Season 2

90 Plein Street is set in South Africa’s real-life parliament and follows the personal and political intrigues swirling around Dineo Nkgatho (Warona Seane), an ANC MP trying to balance her private life, the demands of a broken family, and her party loyalty.

The character of DA MP Christo Beukes (Dan Robbertse) returns as the opposition member who locks horns with an opposition MP, S'fiso Ngema (Lindani Nkosi), from a small breakaway Pan-Africanist Party, with strong views on the land issue.

This ignites a heated relationship between the two as Christo battles to save his family wine farm from a land redistribution claim.

Finally an unlikely friendship develops as both men lose the women in their lives. S'fiso comes between Dineo and her ex-husband and former disgraced ANC Chief Whip Zweli Motaung (Mpho Joseph Molepo) who is vying to win back Dineo's affections.

Although most of 90 Plein Street is set in Cape Town, several episodes follow Dineo to her constituency in the Free State town of Parys where her mother Naledi (Connie Mfuku) lives with Dineo's daughter.

Back home, social realities of life contrast with the marbled halls of parliament and Dineo finds herself caught up between the demands of her constituents and the real limitations of a parliamentary system that is far removed from its voters.

Violence threatens when Dineo's efforts to broker peaceful negotiations between local residents of her constituency and Somali traders fail.

A painful personal experience with a Somali trader turns ugly and Dineo is forced to confront her views on legislation that affects foreigners in South Africa.

She plays a dangerous double game within her own ruling party to ensure the legislation is more people friendly.

90 Plein Street also stars Nadine Naidoo as Suraya Samuels, Mmabatho Montsho as Puleng Letsedi, Neo Ntlatleng as Oratile Motaung and Japan Mthembu as Max Mogale.
