Young, Famous & African season 2 finally has a release date! So if you’re looking forward to watching the brand-new season, make sure to continue reading to find out all the important details.

Young, Famous & African is a popular South African reality series that premiered on Netflix in March 2022. It follows the lives of a group of young, famed, and wealthy media personalities living in Johannesburg, South Africa. Viewers watch the crew of friends as they build their careers, search for love, and sometimes feud.

After a painfully long five-month wait, the show’s co-creator Peace Hyde announced that the show would be coming back for a second season through an Instagram post.

Well, there’s no need to be nervous anymore because the streaming giant has just announced the official release date and released a teaser trailer for the second season. Young, Famous & African season 2 is in fact coming to Netflix very soon, and you don’t want to miss it!
