Abomama returns for a second season of turmoil, drama and suspense as Tshidi, Fumane, Mapule and Dora deal with the consequences of their actions.
Khabonina Qubeka replaces Khanyi Mbau this season as Tshidi, the unhappy wife of a doctor who is dealing with infertility and an unstable marriage.
She joins original cast members Joyce Skefu (Fumane), Nokuthula Ledwaba (Mapule) and Unati Guma (Dora) as the women of God who find themselves drawn into a world of organised crime.
After they find a stash of stolen cash, they are forced to use their stokvel to launder money for the "real" owner of the stolen loot, Bonanza, played by Kenneth Nkosi.
This season, the women try to move on with their lives following the murder of Bonanza.
But they are forced back together when a naked, young woman mysteriously arrives on the steps of Hope of Glory Church.
Mapule sees the appearance of the woman, who has amnesia, as an opportunity for them to find redemption for their past deeds; while Raki (Masechaba Moshoeshoe) is instantly doubtful of the woman.
Mapule takes the woman in, names her Amogelang and nurses her back to health, but soon it becomes evident that there is more to her than meets the eye.
Once again, their actions find them drawn back into the world they so desperately want to escape.
Lumka, who was played by Nozuko Ncayiyane in Season 1, will now be played by Busisiwe Mtshali.
Shot on location in Soweto and Ferndale, Abomama is created and produced by Parental Advisory Productions, based on an original concept by Zaba Leroto Hlatshwayo.
The executive producers in Season 2 are Thomas Gumede and Lungile Radu. The series producer and head writer is Khobi Ledwaba.
The music score is by Zethu Mashika.
