Shortly after announcing that Generations: The Legacy would be coming to an end with fans only being able to see old reruns, the SABC has backtracked on its decision.
Apparently, the broadcaster and producers have reached an agreement and two more seasons will be aired on SA screens.
TimesLIVE reports that new episodes are expected to start showing in December.
"The common ground reached by the two parties stems from the fact that the soap has maintained its spot as South Africa’s most loved soap for the past 28 years. The programme boasts a viewership of more than 8.5 million and is currently the second most-watched daily soap in the country."

This comes after the SABC has decided to put the filming of the soapie on hold for a month.
Briefly.co.za reported that it was alleged that a contractual dispute between producers and the broadcaster was the reason behind the decision to take the soapie off the air.
Whatever really happened behind the scenes, fans will be happy to have their favourite soapie back on track.
