Come Dine With Me South Africa 7

Come Dine With Me South Africa returns, featuring 48 extrovert and eccentric contestants from Johannesburg and Cape Town.

The show, featuring "the good, the bad and the hungry" will continue to be narrated by the voiceover legend Dave Lamb.

The format follows four amateur chefs as they each host a three-course dinner party for the other contestants at their own home.

Competitors then rate the host's food and hosting skills at the end of each evening, with the highest-scoring chef winning R10,000 cash.

This season look forward to meeting new bold and brilliant personalities, such as self-proclaimed pug-aholic Judd, Russia-obsessed Tamlyn and erotica writer Gina.

In the Season 7 premiere: In week one the knives (and forks) are out in Johannesburg.

We travel to the urban jungle of Randburg and meet four bold and brilliant personalities: gentle self-proclaimed pug-aholic Judd, life of the party and fun-loving Caley, lover of all things 'boujee' Kholofelo, and the off-beat wine-loving family man Shamalan.

Genre: Reality, Home Improvement, Reality Makeover

Two Steps Home

Home renovation experts Jon Pierre and Mary Tjon-Joe-Pin, best known from their series Going for Sold, will take a two-step approach to guide clients through the oftentimes daunting process of selling their current house and buying a new one that perfectly fits their needs.

The eight-episode series spotlights Jon Pierre, a real estate agent; and Mary, a designer - who are also busy parents of two - as they help their Houston-area clients sell, buy and renovate to create their ideal home.

In step one, Mary's creative and budget-conscious design ideas will ensure the client's house sells for top dollar.

For step two, Jon Pierre will use his savvy know-how of the Houston market to find the client a new property that meets most of their wish list but needs a few renovations to make it perfect.

Once their current home sells, Jon Pierre and Mary will invest the extra profit to buy and overhaul the family's new home.

In the series premiere, "Sweet Surprise": Jon Pierre and Mary will work with a single mom and teacher who also runs a baking business on the side.

Cost-efficient, but impactful changes, including painting the kitchen cabinets and turning the living room fireplace into a statement piece, will prep her current property to list.

Jon Pierre and Mary will then turn the home-sale profit into personalised renovations for her newly purchased home, including a high-end kitchen with double ovens and a modern staircase design.

Throughout the season, the duo will lead a wide range of clients to a home they never want to leave, from a family that needs a dedicated homeschool space to a couple with a new baby who wants room for the grandparents.

Genre: Comedy-Drama

Gentefied 2

The Morales cousins scramble to save their grandfather's taco shop — and pursue their own dreams — as gentrification shakes up their LA neighbourhood.

Created by two Chicano first-gen writers, Gentefied is a half-hour dramatic comedy adapted from the 2017 Sundance digital darling of the same name.

In this badass bilingual series about family, community, brown love and the displacement that disrupts it all, three Mexican-American cousins struggle to chase the American Dream, even while that same dream threatens the things they hold most dear: their neighbourhood, their immigrant grandfather, and the family taco shop.

Set in a rapidly changing Los Angeles, the Spanglish dramedy navigates important themes like identity, class and balancing insta-fame with translating memes for their parents.

This season, the Morales cousins fight alongside Pop on his arduous battle to stay in the country, all while dealing with new love, new babies, estranged fathers, and of course, tracking down Bad Bunny at a Halloween party.

They'll fight to thrive, but along the way will question where they truly belong in a world made up of borders, family separation, and the potential loss of their beloved taco shop, Mama Fina's.

Because what's life without free tacos?
