Urama series created by Ferguson Films which follows three young female friends living in Johannesburg as they deal with the pressures of juggling marriage, motherhood, relationships and their careers.

Thembi (Thembisa Mdoda) happens to be the only one of the three with children, having fallen pregnant at 17 by her childhood sweetheart Bongani (Nyaniso Dzedze).

The new season features the first female presenter of the series: Kabous Meiring will take over the task of visiting the most successful farms in Southern Africa.

Big farmers are struggling to make a profit in neighbouring countries, with circumstances similar to South Africa. Agriculture is a challenge in Africa, because it's not just about profit, turnover, maps and transport - food provision is about adaptability.

Kabous therefore does her best to portray struggling farmers' adaptability to climate change, droughts, social challenges and politics.
