The South African Broadcasting Corporation (SABC) on Tuesday announced that their afternoon talk show, ‘Real Talk’ will not return for another season.
Rumours of the show’s cancellation surfaced late last year, just months after Anele Mdoda quit the show in June 2018. The show was then taken over by Azania Mosaka and aired every weekday afternoon until the end of 2018.
At the time of the announcement, SABC 3 was running repeat episodes of the show with no indication of when live shows would return. The statement confirmed that once the repeat episodes conclude, the show would not be returning for a fifth season.
