Will Blood & Water Come Back For a Season 3 After All of Those Cliffhangers?
Blood & Water season two recently premiered at the end of September and concluded with an explosive finale packed with cliffhangers. With so many loose ends, there’s already fan anticipation for Netflix to announce season three of the South African teen drama-mystery.
The seven-episode second season of Blood & Water concluded with a number of cliffhangers. From the mystery behind Fikile’s father and Puleng’s unresolved love interests, to a kidnapping storyline that ends with unanswered questions, this recent season left viewers wondering what’ll happen next. Although there’s much potential to continue these plots in a third season, Netflix has yet to announce if a third installment is in the works or not. However, based on the past timing, that announcement may come soon.
Season one of Blood & Water was released on May 20, 2020, and Netflix publicized their order for season two a month later on June 15, 2020. With that being said, there’s a likely chance that fans of this Parkhurst group will hear from Netflix about season three towards the end of October 2021.
Now if a new season were to premiere, it will likely explore a few of the plot points that were incorporated in the show’s most recent season. We could potentially see more of the tension between Fikile and Puleng, and their respective romantic relationships (or lack thereof) with Chad (Ryle De Morny) and KB (Thabang Molaba). Additionally with the introduction of new faces such as Sam (Leroy Siyafa), Pauline (Katishcka Chanderal), and Zyd (Alzavia Abrahams), there’s sure to be juicy scandals involving these new characters.
Season two nails the teen drama-mystery tropes in a refreshingly modern way by incorporating societal and cultural nuances, and touching on how technology and social media impacts human connection. The show is relatable, but wildly entertaining because it mixes nail-biting mystery with steamy romance and unexpected twists. Hopefully a potential third season also follows in its predecessor’s footsteps!
Should season three of Blood & Water be announced, it’s uncertain the exact date in which it would air on Netflix. There was over a year between season one and season two premiering, but that extended gap was likely a result of pandemic-induced production delays. With that in mind, there’s potential for us to have our third installment available to binge sooner than later, should it be renewed!
