After a critically acclaimed first season, 1Magic will present a second season of the ground breaking telenovela, The River.

The River: 1Magic

The River is set in Pretoria and follows the lives of the Dlaminis and the Mokoenas, two families from different backgrounds that are brought together and divided by the discovery of a diamond in Cullinan, just a stone’s throw away from Pretoria.

Last season we saw how Tumi, her family and the wider Refilwe community were drawn into a web of lies and turmoil by Lindiwe Dlamini. Lindiwe has murdered, destroyed households, and manipulated, continually evading justice.

Will the scales of morality tip in the favour of those Lindiwe has wronged in her ruthless quest to build a blood-drenched empire? Will this mark the end of the villainous boss lady, as she battles for her life amid her legacy crumbling, or will the bonds of family prove stronger than Lindiwe’s transgressions?

This season we’ll also find out if Tumi will lead the Refilwe rebellion to ensure that Lindiwe gets her day of reckoning. With mounting evidence against Lindiwe and co., will this be the final nail in her coffin sealing her fate, or will she prove to have more tricks up her sleeve and define the odds?  Will a community torn apart by greed and violence finally rebuild and restore what was lost?

All the questions will be answered in the much-anticipated season two premiere of The River on 1Magic, with Sindi Dlathu, Hlomla Dandala, Moshidi Motshegwa, Presley Chweneyagae, Larona Moagi, and Lawrence Maleka.
