"The medical drama series peaked at 2 Million viewers in November but sadly dropped to 1,75-million for their most watched episode in December 2020," said Mphela.

A number of social media users took to Phil's comments to talk about why they think the show has lost so many viewers:

@_nhlanhla_ngubo said: "They should can it in my opinion. Reason being, I expected to see a lot of medical scenes and learn through the process like the show 'The Good Doctor’ but we have to know about Dr Zulu’s side chicks for half of the season."
@Luka_Marli commented: "I'm part of that 2 million. I thought it was gonna be more like Grey's. Medical cases plus a bit of drama. It's an entire Uzalo in a hospital setting."
@Amanda_Maps1 said: "They focus more on drama and dramatic scenes and forget that it's suppose to be a medical series."

In other television news, Briefly.co.za reported that Dawn Thandeka King is leaving Uzalo to star in a new television series. Dawn Thandeka King is moving to a new set, new cast and new television show.
