Mzansi Magic’s telenovela, The Road has unfortunately reached the end of its road.

According to The Juice, the show's last episode will air on 31 March 2016.

Mzansi Magic’s publicity manager, Bongi Potelwa confirmed the news but denies claims that the show has been scrapped due to poor viewership figures.

The star-studded show was canned after just four months of airplay and 128 episodes under its belt. Competition was intensive for The Road, being up against prime time heavyweights such as SABC3’s Isidingo and e.tv’s Scandal.

First week of airing The Road netted an estimated 437 000 viewers. By October half of the viewers changed channels and last month the show only managed 128 000 tuned-in viewers.

Every good thing comes to an end, and that also rings true for The Road.
