Netflix has dropped the first teaser for its upcoming South African teen drama, Blood & Water. It is the streaming giant’s second script-to-screen original series, following Queen Sono. The Cape Town-set series is from award-winning South African director Nosipho Dumisa (Nommer 37).

The official description: At Parkhurst College, a prestigious inner-city school for Cape Town’s elite scholars and academic overachievers, we’ll follow the exploits of the intelligent, proactive and impulsive 16- year-old Puleng Khumalo, as she engineers her transfer to the school to investigate the 17-year- old cold case of her abducted-at-birth older sister she’s never met.

 The series stars Khosi Ngema, Ama Qamata, Natasha Thahane, Gail Mabalane, Cindy Mahlangu, Thabang Molaba, Arno Greeff and Dillon Windvogel.
