After over a year of waiting, Netflix has finally announced a November premiere date for “Blood & Water” season three. The streamer released a date announcement trailer on Oct. 26 teasing what new drama our favorite Parkhurst High students will encounter in the upcoming season, promising new blood, deeper waters, and the same friends.
On April 6, Netflix’s South African Instagram page shared a post announcing that “Mzansi’s coolest kids are back!,” adding, “#BloodAndWater season 3 is currently in production.” The post also included a first-look photo of some of the show’s main cast — Ama Qamata (Puleng), Khosi Ngema (Fikile), Dillon Windvogel (Wade), and Thabang Molaba (KB).
Season two of “Blood & Water” premiered at the end of September 2021 and concluded with an explosive finale packed with cliffhangers. From the mystery behind Fikile’s father and Puleng’s unresolved love interests to a kidnapping storyline that ends with unanswered questions, fans are wondering what direction the South African teen drama-mystery will take in season three. With the introduction of new faces such as Sam (Leroy Siyafa), Pauline (Katishcka Kiara), and Zayd (Alzavia Abrahams), there’s sure to be juicy new scandals.
“Blood & Water”‘s first season premiered on May 20, 2020, and Netflix announced its order for season two less than a month later. Season two nails the teen drama tropes in a refreshingly modern way by incorporating societal and cultural nuances, also touching on how technology and social media impact human connection.
The show is relatable and wildly entertaining, mixing nail-biting mystery with steamy romance and unexpected twists. So hopefully season three follows in its predecessors’ footsteps!
