Netflix has really focused on expanding its portfolio with foreign content in recent years. And Savage Beauty is the latest addition to the list of African Netflix shows like How To Ruin Christmas and Queen Sono. The first season hit the streaming platforms just a few hours ago. But fans have already started asking about Savage Beauty Season 2. So let’s discuss what we know about it.
Has Netflix renewed Savage Beauty season 2?
The entire first season of Savage Beauty debuted on streaming giant Netflix on May 12, 2022. However, there has been no update from Netflix or the show’s creators about Savage Beauty Season 2 yet. But this shouldn’t come as a surprise given that it was only yesterday that the first season was released.
From a story point of view, the second season seems very likely as the end of the first season was a cliffhanger. However, given its track record, Netflix will need some time before the show is renewed for Savage Beauty season 2. Fans will therefore have to be a little patient and hope that season one achieves the desired viewing figures.
What is Savage Beauty season 2 about?
In the first season of Savage Beauty, Zinhle successfully became the new face of the Bhenghu family’s line of cosmetic products. Meanwhile, after Zinhle infiltrated the Bhengu family, she was planning her next step to get revenge and started spending more time with Ndu. Towards the end of the season, Zinhle made her final move to take down Bhengu Beauty for good. This is because the relatives were busy preparing for the wedding.
The season ended with Zinhle forcing Don at gunpoint to confess to the malpractice he and his family had committed for the brand. Meanwhile, Down tried to attack Zinhle, but she threw him to the ground. Although he appeared to be dead at first, he opened his eyes when Ndu saw Zinhle drive away in a car.
When it returns with Savage Beauty Season 2, the show is expected to continue the story after the events of the first season. In the next season, viewers will see Zinhle trying to run from Don’s grasp, while also aiming to enter the Benghu family. On the other hand, there is a chance that some members of the Bhenghu will side with Zinhle.
In the cast of the African drama series, Rosemary Zimu plays the role of Zinhle. Dumisani Mbebe plays Don Bhengu and Nthati Moshesh as Grace Bhengu. The show also stars Mpho Sebeng as Bonga, Jesse Suntele as Phila Bhengu, and Nambtha Ben-Mazwi as Linda Bhengu.
We also see Oros Mampofu as Ndu Bhengu, Angela Sithole as Thando Bhengu and John Ncamane as Kolobe. There is also Tina Redman in the role of Zandi. When the series returns with Savage Beauty Season 2, most of the main protagonists will likely be back in their roles. Elsewhere, the second season could also introduce some faces to the show.
