Second season of Pawn Stars South Africa will start on History on 29 March; Cecily Pavoncelli joins the team as more intriguing local artefacts surface.

The second season of Pawn Stars South Africa will start on History (DStv 186) on Tuesday 29 March at 20:30 with the new season of the local pawn shop show that will see intriguing artefacts ranging from bronze hands and something from Nadine Gordimer to sketches from the Zambezia movie.

The second season of the Rapid Blue produced show sees the addition of new team member Cecily Pavoncelli to Pawn Stars SA, and its her job to hunt for some valuable items for the Cash Inn pawn shop in Johannesburg that owner Roy Peretz can possibly end up selling for even more money.

Besides Roy Peretz and Cecily Pavoncelli, partners Eytan and Liel and assistants Irene and Solly also return.

They once again haggle with customers who want to pawn or sell a range of often strange and unique items.

In the second season of Pawn Stars South Africa on History viewers will see an original bronze casting of heart doctor Professor Chris Barnard's hands exchange hands, an interesting piece of literary history from the Nobel Prize winning author Nadine Gordimer come up, as well as original art from the South African film Zambezia.

Other items include maps and firearms, as well as items related to South Africa's liberation struggle over the last 50 years.

"We are absolutely thrilled to be working on a second series of Pawn Stars SA for A+E Networks," says Kee-Leen Irvine of Rapid Blue.

"We're really proud of our first season, which has not only been shown in South Africa but also in the United Kingdom, Canada and Romania, receiving enthusiastic feedback from far and wide".
