Hi tvplus. You advertised that The Following was starting on SABC but it didn’t. Why? – ELSIE, GEORGE
It was out of our hands as SABC3 (*193) pulled the serial killer-themed drama The Following (2013-2015) from their schedule after we had gone to print and replaced it with scifi series The Lottery (2014). An SABC3 spokesperson explains: “Programme Acceptance has informed us that this title is not suitable for the 21:00 slot as it contains a PG rating of 18.”
The Following was dropped by SABC3 without warning.
