Second Family S2
Picking up from where Season 1 left off, the cutthroat struggle for the control of the lucrative milling company, EAGC, continues, with the stakes even higher than usual as an old patriarch rises from the dead. On the other hand, the Syndicate, made up of businessmen who run the country, make even more bold moves to secure their interests.
Leo’s (played by Ian Mbugua) absence has wreaked unimaginable havoc on his family and friends. His eldest Tehi, fresh out of jail, contemplates his next step as the head of the Gatehi-Lang’at family after walking his sister Gigi down the aisle. Gigi, having just pledged her life to her father’s protege, Cyrus, hides a scandalous secret.
Shei, now aware of her heritage, looks to hide the truth from her family. On the other hand, Sinde is now at the helm of EAGC and is ready to unleash her wrath on the Gatehi- Lang’ats who she blames for her misfortunes.
When tragedy strikes, Leo, the man who set off this chain of events, returns from the ‘dead’. Soon, his family and friends realise that they are not dealing with the man they once knew, and they must navigate new family dynamic and vicious succession battles where victory belongs to only those willing to get their hands dirty, and when needed, bloody.
Dora Nyaboke returns as the ever devilish Evangeline, Nick Ndeda as the drunkard Gatehi-Lang’at black sheep Tehi, Brian Ogola as Evangeline’s ambitious partner-in-crime Cyrus, Vanessa Okeyo as Leo’s once-likely-successor Sinde. Also making a comeback in season two are Mumbi Maina as Katherine, Stephanie Muchiri as Gigi, Brain Abajah as Joel, Serah Wanjiru as Shei, Lewis Leshan as Bett, Florence Nduta as Dora, Derek Bbanga as Kiilu, Joyce Musoke as Lizzy, Sheila Ndanu as Dr. Masinde and Mary Mwikali as Carole Marie.
Second Family S2 is produced by Live Eye TV, and directed by Edwin Kamau (Crime and Justice) and King Muriuki (Igiza, Faithless).
