Renewed! My Brother's Keeper lands 260-episode Season 2

Good news for My Brother's Keeper fans... it continues for Season 2 immediately after Season 1 ends on 18 April.

As you may have seen in the April teasers, repeats of the unfunny Laugh Out Loud were originally scheduled to start once Season 1 ended but now Mzansi Magic has confirmed that it's full steam ahead for Season 2.

The series was originally announced as a 130-episode telenovela, which is half the usual order of episodes when a daily show runs for a year.

We assume Mzansi Magic wanted to see how it did before ordering more so as to avoid "Cancelled!" headlines if it failed to deliver in its first months. 

These are its viewership ratings since its premiere in October 2023: 
Month Viewership
October 2023 744 542
November 2023 667 817
December 2023 909 050
January 2024 763 825
February 2024 688 431

What has the production achieved with these? Mzansi Magic tells us that they've ordered a full 260-episode Season 2, which will run for a year.

What can we expect from it?

Here's a teaser, preceded by a Season 1 quick stix for those who haven't seen it:

Every family has secrets and family members who are all about self-preservation, and that couldn’t be truer than the Shabalala family.

When viewers were first introduced to the family in Season 1 it was plagued by scandals from the get-go, including the death of two sons (one by the father’s hand), ukungenwa of one of the wives, infidelity, hostage drama and ultimately a not-so-happy wedding.

In season 2, Donga, the son who hasn’t played an active role in the family business, ShabaSnacks, locks horns with his father, as he is drawn and forced to intervene and try to save the family business before it falls. 

That, in turn, makes Donga a formidable threat to the power balance in the family as it seems he is the only one that has the power and currency to do so.

What of Nqubeko and his dream to be at the helm of ShabaSnacks and does he remain ivezandlebe as he has always been referred to by the man, he calls uBaba?

On the other hand, Mshengu is exposed by Nqubeko that he was the one who pulled the plug on Khwezi’s life support at the start of the series.

All this, because he found out Mshengu was behind the collapse of his venture to start his own business away from his father’s grip. 

And of course, Fakazile, ‘the angry makoti’ will be turning the tables on the family, challenging some of the preserved cultural practices which will send Mshengu into a tailspin.

Not only her, the other makotis are also up to something and individually taking a stand to assert a certain level of independence within the family.

But how do they do it and is it in the best interest of the Shabalalas or is it self-serving? 

My Brother's Keeper airs on Mzansi Magic from Mondays to Fridays at 19h30. Season 2 premieres on Monday 22 April.
