Star Life April 2020 skeds: what viewers need to know

The Crossroads | Forever Yours| Chasing My Heart

Star Lifers... take a deep breath *breathe* and scooch in for a virtual group hug for the news that follows... 

As from Wednesday, 1 April 2020, all new series will pause because of COVID-19. These include Kulfi, Made For Each Other, The Inseparables, Geet, Family Affairs and A Perfect Lie. 

The Star Life studios in India and South Africa have had to go into lockdown, which means the channel's production operations have been locked down too.

New episodes can't be filmed or distributed, the dubbing studios are closed and none of the usual processes can be implemented to ensure that new series are on air.

The result: the channel will be airing binge sessions of shows that have aired.

This will happen for the next seven to eight weeks and the timeline afterwards will depend on what's happening with lockdowns etc.

When the new shows return, the channel will repeat the last week of episodes that we've just seen as a way to catch-up and continue.

This is what the primetime schedule will look like from Wednesday:

18h00 to 19h00: The Crossroads (1 hour daily / two episodes)
19h00 to 21h30: Forever Yours (2.5 hours daily / five episodes - sometimes three if they're an hour)
21h30 to 23h00: Chasing My Heart (1.5 hours daily / three episodes)

These will air Mondays to Sundays.

The daily Bollywood movies will continue at 15h00.

We'll be reloading the teasers for the three series for those of you who haven't seen them and also to keep you in touch with what's happening on the channel at all times.

Wuvvles to you all.
