Inspired by Dudu Busani-Dube’s best-selling book ‘Naledi His Love’, Showmax is set to kick off production for season three of The Wife.
According to BMA sources, the leading lady will be played by Gaisang Noge alongside Kwenzo Ngcobo, who recently won the Best Newcomer Award at the 2022 MultiChoice Viewers Choice Awards.
Showmax revealed that the new season will air in November 2022. Though the show making a comeback is news that should excite fans, The Wife is reportedly going through significant cast changes for the new season.
According to BMA sources, a few cast members are leaving the show, counting Zikhona Sodlaka, Mondli Makhoba and Khanyi Mbau.
In a statement released by the production company Stained Glass, they confirmed season 3 but not the cast members.
“Stained GlassTV is delighted to premiere the third installation of the award-winning, record-breaking, Showmax original telenovela The Wife.
We are currently in the pre-production phase, which includes the contracting process for all cast and crew. Our principal actors have been confirmed to be part of the third season. Stained Glass, the cast and staff can’t wait to bring viewers a gripping season. The Wife will return to SA screens in November 2022,” the statement read,
Commenting on the cast change, Nomsa Philiso, MultiChoice’s executive head of programming, said, “No decisions have been made about the final cast list for season three.”
