According to Phil Mphela, this was the main reason the beloved soapie was scheduled for cancellation, because there was a delay in renewing contracts for the new season.

Taking to his Twitter (X) page, Phil alleges that Muvhango and SABC are still in talks to renew contracts and that the soapie would return to regular programming:

"This is a developing situation, and I will share when finalised. But, by all accounts, the show will continue."
