The Queen : New Dets on Whos Coming In and Whos Going Out

On Saturday Ferguson Films announced that Season 5 is coming for Mzansi Magic’s famous “The Queen” . For this season they mentioned that they were going to introduce a new family to the soapie, with about 4 new actors

“We will be introducing a new family in season 5, a father and two daughters, who are going to be a thorn in someone’s flesh,” -Ferguson Films.

In the same statement, Shona confirmed the return of Khoza, who plays Shaka Khoza. The character’s death in the soapie had triggered a lot of online traffic but he is set to return

Jessica Nkosi  and Menzi Ngubane, both recenty who was killed off in Isibaya a month ago, are both joining The Queen.

“There’ll also be another surprising addition in Tembisa. We can confirm that we have five new leads coming on board, and one return that we like to call the comeback kid that’s SK Khoza,” said Shona.

The veteran actor also confirmed that Nkosi had also agreed to join soapie following her exit from Isibaya.

The Fergusons also shed some light on the latest worrying developments at the soapie, which saw several big-name actors exiting the production.

“The reality is that in the nature of story-telling, especially in long-form, characters come and go. Some are designed to stay for the foreseeable future, and some to serve a specific story arc, exit, and maybe return at a later stage, depending on how the story develops. This is the case with all shows, and is not exclusive to The Queen,” he said.

Sunday World reported last week that Dineo Langa (nee Moeketsi), who plays Kea, and Cindy Mahlangu, who plays Siyanda, were leaving the soapie.

Zenande Mfenyana, who plays Goodness Mabuza, is also leaving due to pregnancy.

The three actresses’ departure from The Queen follows that of veteran actress Rami Chuene and Setumo Motsoaledi, who played Mmabatho.
