All four lead cast are returning for Season 2: The Feather Awards’ Hunk of the Year Thembinkosi Mthembu (Outlaws, Shaka iLembe and The River) as Bonga, Nhlanhla Kunene (The River, Lavish) as fan-favourite Eric, Thabiso Rammusi (The Suit) as Mpho, and Luthando BU Mthembu (Big Brother Mzansi) as Vuyani, who recently won the Best Dressed On Screen Personality Award at the GQ Best Dressed 2023 Awards. 

Breakout star Londeka Sishi is also returning as Nkanyezi, while new cast members include SAFTA nominees Samkelo Ndlovu and Thembi Seete (Gomora), not to mention Gaisang K Noge (The Wife) and Nomalanga Shozi (Rhythm City).
