Days and Bold fans are worried their favourite soapies might get canned here because we’re so far behind.
Why is Days three years behind in South Africa and when will Bold be renewed it because it’s a year behind in South Africa? – YUSIE DAVIDS, VIA FACEBOOK Days (1965- current) fans would miss so much if we jumped ahead to be closer to the US broadcast dates – including all the action surrounding Days 50th anniversary and one of the biggest- ever serial killer storylines. And it would be prohibitively expensive! As for Bold (1987- current), SABC3 has shown no signs of dropping the soap and even took journalists and fans to the soapie’s latest location shoot and 30th anniversary in Monte Carlo this year [see pages 20-23]. In June this year CBS, Bold’s home channel, renewed it until Aug 2018. NB! See p20-25.
Bold is going nowhere anytime soon when it comes to SABC.3
