Local drama “eHostela” is back to Season 3 following the success of the past two seasons.
The new season introduces a new cast but keeps the genre, tone, and mood of the show unchanged.
The 13-episode season follows KaMabizela (Nkosi), a widow out for vengeance, as she takes on ruthless gangster Ngwadi (Thwala), the man who betrayed and murdered her beloved husband, Mdletshe.
One of the respected men in the KwaDukuza hostel, Mdletshe runs the criminal underworld with his friend Ngwadi, but when the two have a fall out over Mdletshe’s plans to stop all criminal work at the hostel, Ngwadi takes extreme measures to retain power.
The season also stars the award-winning Tony Kgoroge, as well as Xoli Zondi, Nkanyiso Mchunu and Mduduzi Nombela.
It’s part of the channel’s exciting new wave which features a wider adoption of the globally popular anthology series genre – where each new season of an existing show features different faces and new stories within the same universe. So, while the cast and characters are different, the genre, tone and mood of the show remain unchanged, as already seen in season three of the romcom drama Unmarried.
The series airs on Sundays from 3 July at 20h00 on Mzansi Magic.
