Season 6


The River is a South African telenovela revolving around communities on two different sides of a river: society's upper crust in exquisite mansions who will go to any lengths to maintain their wealth, and the exploited "common folk" who constantly toil with little to show for it.

On 3 February, 2023 - the date of the Season 5 finale - 1Magic announced that Season 6 would be the last for the show.

According to executive producer Phathu Makwarela, they felt the show had run its course.

"When we created The River seven years ago, we knew that we wanted to tell a story that will have a definite ending," he said in a press release.

"Now on its sixth season, we feel the time is right to bring the story of these beloved characters to an end, on our own terms and when viewers still treasure the show."

The final season will have 260 episodes as in past seasons, and will end with Episode 1,560 on Friday 2 February, 2024.

In the Season 6 premiere, "Death Descends": Death descends in the world and someone doesn't get enough of making enemies.

The River is an M-Net Original Production created and executive produced by Gwydion Beynon and Phathutshedzo Makwarela, for Tshedza Pictures.

The duo are also the head writers.

Music is by Brendan Jury.
