Die Spreeus plot

Die Spreeus features two fearless detectives – portrayed by Chris Vorster and Monique Rockman – as they investigate strange phenomenon every week.

What makes Die Spreeus unique is that it also tackles various stories from South African culture, including the tokoloshe and the Ghost from Uniondale. Wikus Du Toit explains:

“The first episode is based on a CJ Langenhoven story, ‘The ruin at
Wilgerdal.’ Later there is also an episode about Antjie Somers, about the ‘Ghost of Uniondale,’ there’s one about the tokoloshe.”

Die Spreeus preview

What lies ahead? Well, according to kykNET:

From a fearsome army of ghosts claiming their revenge, a supernatural meeting at a ruin and a woman who disappears and returns with a very scary difference to an autistic boy who can see into the future, an aggressive creature and a visitor from the past who can’t seem to find rest – make sure you aren’t home alone Tuesday nights.
