Wang'kolota 2

Wang'kolota returns for its second season, hosted once again by actor Kagiso Modupe.

As a qualified family psychologist, he is the perfect host to lead a show where people confront those who owe them money.

This is because it's often about so much more than that – it's about broken trust and severed ties.

Not only is the guiding question on Wang'kolota whether or not people will get their money back – it also asks: can their relationships be salvaged?

In the Season 2 premiere: Patricia lent her ex-boyfriend Phillip R100,000 to help him buy property for their business.

After unsuccessfully trying to get Phillip to pay her back, she has now called Wang'kolota.

Die Byl 2

Die Byl is the story of Colonel Piet van der Bijl, a brilliant detective who specialises in catching serial killers.

His entire being is focused on life's details and the pieces of the puzzle which don't always seem to fit.

Though his personal relationships might suffer due to his obsession with his work, he would do anything for the people he holds dear.

It has been five years since we were introduced to Byl (Waldemar Schultz) and his team.

Byl is still a super-sleuth, but it turns out that he was the reason that Sergeant Juan Stuurman (Marvin-Lee Beukes) quit the unit.

After having lived with her for quite some time, his relationship with Nicki Swanepoel (Milan Murray) has fallen to pieces.

Byl and Neels van As (Tertius Meintjes) have buried the hatchet, but not for long...

Ellie Bonthuys (Barbara-Marie Immelman) has bid her days as a sensationalist journalist farewell, and is now a spokesperson for the SAPS.

The team's offices, the interrogation room and the laboratory have undergone a transformation.

Dr. Fritz Barnard (Eric Nobbs) has a new assistant, Dr. Shani van Rooi (Trudy van Rooy); meanwhile captain Lena Evans (Lika Berning) has gotten married and is now the mother of a young boy.

Carien van der Bijl (Rolanda Marais), Byl's ex-wife, also makes an unexpected appearance.

In the second season of Die Byl, once more there is a series of cases - one in every episode - which have to be solved, but this time there are also a few narrative through-lines.

Byl gets emotionally and physically confronted, with increasing frequency, when his team becomes the target of a series of inexplicable and disturbing events.

Other well-known faces this season include Wilhelm van der Walt, Jody Abrahams, Marlo Minnaar, Jana Kruger, Geon Nel, Marius Weyers, Stiaan Smith, Cintaine Schutte, De Klerk Oelofse, Illse Roos and Denise Newman.

TX Time: 22h30
Genre: Animation, Comedy

Legends of Chamberlain Heights 2

Legends of Chamberlain Heights is an urban animated series mixing raucous comedy and social commentary that centers on three high school freshman basketball benchwarmers: Jamal, Grover and Milk.

The three friends tackle life with some wins and some losses, but failure doesn't faze them since they're legends... even if it's just in their own minds.

This season Grover, Milk and Jamal are still stuck on the bench, but once the final buzzer sounds it's back to conquering the concrete by any means.

Squeenies, Trump supporters and vegans don't stand a chance as the trio gets slightly protested, largely detested and even wrongfully arrested.

The hater's finna hate, but a legend's gotta do what a legend's gotta do.

In the Season 2 premiere, "The G-Word": Hipsters gentrify Chamberlain Heights, and the Legends feel the impact at school when basketball is replaced by water polo.

Grover and Milk team up with unlikely allies to take back the 'hood.

He's also raising two adorable pre-teen daughters – the too-smart Aubrey and the silly, unpredictable Birdie.

As Kenan moves on from the loss of his wife a year earlier, his live-in father-in-law Rick (Don Johnson), his brother/manager/roommate Gary and his colourful co-workers all have strong opinions on the best way for him to live his life.

Rick was a carefree sax player when his own daughter was young and missed out on a lot of her childhood.

He's trying to make up for lost time as a larger-than-life grandad despite his penchant for getting into trouble.

Gary has long been in his older brother's shadow and he's ready to branch out on his own - with dating, business development and potentially his own place.

Kenan excels at his job with the help of his driven executive producer, Mika; and despite his ambitious co-host, Tami.

Mika can be tightly wound, especially when Gary, as Kenan's not-so-managerial manager, tries to insert himself.

She's a steady force and confidante to Kenan as he manages a demanding career and chaotic personal life.

In the Season 2 premiere, "Christmas Show": As the team prepares for the annual Holiday Spectacular, Rick attempts to unseat Tami as the leader of the band and Mika feels her work is unappreciated.

Meanwhilew, Kenan is upset when Gary pursues a new client.

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.
