KykNET renews ‘Diepe Waters’ for season two

KykNET’s first telenovela, Diepe Waters, will be renewed for season two, with the first episode playing on Monday (October 2), that’s directly after the final episode of season one

Viewers who were anxiously waiting to hear if kykNET’s first telenovela, ‘Diepe Waters‘, will be delighted to know that the second season of the epic next chapter of star-crossed romance, action, scheming and drama is airing soon.

‘Diepe Waters‘ is a telenovela and unlike a soapie, there is always an end to the story. But Gys Swarts (Justin Strydom) and Zelda Joubert (Sandi Schultz) are far from finished with their ongoing war and dirty tricks. And will Jacques ever be able to call one of his children his own?

The first episode of ‘Diepe Waters‘ aired in October last year, and it has kept viewers buzzing ever since. No one will forget the faces of the Swarts family when Gys introduced his new wife, Meghan (Lea Vivier), to them. It took a long time for the community to get used to it, and then the bombshell dropped – Meghan and Gys’s nemesis, Zelda, had been working together all along.

Pam (Tracey-Lee Oliver), Zelda’s daughter, had been looking for her biological father for some time. Zelda played all sorts of games with Pam to keep her big secret. But Gys realised Pam was his biological daughter, and Zelda’s world was turned upside down. Poor Rossouw (Altus Theart) still can’t get used to having an older sister.

The Swarts family, however, had some more skeletons in the closet. Turns out, Johan (Liam Bosman) is not Sanet (Nadia Valvekens) and Rossouw’s biological child but Jacques’s (Werner Coetser). And now poor Meghan is pregnant with Jacques’s child, and he has to watch from a distance once again how other people raise his child.

But one thing is guaranteed – the tension, drama and tears will not stop in season two. Sanet finds new love. Gys and Zelda’s battle rages on with new family secrets coming to light. Rossouw decides to hit the road, and a sudden death leaves everybody reeling.

“Viewers’ response to Diepe Waters has exceeded our wildest expectations since the new telenovela launched in October 2022. Gys and his family, his companions and enemies became like family. This is a storyworld of business savviness but also errors of judgement, love and betrayal, growth and setbacks. We are so happy that viewers are glued to their screens. The story only gets juicer from here,” said Waldimar Pelser, M-Net director of Premium Channels.

And with a new season comes new faces. The legendary Vinette Ebrahim joins the cast. She plays Valencia, Lettie’s (Stephanie Baartman) mother. Ryno Hattingh has already made his appearance, but in season two he’s in the thick of it. Ryno plays Riaan Vermaak, Meghan’s father and also Pam’s new boyfriend. 

Eric Bouwer, who is known for his roles in ‘Egoli‘, ‘Binnelanders’ and ‘Getroud met Rugby‘, are joining the cast Reverend Ben van Staden, Sanet’s new love interest.

“We are delighted to be able to create a second season of Diepe Waters as a result of the resoundingly positive response from viewers to the first season. We are blessed with a wonderful team of industry professionals who put their all into the show to make it the success that it is,” says Roberta Durrant, creative producer of the show.

Following directly after the final episode of season one and will begin on Monday October 2, 2023, the reality series is set to build on the popularity of likes of ‘The Real Housewives of Qqeberha‘, as well as kykNET’s Die Real Housewives van Pretoria, starring headline-making Tammy Taylor Nails SA owner Mel Viljoen

The 200th episode of aired last week, but it’s not too late to catch up on season one. All the episodes are available on Catch Up as well as DStv Stream.
