When people grow older, they become lonely and they need support - not necessarily from their own family but from a newly found family, often consisting of old friends. They are now at a point in their lives, where the frills are forgotten and you want to get to the core of being - with a twist of gin and tonic.
The show captures the tone, the unconscious and nearly universal aspect of living here now, with the message that age is purely chronological... you are as old as you want to be.
Season 4 introduces a raft of characters returning, including Tshepo Maseko in the role of Samson, Mmane's long lost son. Also returning is Lele Ledwaba (having previously guest starred in Season 3) in the role of Bella, who is engaged to Samson and was adopted by white parents when she was an infant.
Slindile Nodangala joins the cast this season in the role of Melo, Twiggy's sister from KZN who comes to Johannesburg to house sit Twiggy's house when she leaves for a trip overseas.
Also joining the cast is Russel Savadier as Bernard, Bella's father.
The series is produced by Lillian Dube Productions.
