Season 3


The drama at Echelon Estate kicks into a new gear in Season 3.

After a long, bitter and embattled land-claim court case, the coveted luxury lifestyle estate has been awarded to the community of Thembalethu.

The question is: will they take the payout, or the land?

Premier Castro Kamanga's dreams to fulfil the promise of Project Phoenix lie in tatters and some corrupt political allies have turned to dangerous enemies.

However, he has his sights set on walking the corridors of power all the way to the top, and he has a secret ace up his sleeve: the master fixer with a grand plan, Melisizwe Nobengela.

Melisizwe is about to bring his perfect family into the world of Echelon Estate, but just like every other family, they have skeletons of their own, waiting to be unearthed.

Lwandle Phakathwayo is determined to rid herself of the Muzi Phakathwayo shackles and re-invent herself in the aftermath of his betrayal.

Meanwhile, star-crossed newlyweds Sindi and Dumisani must decide if love really can conquer the Phakathwayo-Mokobane feud.

Detective Jo Mohammed has her sights set on bringing down Premier Kamanga, but is it a dangerous fool's errand?

This season we are introduced to the Nobengela Family.

Dumisani Mbebe joins the cast as Melisizwe, the patriarch in the Nobengela household.

He is a businessman and political fixer associated with Castro Kamanga.

Lerato Mvelase plays Melisiwe's wife, Noxolo, an interior design business owner.

Melisiwe and Noxolo relocate to Johannesburg with their children, Gcinekile (Samke Makhoba), Vukani (Siya Xaba) and Mzolisi (Anga Makubalo).

Moopi Mothibeli joins the show as Mohau Kabi a smart, Bachelor of Science in Engineering student.

Lucia Cooper returns as Jo, Jo-anne Reyneke as Lwandle, Dineo Langa as Mmakwena, Matli Mohapeloa as Lesiba, Mpho Sibeko as Dumisani, Zenokuhle Maseko as Sindi, Jacques Blignaut as Martin, Sparky Xulu as Siya, Clementine Mosimane as Mmatshepo and Carla Classen as Tessa.

Lwandle is burdened by her late husband's misdeeds as she is left with debt.

The drama intensifies when Lesiba finds out about his wife's betrayal.

Land, identity, family, love, murder, betrayal, the crisis of governance and the fearless struggle for a better tomorrow create high drama on Season 3.

The fight for freedom is a neverending story.

In the Season 3 premiere: Frustrations grow between residents and protestors at the Echelon gates.

Meanwhile, Lwandle has an unconventional request for the Phakathwayos.

Also, the Nobengela family faces a violent threat sparked by a schoolboy fight.

Based on a concept by Helen Smit and Genna Lewis, The Estate is produced by Clive Morris Productions.

The head writers for Season 3 are Bongi Ndaba and Sibongile Nkosana.
