Mzansi SABC soapie Uzalo has taken a huge dip in ratings and as a last-ditch attempt to save the show, the producers have called on old members of the cast. Social media users have expressed that they are not really feeling the show any more.
SABC has given Uzalo a warning to switch up their storyline. Since Dawn Thandeka King left the show, there was a worry that the soapie would lose even more viewers as time went on.
Khaya Dladla, who played GC, told the Daily Sun that he will be returning to the soapie. As well Nay Maps and TK Dlamini, they are also preparing to make a comeback to the show.
Baby Cele, who was also on the show, confirmed that the actors would be returning during an interview with Ukhozi FM.
“Good news for Uzalo actors as GC, Thobile, Mxo and Mastermind are coming back to the show," she said.
Since Uzalo aired on SABC, the show pulled millions of viewers and it became one of the most-loved soapies in Mzansi. The producers are desperately trying to recover the viewers they have lost.
South African soapie watchers will be hoping that the return of their favourite characters will spice up the programme once more.
In other Mzansi television news, Briefly.co.za reported that Blood & Water season 2 is set to return with new faces. Blood & Water Season 2 is returning soon on Netflix. The African original Netflix series will be introducing new characters in the upcoming season.
The viewers of the epic show will be happy to know that original cast members of the drama series are all back for the new season. Fans can look forward to seeing their faves including Natasha Thahane, Cindy Mahlangu and Ama Qamata, among others.
Among the new faces to the most-loved show, is Leroy Siyafa. Leroy will portray the role of Sam.
