Synopsis

Eight-part series. A flawed but brilliant criminal profiler, Reyka Gama (Kim Engelbrecht), investigates a string of brutal murders committed by a serial killer in the sugar cane fields of KwaZulu-Natal.

Having been abducted as a child by a farmer named Angus Speelman (Iain Glen), Reyka is traumatised by the experience but this also helps her enter the minds of Africa’s most notorious criminals and turn them inside out.

Reyka premiered on M-Net in South Africa on 25th July 2021. Episodes are released weekly on Sundays at 8pm.

Reviews

“Reyka” is a gritty offering that meanders into a world that’s dark and dangerous. The story arcs may be unsettling but it is handled with commendable sensitivity and raw honesty.

– IOL, Debashine Thangevelo

The acting from the cast is top notch, Engelbrecht probably has a career highlight role.
