Netflix has released the official trailer for season two of the South African crime fantasy series, ‘Kings of Jo’burg’ ahead of its release.
The first season premiered in 2020, with a total of 6 episodes. The drama series delves into legacy building, fragmented family structures, treacherous brotherhoods, and the effects of crime and African masculinities on families and society.
