After the tremendous success of season one, which received two International Emmy Award nominations and won four South African Film and Television Awards, M-Net’s acclaimed local series Reyka is returning for its second season. Coming to M-Net (DStv channel 101) viewers are in for a thrilling new chapter filled with intrigue, danger, and uncharted waters.
Season two will see Kim Engelbrecht (Dominion, The Flash) and Iain Glen (Game of Thrones) reprise their roles as flawed but brilliant criminologist Reyka Gama and her former abductor Angus Speelman. The action will take place against the backdrop of the Durban Harbour, the largest port in Africa, with a new set of compelling characters in the mix.
“Reyka embodies what M-Net is all about – gripping, high-quality local entertainment that enthrals viewers,” says Channel Director: Premium Channels Waldimar Pelser. “Those with an appetite for edge-of-your-seat crime dramas are sure to be hooked again by this second season. In Reyka’s world where darkness meets danger, sometimes the only way out is through.”
M-Net has released three teasers of the upcoming season.
A shadowy figure. The ominous gleam of a pistol. Pairs of leather shoes. Season two sees Reyka and her team called to investigate as a new spate of killings grips Durban. After everything Reyka has endured in season one, will she have the mental fortitude to decipher the connections and catch a brutal new killer?
“I need to finish what I’ve done. Stick to the plan.” In the dramatic season 1 finale Angus Speelman was arrested. Has he managed to escape or is this a flashback and was there more to Reyka’s abduction than initially revealed?
If season one focused on land – who lives on it, works it, owns it, steals it, wants to poison it, and, importantly, what secrets are concealed within it – then season two will focus on water. Reyka has just started rebuilding her life, but this ominous scene hints that the danger is far from over. Who is watching? And will she ever find safety?
Reyka season 2 is proudly brought to you by M-Net and DStv – the home of entertainment. The series will be on M-Net soon. It will also be live-streamed on the DStv App, and available on DStv Catch Up after broadcast. Join the conversation on Facebook, X, Instagram, and TikTok using #ReykaSA.
