The backstage drama at South Africa’s most-watched TV show is finally heading for a nail-biting conclusion.

The 16 Generations stars who were fired after going on strike have agreed to go back to work following negotiations facilitated by the SABC’s chief operating officer, Hlaudi Motsoeneng.

Not all their demands have been met, but they will be getting more money, annual increases and longer-term contracts.

They have also sent a lawyer’s letter to Mfundi Vundla’s MMSV Productions saying they were willing to return to work.

But whether Vundla will take them back remains a mystery.

A highly placed source at Generations told City Press on Friday that the actors had “thrown in the towel” and agreed to return “unconditionally”.
