It's definitely true... TVSA can confirm that the Phillips family is out of Generations: The Legacy.
The family, headed-up by Terence Bridgett's Michael Phillips, were first introduced in December 2017 with Terence receiving a "Special Guest Appearance" in the credits.
He was later joined by Schelaine Bennett, Nicole Fortuin and Donovan Pietersen in the roles of his daughters and grandson and by early June 2018
they'll be gone.
We've been snooping to find out why and asked the soapie's publicist Gaaratwe Mokhethi:
We’ve heard that some people on Twitter have said that the show should only have an all-black cast - is this why they're leaving? Is it because the writers feel that the family hasn't been the success they hoped it would be?
The Phillips family came to service a specific story arc; the writers never intended for the family to be principal cast members. They portrayed their individual roles exceptionally and it was an absolute pleasure having them on the set of Generations: The Legacy.
