Love, lies and betrayal are the order of the day when relationship drama series It's Complicated returns for a second season in a new timeslot of Sundays at 20h00.
The first season followed Ipeleng and her long time on-off boyfriend Thatho, as well as the motley crew of friends and family in the form of Mandisa, Vumani, Thabang, Matli and Ntandokazi.
Last season ended with Thato marrying Ntandokazi against dizzying odds, and a heartbroken Ipeleng throwing caution to the wind and straying from her good girl character. And the best part? The pregnancy bomb!
The new season picks up just over four months after all the drama and truth bombs. This time, not only is Ipeleng's dogged determination to get the perfect life in the form of a marriage and children clouding her judgment, it also leads her to make a tragic error that costs her the very thing that she has always wanted.
Meanwhile, Thato and Ntandokazi's already fragile relationship isn't made any less fraught by a wedding ring. Could a couple that was on the brink of a break-up so close to their wedding survive the challenges that they - and their extended family – keep heaping on them?
Did they get married too soon? Did they do it for the right reasons? And will they see things through for better or for worse?
This season, the story also delves into Mandisa's past. As Ipeleng's rock, she's hardly had the time to deal with her own skeletons, choosing instead to bury them deep.
But a shocking and horrifying secret will come out, cracking open Mandisa's seemingly solid foundation and threatening to blow her life into a million pieces.
Season 2 features returning cast members Fikile Mthwalo as Ipeleng, Siyabonga Radebe as Thato, Atandwa Kani as Vumani, Motlatsi Mafatshe as Thabang, Thishiwe Ziqubu as Ntandokazi and Samela Tyelbooi as Matli.
They are joined by new cast members Lungile Radu as Phila, Masasa Mbangeni as Katlego, Austin Shandu as Nqobizitha and Hlubi Mboya as Dr. Patience Moloi.
It's Complicated is produced for Mzansi Magic by Kethiwe Ngcobo and Mokopi Shale of Fuzebox Productions. Season 2 directors include Maake, Myrto Makrides and Zuko Nodada and the head writer was Mokopi Shale.
