From the Spoorloos: Steynhof finale, to Temptation Island SA, it’s on DStv this week.
Tense dramas, telenovela tension, fun reality series and a helping hand, too, this week in DStv’s best local series.
Brand-new couples counselling series Love Me, Leave Me on Honey (DStv channel 173) gives troubled lovebirds one last chance to get things right. There are “slim” slimming tips to be had in a new episode of Slank, and Unefa shares happy news about family legacies, too.
Get ready for the highly anticipated finale of mystery series Spoorloos: Steynhof, while Reyka must decide whether to trust Stuurman in a new episode of Reyka, and the Star Fly drivers are pushed to their limits in Nqobile.
With so much tension, we could use a little fun in a new episode of music quiz show Musiekpaniek,and it’s here at last – the brand-new local version of sexy relationship reality series Temptation Island SA.
And since it wouldn’t be the best of local TV without our telenovelas, catch up on Dineo’s battle to take down James in Legacy, see who has the upper hand between Seipati and Puleng in Lingashoni, and find out how Sne has a breakthrough in DiepCity.
