Rockville returns for a new season with several new faces joining the cast, for yet more compelling homegrown drama.
Among the newcomers is Clint Brink (Scandal!, Generations, Backstage) who takes the role of Trevor, as well as one of SA's sexiest men and entertainment all-rounder, Masego "Maps" Maponyane who plays TK.
Also joining the cast this season is accomplished actress Tango Ncetezo (iNkaba, Wild at Heart, A Place Called Home) as Peggy; veteran actor Owen Sejake (Yizo Yizo, Ke Nake, Soul City, Zone 14, Fallen) as Cassius and model/actress Stephanie Schildknecht as Janet.
Along with Brenda Ngxoli (Gladys), Nandi Nyembe (Gogo - Dudu's Bogatsu mother) and Lerato Zah Moloi (credited as Lerato Haji) playing Tumi, they join the Ferguson power duo and Rockville regulars - Trevor Gumbi, Mbali Mlotshwa, Bonnie Mbuli, Lehasa Moloi, Thembsie Matu and Boity Thulo – to deliver edge-of-the-seat drama to Mzansi Magic viewers.
Season 2 gets underway with the lives of the Mabaso and Bogatsu families on a knife-edge following the shooting of Jackson "JB" Bogatsu (Shona Ferguson) by Mavis Mabaso (Connie Ferguson) at the end of Season 1.
Whilst JB is fighting for his life on the surgeon's table, Mavis battles her own demons as she confronts the terrible reality of what she has done – shooting the man her daughter, Lindi Mabaso (Mbali Mlotshwa), loves, while Mavis' son, Oupa (Lehasa Moloi) moves mountains to save his mother from jail time.
Season 2 again sees Ferguson Films work with series producer and television veteran Bobby Heaney. The central theme for Season 2 revolves around the spoken and unspoken obligations within families.
Do the sons and daughters bear the sins of their mothers and fathers? That is the question that viewers will have in mind when they watch the drama unfold.
Rockville is produced by Ferguson Films with Bobby Heaney as series producer. The executive producers are Connie and Shona Ferguson, director is Johnny Barbuzano and the series is written by Phathutshedzo Makwarela and Gwydion Beynon.
The theme music was composed by Psyfo and the score was by Joel Assaizky.
