Kings of Jo’burg Season 2 Plot
The series’ official synopsis as per Netflix states, “The Masire brothers rule Johannesburg’s criminal underworld, but a supernatural family curse and a tangled web of betrayal threaten to destroy them.” For the second season, Collider highlighted that the new season paints as one wherein there is very little chance for error, something big is coming and time is running out for the Masire brothers. The trailer shows a pair of men filling in what appears to be a grave in the middle of nowhere in the dead of night, their voices grave and ominous in the background.
Mogomotsi “Mo” Masire (Zolisa Xaluva) has sleepless nights because his dreams are tormented by memories of a past he once had but lost. Our first glimpse of the supernatural threat the Masire face is a young man standing with his eyes glowing light blue. We also see scenes of a takedown in a garage, two menacing stares, a woman leaning into a car via a window, and other ominous images. Mo is sitting in a car, worn out when we hear a voiceover instructing us to “do not hold back.”
Despite being under significant emotional stress, while under the watchful eye of the law, Mo is not perturbed to stop ruling the streets and everyone is aware. “Masire is making his move,” a voice says. Of course, he is. You don’t rise to such heights by sticking your neck out. Mo is shown gearing up his team for action, there is a standoff beneath a bridge but then we see the cowries, the voodoo, and the dark magic carried out by a lady behind beaded curtains.
