Season 2


It's the start of the new school year and the violence that engulfed the school the previous year has been contained.

Basic security has been established.

The new principal has achieved a level of order and stability.

She is also determined to nurture learning and developing standards. But she can't do it alone.

Supatsela High struggles to find its right path and learns along the way that education is not only about passing exams.

It's also about nurturing young lives and grappling with the many problems that learners face - hunger, drugs, indifference, cruelty and violence.

It's about working together to make a difference.

Season 1 awakened the South African public to the reality and problems facing students and teachers in the majority of South African schools.

Research conducted across four provinces showed that Season 1 succeeded in breaking a cycle of ignorance and denial among parents and provided a critical platform for young black South Africans to have their experiences reflected and addressed.

With the advent of Season 2, psychological and emotional dialogues could now be explored against an established landscape, as a relationship of trust with the audience has been cultivated.

The series was given the permission to push the limits. Say the unsaid. Show the unseen.

The vital kwaito music of the township was used not just as a soundtrack, but as part of the dialogue with the audience.

Long before Yizo Yizo there was a voice reflecting the joy, anger and hope of young people. Kwaito music.

Yizo Yizo embraced the spirit and energy of that voice and introduced it to television drama.

Yizo Yizo was created by Teboho Mahlatsi, Peter Esterhuysen, Harriet Perlman, Mtutuzeli Matshoba and Angus Gibson and Season 2 is produced by Bomb.

The producers are Angus Gibson and Desireé Markgraaf.
