Following an action-packed debut season finale, viewers will experience yet thrilling drama in a second season of Gold Diggers, from Monday 5 September at 8PM.
In Gold Diggers 2, viewers will experience deceit, revenge and intrigue as the Gumedes strive to succeed in their new community.
“Last year, e.tv launched the 8PM telenovela slot and the audience base has grown immensely for both Ashes to Ashes and Gold Diggers,” says Marlon Davids, Managing Director of e.tv Channels Division. “The second season of Gold Diggers promises to be packed with captivating storylines that will win even more viewers’ hearts”.
Set against the backdrop of the mining industry, Gold Diggers season 1 followed ageing miner Patrick Gumede, as he took his first steps into the dangerous world of illegal mining. In order to provide for his family, he got increasingly drawn into the dark world of the ‘Zama Zama’s’. The Gumede family faced a series of conflicts, with family ties being tested, secrets exposed and the unfolding of a series of shocking events that led to the death of the family’s patriarch.
Season 2 picks up from the dramatic season-ending cliffhanger with Ronald and Lucky escaping from jail, with the help of Big Boy. As the new patriarch of the Gumede family, Big Boy forcefully uproots the entire family from the homestead and onto the dusty streets of Soweto, with the prospect of a new life. Season 2 brings more thrills, captivating drama that threatens the family’s survival and the challenges of adjusting to the new world – without crime.
