Generations – The Legacy’s return to the screen

Posted by radio On December - 1 - 2014

It was a single decision that shook the television world and left Mzansi’s viewers speechless! The announcement was made in September of 2014 that the hugely popular soapie, Generations, will be off air for 2 solid months! But now the countdown is reaching fever pitch as viewers look forward in great anticipation to the celebrated return of, Generations–The Legacy, come Monday 1 December 2014 in the usual timeslot at 20h00.

 

“Generations The Legacy, is about stimulating a conversation on the transfer of wealth, knowledge and culture. Successive generations in African society have produced men and women of great intelligence, vision and the drive for excellence. For a variety of reasons -some no doubt related to our painful past, our development as a people has been stymied.

Generations The Legacy in its own way will address this issue -not in a didactic manner but in interesting narratives.  Now is the time to establish family legacies that move our country forward,” says both elated and relieved creator, Mfundi Vundla.

Generations-The-Legacy-Karabo&Tau465

Generations–The Legacy picks the drama’s rich narration 2 years into the future, Karabo Moroka (played by the revered Connie Ferguson) and Tau Mogale (played by the accomplished Rapulana Seiphemo), two iconic figures in Generations re-enter the cut-throat media business landscape.

This power couple is out to establish the legacy of Paul Moroka, the business visionary who built the first African-owned media enterprise. Unknown to Karabo, her husband Tau runs a parallel mission of establishing a legacy of his own. Deviousness has no boundaries: Tau’s sister Tshidi (Letoya Makhene), a trophy wife of the gangster, Gaddaffi (Vuyo Dabula) – Tau’s arch enemy, colludes albeit nervously in her husband’s efforts to derail the Paul Moroka legacy. Generations-The Legacy is a witch’s brew of narratives of ambition.  A drama set in a world where virtue and evil are in a stellar battle for supremacy.

 

The new and exciting cast includes the following interesting faces and roles: JT Medupi as Jonathan; Musa Ngema as Mazwi; Kopano Zimba as Mary; Manaka Ranaka as Lucy; Andisiwe Dweba plays the role of Getty; Lebogang Mthunzi as Angela; Moopi Mothibedi as Smanga; Thulisile Phongolo plays the character Namhla; Ronnie Nyakale plays Cosmo; Asanda Foji plays Simphiwe and Ivy Nkutha plays the role of Gog’Flo.

 

“The absence of Generations on SABC1’s schedule for the past two months was unfortunate and we would once again like to apologize to our viewers for the turn of events that led to the show taking a break,” says SABC1 Channel Head, Maijang Mpherwane. “It’s also important to thank our viewers for the patience and support during the past two months when Generations was off air.

We are excited to share the new series with them and we are confident that it will live up to their expectations. The series has a compelling storyline, top cast and world class performances that is bound to captivate viewers for many episodes and years to come, furthermore entrenching channel’s positioning as Mzansi’s official story teller.”

 

“From the 1st December 2014, Skeem Saam returns to the weekday 18h30 slot after performing beyond expectations on the weekday 20h00 slot. This further proves the relevance of the diverse stories told on SABC1, to a mass audience that continues to respond well to the channel. As communicated from the onset, this was always a temporary arrangement which would see channel reverting back to normal schedule upon the return of Generations: The Legacy and so we are confident that Skeem Saam will continue to do well for the channel on the weekday 18h30 slot,” he concludes.
