Cancelled! Rhythm City
Unfortunately, the long and tumultuous journey of the daily is coming to an end. According to a report that e.tv put up, the company had agreed to conclude the production of the soap opera. This decision comes after airing it for more than a decade. According to the report, the last episode of Rhythm City would air on 21st July 2021.
The decision was made despite the show gathering an audience of more than 5.2 million adult viewers in 2020 and securing a position among the top 10 most-watched local shows in South Africa. The decision to decommission the show is part of a business strategy which involves reviewing Rhythm City's on-air life cycle.
According to the Managing Director of e.tv, Marlon Davids,
e.tv continues to look forward to fulfilling its mandate of producing exceptional and relevant local content, and the production has successfully achieved its part of the obligation throughout the past 13 years. Rhythm City has secured its place in e.tv's history books, and a legacy mark has been made. We want to extend our gratitude to the entire production staff, crew, and cast for their incomparable craft.
The decision has come as a shock for most fans, although the stations assure them that the new show that will replace Rhythm City will keep the flame burning.
Meanwhile, catch Rhythm City episodes on e.tv from Mondays to Fridays at 19h00. Will Pule become the new shining star of the show? Comment below.
