The actors said:
The end is never easy to deal with, even if you can see it coming for a long time. We reached the end of the road with Isidingo this week when many of our favourite cast members from SABC 3 soapie reported in to work for the last time.
Viewers of the TV series, Isidingo, should not lose hope because the show will still air for another two months on television.
Isidingo is meant to leave the screen in March 2020, but this week will mark the last day on set for most of the South Africans incredible actors. This is because the scenes are usually filmed in advance.
Last year, SABC revealed to the public that the show will be canceled. Reports had it that the decision was made because of Isidingo’s poor ratings. This has been a major problem for the contents of SABC 3.
Members of the show were caught by surprise when they received the news because they were not given a prior notice that the show will be canceled and it was through social media that they learnt about the latest development.
However, the skilled actors have portrayed a good sense of professionalism by working relentlessly until their final day on set.
Viewers of Isidingo should prepare to shed streaks of tears as they read the actors’ emotional messages.
