Mzansi Magic’s new supernatural drama series, The Herd, made it’s debut on our small screens this past Sunday and it looks like it’s about to take over.
The new show took over the 8pm slot after the first season of Abomama Bemthandazo ended. It’s cast includes old-time fave Sello Maake Ka-Ncube, the talented Winnie Ntshaba and rising star Sihle Ndaba. Joining the cast of this compelling series are Zethu Dhlomo, Tiisetso Thoka and Peter Mashigo.
The first episode on The Herd trended the whole night on Sunday with fans very excited for the production. Viewers were mostly impressed by the cast, saying that it is great to see new faces instead of the same old.
Briefly.co.za recently reported about Winnie Ntshaba joining The Herd and fans still calling her Khethiwe, her former character’s name from Generations.
The about Bhekisizwe Mthethwa (Sello Maake Ka Ncube) who twenty-eight years ago was fired from his job at a butchery due to his leg injury. With no job and a hungry wife and baby, Bheki sought the guidance of the local witch, MaMngadi (Winnie Ntshaba), who promised him a bright future, if he was willing to make a great sacrifice.
Bheki is now married to MaMngadi with three more children, Muzi (Sparky Xulu), Nkosana (Paballo Mavundla) and Dumazile (Cindy Mahlangu). We soon realise that Bheki’s big sacrifice still weighs heavily on his soul and when he chooses the successor to his cattle business, viewers get to see a family at odds and siblings in rivalry, as they go into battle over what each believes to be rightfully theirs.
“Sacrifice is at the heart of many human stories, particularly when looking at the family structure. It’s the man’s responsibility to take care of his loved ones and sometimes the pressure of supporting the family can drive a man to the edges of darkness. The Herd is essentially about that: the sacrifices we make for love,” says Director of Local Entertainment Channels at M-Net, Reneilwe Sema.
