Blood and Water Season 3 Release Date Speculation
As of August 2022, we do not know the release date of Blood and Water Season 3. Netflix officially announced on Instagram on April 6, 2022 that Blood and Water would be returning for a Season 3.
Not only that, but the streaming platform revealed that the cast and crew were already in production. The first teaser for the new season was posted on social media along with the caption, “Mzansi’s coolest kids are back! #BloodAndWater Season 3 is currently in production. Here’s your first look.”

In terms of release date, Season 1 came out in May 2020 and Season 2 in September 2021 with some delays related to the pandemic. So if we were to speculate on the news that the show was back in production in April, we could expect season 3 anytime in mid to late 2022. Watch this space. We will update you when we know.
Blood and Water Season 3 Plot Speculation
Spoilers ahead! Season 2 left fans with a lot of unanswered questions after an explosive finale ended with some pretty intense cliffhangers. The mystery around which the entire show revolved has apparently been solved. But, other deep secrets were bubbling under the surface, paving the way for new paths to be explored in Season 3.
Fans were left wanting to know more about the human trafficking ring and more about Fikile herself. A big question hanging over season 2 was the revelation that Puleng and Fikile don’t have the same father. So who is Fikile’s real father?

There was also a lot of drama surrounding Puleng’s love life, culminating in the school’s end-of-the-year dance. Puleng and Wade’s relationship has been pretty hot and cold, seemingly more turbulent when Fikile catches Puleng kissing KB in the warehouse. What will happen next with Puleng, KB and Wade’s love triangle?
In Season 2, it also became apparent that two new characters had a dark involvement in Fikile’s kidnapping. Samuel and, more importantly, his mother, Janet, appear to have a connection to the human trafficking ring and are subsequently forced into witness protection at the end of season 2. It is unclear if they will return for season 3.
