Get ready for some festive cheer (or not) as Netflix announces that How To Ruin Christmas season 2 is set to launch on the streaming platform on the 10th of December 2021. The highly anticipated second season promises more all too familiar family drama, more laughs and more unsolicited monologues from Tumi as the families embark on celebrating Christmas together. 

This season picks up a year later and ALL your burning questions will be answered - are Tumi and Khaya finally dating? and how has life been for the blissful newlyweds Beauty and Sbu since their move to London? Since the gang has finally made peace with each other, they expect to enjoy a quiet, intimate Christmas celebration, but things quickly go pear-shaped as an unexpected occurrence shakes both families and sees them banding together to make the most of a very unfortunate situation. 

Creator, Rethabile Ramaphakela spoke about the second season, saying, “Off the back of season 1, we know the audience wants answers so now, they will finally get them as we invite everyone back into the lives of the Sellos and Twalas. How to Ruin Christmasseason 2 will still bring that chaotic but relatable family drama with everyone’s favourite black sheep, Tumi Sello, at the centre of it all. We have some new faces joining the cast as well as a big twist that will have you reaching for your tissues. We are so proud that, together with Netflix, we are able to spread some Christmas cheer once again in true South African style”.

The series features a star-studded cast including the likes of Thando Thabethe, Clementine Mosimane as Dineo Sello, Yonda Thomas as Khaya Manqele, Sandile Mahlangu as Sbu Twala, Motlatsi Mafatshe as Themba Twala, Saint Seseli as Vusi Twala, Charmaine Mtinta as Valencia Twala, Rami Chuene as Aunt Grace, Trevor Gumbi as Siya Twala, Nandi Nyembe as Gogo Twala, Desmond Dube as Uncle Shadrack, Busisiwe Lurayi stars as Tumi Sello and Keketso Semoko as Aunt Moipone.

The first season was set against the backdrop of Beauty’s Christmas Wedding, Tumi Sello, Beauty’s older, troublesome sister’s shenanigans came to life, quite literally after ruining her sister’s well-thought-out wedding. From the inappropriate ‘drunken’, Malome Shadrack, to judgemental aunties, resentful siblings, and closely guarded family secrets, the three-part series offers up hilarious tropes that families the world over can relate to.

The first season of the show became a huge success and viewers have been waiting for this announcement. Another Netflix original show that did well is Kings of Joburg. The show was produced by The Ferguson after they inked a deal with the international streaming service.

The 6-episode series follows the exploits of the two Masire brothers, who are involved in organized crime. They are the titular ‘kings’, and the show explores themes of family structures, loyalty, crime, and African masculinity. There are also elements of the supernatural and the occult. Connie Ferguson plays a role as a mermaid in this one.
