Sorry, what?: ‘Legacy’ gets canned, leaving fans gasping

3 min read

Word on the street has it that M-Net’s award-winning telenovela, Legacy, will not be renewed for a third season and fans have been hit right in the feels by the unexpected news.

Legacy won multiple awards at the 2021 Golden Horn Awards, making this sudden canning all the more puzzling. Having only run for two years, one can argue that the show has not even been given a fighting chance…

‘THE LEGACY’ TEA GETS SPILLED

Entertainment tea spiller Phil Mphela got some inside information, claiming Legacy has been “cancelled”. What a bombshell to drop on viewers just like that, neh?

Taking to his social media account, Mphela explained that Legacy had been canned by M-Net and will not be renewed for a third season. He however did not provide any reason for the shock news though.

The second season is currently showing and runs until September 2022, which will be it for avid Legacy watchers. Sorry fam, enjoy it while it lasts.

“TV: Legacy CANCELLED

“M-Net will be pulling the plug on telenovela at the end of its second season.

“Tshedza produced show will conclude the shooting of the second season in February 2022.

‘LEGACY’ IN A NUTSHELL

Legacy graced Mzansi viewers’ screens from back in September 2020, making the show a mere two years old. It quickly became a SA soapie staple, although it doesn’t look that way now, does it?

The saucy show is set in the fast-lane world of investment billionaires. Diving into the lives of these wealthy peeps, the show has provided some edge-of-the-seat drama. The ambitious Price family will do everything to protect their legacy, and that is where the show gets its name from.

It won an impressive six awards at the 2021 Golden Horn Awards. One of the most notable is the Golden Horn Award for Best Telenovela.

‘LEGACY’ FANS REACT TO NEWS

Some feel the show was getting a little boring or “dragging on” to be precise, but many asking what brought this on as, in their opinion, Legacy was still on fire!

There are a lot of mixed feelings and we are sure fans are going to be demanding answers from the producers.

I will definitely miss Sanele that character was so lovable, and Lexi and the uncle… This show really had a great cast. Storyline wasn’t too exciting but we loved the characters man ‍

@KgomotsoTlhapan:

I’m so sad I love Legacy I will definitely miss it shame, DINEO and Sanele are my fave . Coming to think of it a lot of people are not watching the show. The storyline was very interesting in the begging when Price died mysteriously from them on it was just chaotic.

@sandilecntuli:

I saw this one coming Phil even before the show started. Legacy has gone the same way as The Wild in 2011-2013. If you can afford DStv Premium, why would you spend your evenings watching a soap opera recycling The Bold and the Beautiful/ Days of our Lives 90s storylines?
