Season 2

It's two years after the explosive events of Season 1 and President Mulaudzi (Florence Masebe) has won a second term - but only at considerable sacrifice.

This season follows the aftermath of the kidnapping of President Mulaudzi and a coup attempt amidst genuine citizen unrest.

Mulaudzi might have cleaned up her cabinet (or has she?) but the country is still in a state of chaos, with protests, riots and power outages being the norm.

How will she fix it, and who will stand in her way?

The second season focuses on two beautiful young South Africans who have felt all too personally the failure of government, as they strike back against the corruption that is eating away at the country.

They become a modern-day Bonnie and Clyde, embraced by social media and South African society at large.

Can they give South Africans new hope in a dark time?

The two new young leads are played by Lemogang Tsipa (Isithembiso) as Sizwe and Noxolo Dlamini (Isibaya) as Thina.

Reprising their lead roles for Season 2 are Florence Masebe as President Mulaudzi and Masasa Mbangeni as Bridget.

Joining the cast this season are Bonnie Mbuli (Traffic!), Bongile Mantsai (Grootboom & Sons), Thembi Nyandeni (Isibaya), Tsholo Mashishi (The River) and Chichi Letswalo (Isithembiso).

The Republic is produced by Tshedza Pictures. The creators, head writers and executive producers are Phathutshedzo Makwarela and Gwydion Beynon.

Original music is by Brendan Jury.
