Following the success of the first Bridgerton series on Netflix, which has been watched for a cumulative 625 million hours by more than 82 million accounts worldwide, making it the most popular series on Netflix to date, the Shondaland series has already started teasing a post-Regé-Jean Page era.

Netflix has released the first sneak peak into season 2 of the Bridgerton. In a bunch of pictures that have sparked a frenzy on social media, we get a look at Anthony Bridgerton (Jonathan Bailey) in an encounter with Kate Sharma (Sex Education‘s Simone Ashley), his meddlesome love interest in the coming season.

We are meeting the Sharma’s, who make their entrance to the proper London society, including Shelley Conn as Mary Sharma and new face Charithra Chandran as Kate’s younger sister Edwina.

Kate’s character is said to be a smart and stern new arrival in London. She “suffers no fools” and Anthony is very much involved. Those who’ve read the book will be familiar with the way conflict will arise, as the chemistry between Anthony and Kate disrupts the plan for Anthony to marry Edwina.

The photos also contain Ruth Gemmell as Lady Violet Bridgeton, Claudia Jessie as Eloise, Bailey as Anthony and Luke Thompson as Benedict.

Bridgerton has already been renewed for a third series and fourth series, with a spinoff already in the works.

Sunday, 15 February 2023, marks the roaring arrival of BBTitans.

WHAT YOU SHOULD KNOW.

The highly anticipated social experiment brings under Biggie’s roof housemates from both South Africa and Nigeria. And for 72 days, we will be splashed with the finest in South African and Nigerian swag, banter, romance and all the trappings of a fun-filled, dramatic and – we’d hope – an entertaining show.

A first of its kind, the social experiment assembles the most colourful personalities from the two nations to outwit, outplay and outsmart each other in a bid to get their hands on a massive bag, life-changing bag!

In addition to a number of lofty prizes that will likely be on the line throughout the season, the winner of the show will also be walking away, a whopping grand prize of US $100 000 (over R1,7 million) is up for grabs for the one who trounces his Housemates to charm audiences across the continent.

That’s not all; the amount of social capital, celebrity and opportunities for lucrative brand deals after the show, all form part of the career-launching lift-off that comes with being on the popular franchise.

Both Big Brother Mzansi host Lawrence Maleka and Big Brother Naija’s Ebuka Obi-Uchendu will co-host this debut season.

Fans of Big Brother Mzansi and Big Brother Naija in the diaspora are not left out as Showmax will stream the show in the United Kingdom, New Zealand, and about 50 other countries.

Drinks to the right, and cry angles to the left. The girlies of Gqeberha are coming to splash glimpses of their fabulous lives on the Real Housewives of Gqeberha!

The reality series, which was first announced by M-Net on 5 January 2023, will be premiering on 1Magic on Friday, 3 February at 8:30 PM. And, if the six other African Real Housewives titles are anything to go by, audiences can expect displays of opulence among the coastal city’s flashiest echelons.

Along with the official poster, which features the cast clad in golden gowns with traditional Xhosa finishes, we’ve now been given further detail on the women on the cast.

NORMA NICOL

Career-focused and fierce, when Norma isn’t running things as an events planner at Nelson Mandela Bay Stadium, she’s a dedicated wife and mom. Married into Ghanaian royalty, Norma is the real deal when it comes to glitz and glam. She stylishly juggles many roles without breaking a nail – but will anyone dare come for her throne? 

BULI G NGOMANE

In-demand MC, high-end events planner, brand ambassador, former Idols SA contestant, award-winning businesswoman, and now, ‘Real Housewife’: to say that the charismatic Buli G’s CV is impressive would be an understatement. A highly connected social butterfly known for bringing the light into any room she enters – will her light be too bright for some in the cast? 

LIZ

A dedicated mom and socialite who loves jogging, Liz is a straight shooter. But beneath that bubbly exterior is a woman who is softer than she seems. Still recovering from the loss of her beloved husband, the construction project manager who sold her company for eight figures is navigating life as a widow. Her heart might be in the right place, but will her words land her in hot water with the group? 

UNATHI FAKU

Self-proclaimed Gqeberha royalty, Unathi is no shrinking violet. As a successful salon owner and the wife of the city’s former mayor, she is comfortable in the public eye and having her every move watched. A gym lover whose social media pages are peppered with fitness snaps, she’s also a dedicated and doting mother. Will she be able to let her guard down with the other ladies? 

ASHLEIGH MATHER

The sweetheart of the group, fresh-faced Ashleigh is a wife and mom who works in the fabulously fast-paced fashion industry. But don’t be fooled: while she might be unassuming, she’s no pushover. With her family owning two of the biggest clubs in the city, she certainly has a wild side that might catch her castmates by surprise. How will they react when she lets her hair down?
