"SA’s Got Talent [is] coming back. Primedia Studios will be bringing the popular talent search show back to Mzansi screens. Production and auditions are likely to happen in 2024."

Mphela told Briefly News that the show will be revitalised and possibly attract new audiences because of this very move.

"The show will be repackaged and possibly done with a new production company. That will lend it some freshness that will make it feel new."

Phil touched on Idols SA, which has been canned after 19 seasons. He argued that the constant introduction of new seasons back-to-back threw viewers off.

"Idols SA would have benefitted from some breaks in between seasons. The annual renewal of the show got to a point where it triggered viewers’ fatigue."
