Uzalo Mon-Wed SABC1 20:30

Now of­fi­cially SA’s big­gest show, Uzalo launched on Mon­day 9 Fe­bru­ary this year and first over­took Gen­er­a­tions – The Legacy (De­cem­ber 2014-cur­rent) in June af­ter Muzi Xulu (Mpumelelo Bhu­lose) buried his wife and son alive. And on Mon­day 28 Septem­ber, Uzalo reaches its 100th episode. Se­ries pro­ducer Mmamitse Thibedi says, “I am proud that we got to 100 episodes! We are more than two thirds into the sea­son (of 156 episodes). We’re con­clud­ing cliffhang­ers that we set up at the start of the sea­son. It’s been an ex­haust­ing process but it’s been awe­some.”

Uzalo head­writer Phathu Mak­warela adds that “reach­ing 100 just took ev­ery­one by sur­prise. The next story meet­ing, ev­ery­one was very ex­cited – we had lots of bil­tong and lots of sweets.” And it’s a huge thank you to the view­ers. “As the writ­ing team, we’re eter­nally grate­ful that the au­di­ence has taken us in their hearts and have made us the big­gest show in the coun­try,” says Phathu.

Ayanda and his fam­ily (left) and Mx­olisi (right) and his fam­ily are the main pro­tag­o­nists – and a se­ri­ous hit with TV au­di­ences.

Fan-favourite Muzi be­ing “killed” got ev­ery­one talk­ing.
