#TheQueenMzansi comes to an end
This must be a huge blow for the viewers as one of the most-watched TV dramas in Mzansi, The Queen will be coming to an end after running out of the episodes allegedly due to the national lockdown.
DStv’s most-watched show will go off air after the second week of May. The popular 9 pm time-slot will be replaced by reality TV shows Utatakho (Tuesdays), Papa Penny Ahee! (Thursdays), Seng’khathele (Fridays), and Madam & Mercy (Wednesdays).
Mzansi Magic is also fast running out of new episodes for Sunday night reality TV shows Date My Family and Our Perfect Wedding.
The channel revealed in a statement on Tuesday that: “The programming team is also working on something special for the Date My Family and Our Perfect Wedding fans, with a compilation of the best weddings and family dates that will share the ultimate moments in reality TV.”
Furthermore, with Isibaya going off-air from next week, it will be replaced by Somizi Mhlongo’s wedding reality show Somizi & Mohale: The Union that aired exclusively on streaming service Showmax.
“With these changes to our line-up and a host of award-winning shows, viewers can still enjoy a riveting line-up of great entertainment to make staying at home more bearable. It is, after all, about #stayathome,” said Nomsa Philiso, the Director of M-Net Local Entertainment Channels.
