Blood & Water is a 2020 South African Netflix original drama series.

The story follows student Puleng Khumalo (Ama Qamata). She lives in the shadow of her sister Phumelele, who was kidnapped as a baby. Puleng transfers to an elite school Parkhurst College in an attempt to find answers.

The first season was released on 20 May 2020. It has been renewed for a second season.


Blood & Water provides examples of the following tropes:

  • Interclass Friendship: At Parkhurst, Puleng finds a friend group in Fikile and some other students.
  • Long-Lost Relative: Puleng *thinks* Fikile is her long lost sister, and there are hints to back it up.
  • Privilege Makes You Evil: This appears to be the conclusion Puleng is coming to at the end of the season as she realizes most of the wealthy are in on Phume's kidnapping.
  • Scholarship Student: Puleng's middle class background and relatively normal school are no match for the wealth and elitism she finds at Parkhurst.
