Stout Season 2
Stout tells the story of a troublesome teenager, Lumko – played by Ntoboeko Sishi (best known for playing his role as Ntokozo on Gomora) – A troublesome teenager gets a harsh reality check when he finds himself in a reform school for delinquent youth.
This harsh world forces him to face his mistakes and fears so he can become the best version of himself. A close family friend uses his influence to get Lumko a lighter sentence: being enrolled in Jonah’s House for Boys (JHB) an institution for troublesome (and troubled) young men – in effect, “stout school”.
Faced with prison or “stout school”, the decision seems like an easy one. But Lumka gets a harsh reality check when he is forced to face his mistakes and fears to become the best version of himself at the school.
The 26-episode series unravels the friendships, written and unwritten rules, family, relationships, and the uncovering of the truth behind the murder that that changed Lumko’s life forever. The first season was incredibly popular, and Season 2 is finally here with more gripping episodes being delivered every Tuesday, only on eVOD.
