Season 12


Skeem Saam is a blend of stories about the journey to manhood. It examines the plight of today's male children and the tough challenges they face transitioning into manhood.

The underlying premise for the local drama series is that real men are made, not born.

Teenage boys naturally challenge themselves. They wish to find out what their limits are.

Who will survive to see his 21st birthday? Who will grow into a healthy, responsible man?

What are the responsibilities to fathers, uncles, teachers and neighbours towards shaping the next generation of men?

The series takes a close look at the lives of three teenage boys and their families.

It examines how these boys deal with issues of masculinity, gender relations, relationships; self esteem, etc.

Skeem Saam challenges old notions of masculinity by promoting the new positive young versions of masculinity that are emerging in our modern society.

The aim is to offer young people the opportunity to become themselves and not just their gender.

Through the series they will learn that they shouldn't be limited by stereotyped gender roles and rules and that all human beings are the same and are deserving of the equal treatment.

In the Season 12 premiere: When a colleague has a mental breakdown, Babeile is made to carry the blame and all that comes with it.

Meanwhile, Maputla returns and is not happy with the state of his son.

Also, Lehasa assures Francois that Level is in the right hands.

Skeem Saam was created by Winnie Serite and produced by PEU Communication Solutions in association with the Gauteng Film Commission and SABC Education.

Serite is the executive producer.
