The 1000th episode of kykNET’s daily drama series Suidooster airs today. To celebrate they released a special throwback video with highlights of the most popular storylines. The producers recorded the 1000th episode in February.  

The first episode was broadcast on 16 November 2015 and it was the first Afrikaans soapie to be produced in Cape Town.

The soapie originally started with three episodes a week, which was increased to four episodes in 2017 and because of the soap’s popularity a fifth episode was added in 2018

Several veteran actors such as Denise Newman, Marcel van Heerden and Cedwyn Joel has been with Suidooster since day one, while Suidooster also gave an array of young talent such as Dean Smith, Marco Spaumer, Eden Classens, Gantane Kusch, Vashti Prins and Lauren Joseph the opportunity to become household names. 

Over the years Suidooster also recruited stars such as Maurice Paige and Annelisa Weiland to become part of the Ruiterbosch community, the fictional suburb which the soap calls home. 

Several other celebrities also made an appearance as themselves in Suidooster which include KFM’s Darren Simpson, well-known author Deon Meyer and singer Alistair Izobel.
