Isifiso 2

After finally getting the life she always wanted, Bazothini (Nelisa Mchunu) finds herself in a fight she never expected – a fight for her husband Mhlengi (Ntando Mncube).

New character Nokwanda (played by Linda Mtoba) is set to rock Bazothini's world, alongside other new cast members including Ntandazo Mndayi (Gomora) and Thandeka Qwabe (Isibaya).

Last season, after Julia (Zinhle Mabena) told Siboniso (Melusi Yeni) that it was Bazothini who killed his wife - her sister, Nobuhle (Mbalenhle Mthembu) - Bazothini turned the tables on Julia, leaving Siboniso to think that it was Julia who was the murderer.

Bazothini had to take it a step further in order to complete her plan, pushing Julia down the stairs like she did Nobuhle.

True to form, Bazothini frames her brother-in-law Siboniso for Julia's death.

Thinking her golden days are yet to come, and with all her efforts, can she get away with these murders?

Having fought to get up from under her younger sister Nobuhle's shadow, who is now torturing her from beyond the grave, Bazothini is betrayed by the one person she trusts more than anyone on Earth: her husband, Mhlengi.

But this betrayal comes with double jeopardy: it can either unite or divide the new power couple whose solutions often end in tragedy.

This season, we will learn that one wrong move can quickly turn even the best-laid plans into a nightmare.

In the Season 2 premiere: Bazothini is strangled by Nobuhle in a dream, Mhlengi gives Bazothini a car to hide his guilt and Mangobese refuses to work at Thenga Konke.

A Friend of the Family

Based on the harrowing true story of the Broberg family, whose daughter Jan was kidnapped twice over a period of a few years by a charismatic, obsessed family "friend."

The Brobergs - devoted to their faith, family, and community - were utterly unprepared for the sophisticated tactics their neighbour used to exploit their vulnerabilities, drive them apart, and turn their daughter against them.

This is the story of how their lives were permanently altered - and how they survived.

Anna Paquin plays the role of Mary Ann Broberg.

Mary Ann is the mother of three daughters, and her life has felt safe, happy and rewarding until recently.

She has realised too late that she may have missed warning signs and made a terrible mistake by becoming close to her charismatic neighbour Robert Berchtold - and trusting him around her oldest daughter, Jan.

Jake Lacy plays the role of Robert "B" Berchtold, a charming local businessman who appears to be a genial Mormon father and husband.

An expert in manipulation, he puts everyone around him at ease as he carefully plots the abduction of Mary Ann's daughter.

Colin Hanks plays the role of Bob Broberg, Mary Ann's husband and Jan's father.

Bob is big-hearted, kind, and everyone's best friend, the very model of a suburban patriarch.

Destination Fear 4

Paranormal explorers Dakota Laden, Chelsea Laden, Tanner Wiseman and Alex Schroeder level up their fear experiment in their darkest, most terrifying road trip yet.

The fear-chasing foursome embrace the darkness more than ever before - physically, emotionally and psychologically - as they push the boundaries of fear and daringly spend the night inside America's most sinister and haunted locations.

After experiencing hauntings in Europe last season, the likes of which they've never seen at home, Dakota is now taking things to an even darker level - literally.

Not only is he challenging the team with darker hauntings and locations, but he shocks them with the most disturbing experiment yet: removing flashlights from their armour and forcing them to blindly face the shadows of the night in true darkness.

It's the first of many twisted and unnerving new experiments that will test their paranormal theories from the most uncomfortable of situations.

This season's eight hour-long episodes and latest tour de terror take Dakota, Chelsea, Alex and Tanner to the infamous Winchester Mystery House, the "swear they'd never return" Ashmore Estate, a mysteriously deserted Tennessee hospital, a haunted abandoned junior high school, the sprawling Cresson Sanatorium and Prison and more.

In a place this large, Dakota, Chelsea, Tanner and Alex will each have to explore their own building... alone and, in their most terrifying experiment, without flashlights.

But when they encounter an entity that's known to mimic the voices and sounds of people exploring the building, the crew is left shaken beyond belief.
