Season 1


Redemption is a South African telenovela which depicts a family at war with itself, as beneath the surface exists many secrets and lies which threaten to test their belief system and tear them apart.

Set in a mega church, the story revolves around the close-knit and highly respected Zikode family.

After the mysterious disappearance of celebrated pastor Simon Zikode, played by Themba Ndaba, his daughter Faith (Kwanele Mthethwa) - who is on the cusp of an international music career - drops everything to come to her family's rescue.

As Faith immerses herself in the church and the family's affairs, she uncovers devastating secrets about those closest to her and is confronted with her own skeletons.

Dark truths come to light and the Zikode family are faced with many baffling decisions as they scramble to salvage the family's legacy.

Will Faith Zikode's discovery about the truth about her family's unscrupulous and devious past and present make her walk her away from her own blood for good or will she stick around to save the family's legacy?

The series tagline is "God for us all, Guluva for himself".

The series stars Kwanele Mthethwa, Themba Ndaba, Tina Jaxa, Sparky Xulu, Sthandiwe Kgoroge, Yonda Thomas, Pearl Modiadie, Zenzo Ngqobe, Seputla Sebogodi, Pakamisa Zwedala, Mmarona Motshegoa, Peter Mashigo, Helen Lebepe, Leera Mthethwa, Marjorie Langa, N'kone Mamejta, Toka Mtabane and Sonni Chidiebere.
