Cancelled! Durban Gen to shut down after two and a quarter seasons

Durban Gen's ECG machines will go quiet, staff must find other work and patients will need to go to Addington hospital from January 2023.

The series has been issued a death certificate by and will end after two seasons and three months - similar to what's happening with Getroud met Rugby and The Queen's cancellation where each has additional episodes to end the show.

The cancellation of Durban Gen isn't a surprise because it's always needed surgery for its suspect medical credentials which have left many a viewer with major side-eye. 

This statement from eMedia: 

“ can confirm that the hospital drama Durban Gen will be coming to an end in January 2023. The decision to decommission the daily drama is part of a business strategy which includes the on-going review of the on-air life-cycle of all our shows. continues to look forward to fulfilling its mandate of producing exceptional and relevant local content, and the production has successfully achieved its part of the obligation throughout the past 2 years. Durban Gen first aired in October 2020.”

Durban gen applied for a death certificate a long time ago, first can they explain how Zandile was able to move into Precious' house, then there is the confusing issue of the two matrons, the baby swapping story and Phumeza gets to keep her job. Its all a confused mess!

So many things glaringly didn't make sense in terms of the storyline, story continuity and research (or rather lack thereof). 

But this show had the most beautiful sets I've seen. Especially the hospital set, clean and proper.

was about damn time. only watched this show for its first six months and i was bored. Too messed up for a medical drama. They tried but it was not coming out great. I thik Wounds is better by far from this trashy show. medical dramas require taking breaks in between like Grey's Anatomy.
