story that ends in unanswered questions, fans are wondering what direction the South African teen mystery drama will take in season three. . With the introduction of new faces such as Sam (Leroy Siyafa), Pauline (Katishcka Kiara) and Zayd (Alzavia Abrahams), there are sure to be some juicy new scandals.
The first season of “Blood & Water” premiered on May 20, 2020, and Netflix announced its order for season two less than a month later. The second season nails teen drama tropes in a refreshingly modern way by incorporating societal and cultural undertones, also addressing the impact of technology and social media on human connection.
The show is relatable and hugely entertaining, mixing biting mystery with steamy romance and unexpected twists. Let’s hope that season 3 follows in the footsteps of its predecessors!
Netflix has yet to announce a premiere date for the third season of “Blood & Water,” but now that production is underway, the series will likely return later this year or early 2023.
