The first season of Ashes to Ashes ended on a high note, leaving the audience at the edge of their seats following the Namane family’s troubling events. This may be the reason why expectations are high for the next season. The 8pm slot will never be the same again.


The new season promises to deliver a thrilling storyline, and introduce new members to the cast. They include Tina Jaxa who plays Nokulunga Radebe, Nandi Nyembe as Detective Nkonzo’s mother, Ma Nkonzo, as well as the self-proclaimed prince of theatre Atandwa Kani as Buzwe Sihlahla, a lawyer to represent Tsietsi.


The orginal cast, which includes Patrick Shai, Nambitha Mpumlwana, Zenande Mfenyana, Menzi Ngubane, Nyaniso Dze Dze and Nyalleng Thibedi, also makes a comeback.

The sizzling telenovela will air on Monday, 14 March, and be available in HD on eHD channel 104 on OpenView HD, as well as Channel 194 on DSTV.
