South African telenovela Rockville has been renewed for a fifth season by MultiChoice-owned channel Mzansi Magic and will hit the screens in April.
The show was created in 2013 by South African TV production duo Connie and Shona Ferguson and produced by their production company, Ferguson Films. It is written by Phathutshedzo Makwarela, Gwydion Beynon, Linda Bere, Chisanga Kabinga, Pamela Power and Sibusiso Mamba.
Rockville follows the story of two black families who represent the middle class and the working class. The storyline revolves around their ongoing feud over a series of misunderstandings and problems.
“Rockville was our very first project as executive producers and laid the foundation for Ferguson Films to start building Mzansi Magic’s first-ever drama series after the channel was launched. We’re looking forward to welcoming the squad that started it all back and introducing new and exciting characters and talent. More details about the cast of Rockville 5 will be announced soon,” said Connie Ferguson.
