Youth documentary show is, Bornfrees, returning to this afternoon.

The 13 part-series which follows the lives of 8 young South Africans born in  1994. From 16 September, viewers will once again re-connect with the original Bornfrees to see how their lives have changed now that they are turning 18

In 2004’s Bornfrees followed 10 children born in 1994 to explore what it meant for them to be born into freedom. Five years later, season 2 followed-up with the children, who by then were 15 years. And now as South Africa celebrates its 18-year anniversary into democracy, the Bornfrees have come of age.

Viewers will witness the struggles and triumphs of the 8 youth as they respectively unpack what it means to be born post-apartheid.

“With 3 years having passed since we last saw the Bornfrees, viewers are in for a real treat. In Season 3, we will witness these seemingly care-free and spirited youth transform into young adults with responsibilities and big life-changing decisions to make”, commented Monde Twala, Head of Channel.

Season 3 takes the viewers back to season 1 where they will take a trip down memory lane to when the Bornfrees were only just 15 years. Now older, wiser and about to complete their Grade 12, viewers will get a glimpse of what has changed and how Thabiso Nkani, Sasha-Lee Subramoney and Thandeka Mbokazi, Kegan de Beer, Aminah Raciet, Likhaya Poni,  Khumbula Ngcobo and Aletta are all dealing with turning 18.

Often viewed to have an intrinsic advantage over previous generations, are the Bornfrees really born free? Find out as the 3rd Season of Bornfrees premieres on Sunday at 6.05 PM.
