The second season starts three months later with Van Wyk en Vennote hanging by a thread after Hans (Chris van Niekerk) retires.
Lara (Tinarie van Wyk-Loots) is so focused on getting new clients that she doesn't realise that she and Jaco (Jacques Bessenger) are drifting apart.
And the murder case Katrien (Cintaine Schutte) is busy with is threatening to ruin her life with Ben (Neels van Jaarsveld), as well as the practice's future.
The future for Corné (Beer Adriaanse) doesn't look very bright either.
Wian (Edwin van der Walt) and Anne (Kim Cloete) are trying to define what their life together looks like.
Dolf (Charlton George) makes a big decision regarding his relationship with Gertrude (Elana Afrika-Bredenkamp). Where things will end remains an open question.
Throughout the season Lara and Ben must take stock of their relationships with their loved ones and children.
Corné must decide what he stands for and justify his actions.
Hans must face retirement and Anne must decide whether she wants to remain a lawyer.
All the characters – the children included – will learn more about themselves when facing challenges.
As in the first season, there are a number of cases that present a challenge, including Ivan Nel (Armand Aucamp), who is back as a pop star who drives Dolf insane.
Divorces, cases regarding intellectual property, unfair dismissals and abuse are just a few of the problems the lawyers must face.
Two new characters join Van Wyk en Vennote this season: Lilani (Lea Vivier) is a clerk who returns after a year long sabbatical. She has always struggled emotionally and she and Corné have a dark history.
Also, Simon (De Klerk Oelofse) is a new important client.
