“What has changed since then? Richard returns home after spending time in prison. With no money and no influence, he gets back into business with the hope of turning his life around and away from crime. There is a new lady at his side, but is she all she pretends to be? Is she the saviour he is looking for or will she wreak havoc in his family and the community, putting all that they have worked so hard for at risk?”

The channel promised that the upcoming season will be filled with “high action, forbidden love, a string of murders and secrets that need to remain hidden at all costs.”

SABC2 channel head Gerhard Pretorius said they are immensely proud to bring the second season of Giyani to viewers in South Africa.

“Building on the success of Giyani Season 1, Season 2 returns with more drama, intrigue and an action-packed storyline that will have viewers glued to their screens. Not only can viewers look forward to seeing their old favourite characters back on their small screens, SABC is delighted to announce that the talented and much-loved Rami Chuene joins Season 2 of Giyani; life will never be the same again in Giyani for sure,” added SABC2 programme manager Jacqui Hlongwane. 

“Tshedza Pictures is beyond thrilled to revisit the story world of Giyani – Land of Blood and the amazing characters that viewers fell in love with – including new characters who will capture their hearts as the new season is packed with scandal, drama and dangerous escapades that will entertain and enthrall the viewers,” added Tshedza Pictures’ Phathu Makwarela and Gwydion Beynon.
