Three years after the first season aired, the highly anticipated second season of EbonyLife studios’ Castle & Castle is coming exclusively to Netflix on 15th September 2021.
The second season will see a mix of new and returning cast members, such as Richard Mofe-Damijo (Tega Castle), Dakore Egbuson-Akande (Remi Castle), Denola Grey (Ben Castle), Blossom Chukwujekwu (Malik Mustapha), Deyemi Okanlawon (Kwabena Mills), Dorcas Shola Fapson (Doshima), Eku Edewor (Nneka), Bimbo Manuel (Duke Castle), Daniel Etim Effiong (Mike Amenechi), Ade Laoye (Morenike Athol-Williams).
Shot in Lagos, Nigeria, this season of Castle & Castle is all about what makes lawyers lie awake at night, while they fight for justice by day. New additions to the cast list include Bisola Aiyeola, Bimbo Ademoye, Kenneth Okoli, and Mimi Chaka.
Speaking on the return of Castle & Castle, Mo Abudu, EbonyLife says:
“We are tremendously excited about bringing audiences the sequel to Africa’s first legal drama series, Castle & Castle, along with our partners, Netflix. Fans were riveted by Season 1, with a lot of talkability on social media, and we responded to their desire to see more. Castle & Castle Season 2 is a very $exy series and promises to deliver on high drama and some very unexpected twists and turns. Netflix really supports the African content industry, and I am absolutely delighted to be partnering with the streaming giant on another release.”
Castle & Castle first lit up TV screens in 2018. The procedural legal drama is set in a successful law firm run by a married couple, Remi and Tega Castle (Dakore Ebuson-Akande and Richard Mofe-Damijo respectively).
Their marriage comes under strain when both Remi and Tega decide to represent different sides of the law, and viewers returned every week to see if the marriage would survive the business or vice versa and season two is no different.
Netflix is investing in Nigerian films and series across all genres and for all generations, including much-loved hits like King of Boys: The Return of the King; Castle & Castle & Castle 2, Swallow, The Secret Lives of Baba Segi’s Wives, and Death and the King’s Horseman which are already in the pipeline.
