It's been a while since we've seen the arrival of a big new family on a soapie and Scandal!'s doing it for spring.
The Kubekas make their debut on Friday 3 September and they're a five-person clan, who bring other characters from their world with them.
As you'll see from the top pic, Dintle's in the thick of things so she's clearly going to be connected to them somehow.
This is who they are:
Played by Fana Mokeona (The Lab, Generations, Yizo Yizo)
Vukile is a charmer with a healthy dose of humour, yet laced with a very dark past.
He wants to grow a legacy for his family and create generational wealth through his family-owned waste business with his wife, Nomvula.
Being a doting family man, he intends to do everything needed to keep his family united.
Played by Slindile Nodangala (Lockdown, Generations, Skwizas)

Dudu is a business graduate. She is cool-headed and lives for the family business, often sacrificing her heart and freedom in the process.
She is tough and always in control, believing she is the only one of the siblings equipped to run the company.
Played by Robert Mpisi (Soul City, The Queen, Mfolozi Street)
Robert is the first born and being the youngest, he has only known a “soft life”. He is hot-headed, impulsive and a risk-taker.
Played by Wendy Gumede (Isibaya, How to Ruin Christmas)
As much as the Kubeka’s live an orderly and almost perfect life, there is an underlying secret that could tarnish this image. Vukile has a concubine. Rachel. A cashier at the waste management company.
Rachel is the total opposite of Nomvula. She's endearing, warm and friendly and very easy to fall in love with, something Vukile found hard to resist …
