Meet Blood and Water Netflix Series Director and Writers, plus Cast: Blood and Water has all the mystery and suspense of Gossip Girl, scandalous romance of Elite, and wild secrecy of 13 Reasons Why, so it’s no surprise that Netflix South Africa’s latest teen drama has been a bingeworthy streaming sensation.

The series follows sixteen-year-old Puleng Khumalo (played by Ama Qamata) as she sets out to prove whether Pankhurst College’s star swimmer Fikele Bhele (Khosi Ngema) is actually Phumelele Khumalo, her long-lost sister who was abducted at birth 17 years ago.
