SABC3 Will Replace Isidingo With Its Repeats
When Mzansi learned that SABC 3 had to cancel Isidingo, many were disappointed to see their favorite show going down. Though there was an expectation that something new it’s on the way, however, that is not the case.
The SABC 3 has announced that it would run Isidingo repeats for the next few months. After the series finale of Isidingo on Thursday, 12 March 13, 2020, the channel will run Isidingo repeats in the middle of primetime, selecting specific episodes from across the years to re-show.
According to the channel, 13th March and 16 March will be the “21st birthday celebration episodes. Followed by various Isidingo themes starting from Tuesday. Head of the channel, Pat Van Heerden said “we are working on the strategy going forward to ensure that sabc3 becomes financial and rating success. We are in the process of consolidating this strategy”.
“In the short term, we will be offering our views a chance to take a trip down memory lane and celebrate the best moments brought to us by the long-running program, Isidingo. We feel that the curating of the special moments over the decades would be a fitting farewell to a long-running series that has done well for sabc3 in the post”.
Isidingo was officially reproduced last year with broadcaster blaming poor audience ratings during the time slot.
