“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 sexy 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.”

“Remi and Tega Castle’s marriage is put to the test in Season two more so than ever. A host of disputes crop up that affect their work and their inter-personal relationship. This season, the series tackles a lot of issues prevalent in contemporary African society. It will dare you to judge! I am proud of this production and very excited that it will premiere again on Netflix.” Richard Mofe Damijo says on the new season.
Dakore Akande continues “My character ‘Remi Castle’ is a brilliant woman who loves her husband ‘Tega Castle’, (played by RMD, Richard Mofe Damijo.) However the couple have very conflicting ideas on their legal interests, which causes incredible tension. I am happy to be working alongside RMD again, someone I consider to be a living legend. Castle & Castle Season 2 is everything amazing you can think of and more!”
