What Is ‘Jiva!’ exactly about?
‘Jiva!’ is an original drama series created for Netflix by Busisiwe Ntintili and Bakang Sebatjane. Scottnes L. Smith and Mandla Dube direct the series.
The plot of ‘Jiva!’ revolves around Ntombi. She is a gifted street dancer from Umlazi, a South African township. She must confront her demons and deal with family issues to pursue her dream job of dancing.
What can we expect from Season 2 of ‘Jiva!’ on Netflix?
The series’ first season depicted Ntombi’s transformation from a random struggling adolescent to a person who is just a step away from realising her dream of becoming a famous professional dancer by winning a popular league dance competition. On the other hand, her family and friends come into focus, and we eventually learn about all of her other obstacles based on personal relationships. Ntombi’s competitions are also focused on sabotaging her chances in a profession through which she can live her dream of dancing professionally.
The following season, which is the second season of this fun and energetic drama series, will expand on this plot point into perhaps five more episodes of motivating and engaging drama. We know that the team will travel to Joburg for the next stage of the dance competition. Tensions will rise, and the pressure on Ntombi will grow.
There is a good chance that new and unexpected characters will get introduced in season 2 of the TV show. Noxolo Dlamini will almost certainly reprise her role as Ntombi, along with Stella Dlangalala as Lady E, Candice Modiselle as Vuyiswa, Zazi Kunene (Nolwazi), and Sne Mbatha (Zinhle).
When will ‘Jiva!’ Season 2 air on Netflix?
The debut season consisted of five episodes; every episode had a duration of 41-50 minutes. The series is a local African production, is fun and mainly due to the strong character presence of Noxolo Dlamini, who plays the lead role as the break-out star portraying the character of Ntombi. Busisiwe Ntintili, showrunner of the series, is also a much-celebrated creator with many accolades to her name and is a popular name in the South African entertainment industry.
As far as plot expectations for the second season of ‘Jiva!’ are concerned, here’s what can happen. For the time being, Netflix has not made any official statement to disclose any details about the series’ possible renewal or cancellation. However, the growing popularity of foreign shows on the OTT giant ensures the scope of ‘Jiva!’s return for a second season. We should keep in mind that the developer of ‘Jiva!’ Busisiwe Ntintili has another hit TV show titled ‘Intersexions’ and hit movie ‘Happiness is a Four-Letter Word’ to her list of creations.
The second season will most probably have ten episodes. The episodes will be available to stream online on the series’ original broadcasting network, Netflix, just after release. The first episode will go live sometime around this year. When Netflix makes an official announcement about season 2 of ‘Jiva!’, more information about the release date and episode order will be available.
