A brand new Generations, with none of the 16 actors that were fired, is being created by the show’s script team.

This follows a lekgotla, held from Monday to Thursday this week, in the mountains of the Magaliesberg outside Joburg.

Generations as we know it will run out of filmed episodes at the end of September.

The “new Generations”, as it’s being described by the crew, will begin on December 1.

Various sources on the production team, who did not want to be named, confirmed that the new Generations would remain an aspirational drama played out in the advertising world.

The action would simply pick up in the future.

Writers refused to divulge details,however, saying they were sworn to secrecy. Generations creator and producer, Mfundi Vundla of MMSV Productions, sent an SMS saying: “New show is Top Secret!!”

It was another week of backstage twists, drama, tension and cliffhangers at the country’s most popular TV show.
