Family Feud South Africa, hosted by Steve Harvey, has returned to Netflix and eTV for a second season.

Netflix has signed up for a second season of 26 episodes and is taking the format from South Africa to new audiences across 44 countries in sub-Saharan Africa. Family Feud is distributed by Fremantle.

Harvey commented: “It has long been a dream of mine to bring television projects to Africa. In 2019, I was able to fulfill that dream by acquiring the rights to produce Family Feud in South Africa and Ghana. I am ecstatic that Netflix has partnered with us for a second season such that Family Feud South Africa will be made available to viewers across the continent. The goal has always been to bring humor and more great television to Africa. Netflix is helping that goal come to life, and I could not be more proud.”

Amaç Us, senior VP of distribution in the Middle East, Africa and Southeastern Europe at Fremantle, said: “Family Feud is one of Fremantle’s longest-running and best-loved formats, and this exciting iteration has been a great avenue for showcasing and celebrating South African culture. We are thrilled to have Netflix on board for the second series and I’m sure their audiences are just as excited as we are.”
