The highly anticipated second season of EbonyLife studios’ “Castle & Castle,” which debuted three years ago, will premiere exclusively on Netflix on September 15, 2021, three years after the first season aired. This season of “Castle & Castle,” which was shot in Lagos, Nigeria, is all about what keeps lawyers awake at night while they battle for justice during the day.
Richard Mofe-Damijo (Tega Castle), Dakore Egbuson-Akande (Remi Castle), Blossom Chukwujekwu (Malik Mustapha), Deyemi Okanlawon (Kwabena Mills), and Dorcas Shola Fapson (Doshima) are among the returning cast members in the second season. In addition, Bisola Aiyeola, Bimbo Ademoye, Kenneth Okoli, and Mimi Chaka are among the new cast members.
“We are tremendously excited about offering audiences the sequel to Africa’s first legal drama series, Castle & Castle, along with our partners, Netflix,” Mo Abudu said of the return of “Castle & Castle.” Season 1 captivated viewers and generated a lot of buzz on social media, and we listened to their requests for more. Season 2 of Castle & Castle is a sultry series that promises excellent drama and surprising twists and turns. Netflix is a huge supporter of African content, and I’m thrilled to be working with them on another project,” Abudu added.
The procedural legal drama is set in a thriving law firm run by married couple Remi and Tega Castle (Dakore Ebuson-Akande and Richard Mofe-Damijo, respectively). When Remi and Tega decide to represent opposing sides of the law, their marriage is put to the test, and viewers tuned in week after week to see if the marriage would survive the business or vice versa, and season two is no exception.
Netflix is investing in Nigerian films and series across all genres and for all generations, with the following already in the works: “King of Boys: The Return of the King,” “Swallow,” “The Secret Lives of Baba Segi’s Wives,” and “Death and the King’s Horseman.”
