Are you a Saint or a Sinner? That’s the question at the heart of the multi-generational drama Saints and Sinners returning for S2 on Sunday 10 January at 20:00 on Mzansi Magic (161).
The 13-part first season launched to great acclaim last year and its memorable moments included the tragic death of a young character whose demise devastated his loved ones, and fractured a once solid marriage.
The action escalated and culminated in a gripping cliff-hanger finale that saw leading lady, Phindi being kidnapped. Season two will pick up where the drama left off. Tune in to see the damaging consequences that this act has had on the lives of so many characters.
In this season you will also witness the sensational discovery of a long-lost father, whilst a domineering matriarch finds herself at odds with her shattered family. Along the way the contrasting elements of revenge and forgiveness, destruction and redemption, greed and sacrifice, trust and betrayal all simmer under the surface, in line with the new series tagline: A Second Season Grounded in Truths.
In confirming the second season of Saints and Sinners, M-Net Director of Local Entertainment Channels Nkateko Mabaso highlighted the appeal that well-produced drama holds for Mzansi Magic viewers, “Our audiences have demonstrated that they will continue to engage with dramatic storylines if these are well scripted and well executed, simultaneously relevant and escapist, and populated with characters who are highly believable. These were the key ingredients in the success last season and it is what will continue to fuel the viewership in season two.”
He goes on to say, “Mzansi Magic is not just focussed on launching exciting new shows but also on growing those proven properties that have delivered great value for viewing audiences. We are also pleased that we have been able to bring back the same stellar cast and are delighted with their commitment to the series.”
The cast of the series remains unchanged and includes the talents of: Thuso Mbedo (Boni Khumalo), Nthathi Moshesh (Mamohato Khumalo), S’dumo Mtshali (Ndumiso Khumalo), Tumiso Masha (Gibson Mosia), Siyabonga Radebe (Phakamani Makhoba) and Sibulele Gcilitshana (Lulama Moloiswa). Saints and Sinners is produced for Mzansi Magic (161) by Penguin Films.
