Blood and Water Season 3 Renewal Status

However, we are pretty sure that Netflix will renew the series for a third season. Besides that, the series was also hailed as the Best TV drama at the 2021 South African Film and Television award. Keeping that in mind, we are pretty sure that the streaming service will renew it for another season. We are waiting for an official announcement.

Release Date

The second season of the popular TV drama was released in its entirety on Netflix on September 24, 2021. However, as the drama is not yet renewed for a third season, we don’t have any release date yet. Netflix usually takes a month or two to renew any series for a new season. Well, if everything goes well, we might hear the renewal announcement before December this year. Henceforth, we can expect Blood and Water Season 3 sometime in late 2022. We can only assure something when there is an official announcement from the creator’s side.

Expected Cast


If Blood and Water Season 3 happens, we expect to see the following cast:

  1. Amamkele Qamata as Puleng Khumalo
  2. Khosi Ngema as Fikile Bhele
  3. Dilion Windvogel as Wade Daniels
  4. Thabang Molaba as Karabo Molapo
  5. Arno Greeff as Chris Ackerman
  6. Greteli Fincham as Reece Van Rensburg

Apart from these major characters, we expect to see some old and new faces as well.

Blood and Water Season 3 Expected Plot

In the first season, we saw Puleng and his family heading for a DNA test. Later in the series, we also come to know that Puleng and Fikile share the same mother, but not the same father. However, this comes as a great shock to both the teenagers. Lisbeth kidnaps Fikile’s mother and interrogates more about Puleng. At the end of the series, the cops take Fikile from the party without spilling out the season. Blood and Water Season 3 is more likely to focus on the love triangle between Puleng, KB, and Wade. Moreover, we will also come to know why is Lisbeth enquiring so much about Puleng. Besides that, we might also get to know about the kids’ biological father.
