Season 3


Bettina (Betty), everyone's favourite bestie, returns in a more quirky, funny, self-assured, and motivated way than ever.

uBettina Wethu is a dramedy that is an adaptation of the Columbian series Yo Soy Betty La Fea, a television drama successfully adapted for local audiences in 19 countries – including the US adaptation Ugly Betty.

In Season 3, Betty gets all the things that she wants but just not the thing that she needs.

She gets the position of Managing Director very soon into the season because she has the shares, because Linda trusts her and because Dingaan has been struggling to run the business.

She gets quickly elevated into a more powerful position, but now has to deal with the reality of what managers and shareholders have to deal with.

She has to worry about salaries, payments and the fact that she's now in management and has friends who are not.

She's getting the experience of what she wants, to run a company, but she realises it isn't those coloured dreams she thought it would be.

In the Season 3 premiere, "Flying High": Things are looking for up for Betty, both in her career and love life but it's a hard being back home.

Desperate to track down Delilah, Dingaan goes to Archie in jail while Reggie uses the power of social media to get his freedom from AJ.

Meanwhile, Israel has become Mr. New Money.

uBettina Wethu is a Viu Original, co-produced by Viu South Africa and Known Associates Entertainment in association with SABC1, the Department of Trade Industry & Competition South Africa, Canal+ International and The National Empowerment Fund.
