Skeem Saam will no longer shoot new episodes as from 1st of March. SABC has shared that it has decided to put on hold the shooting of new episodes by its prime time show Skeem Saam. The broadcaster shared that they have come to an agreement with the show to produce the episodes that have already been produced. Hence as from 1st of March the show is not going to shoot any episodes until their contracts for the next season is renewed.
The spokesperson of the broadcaster said that there are no plans in place yet to renew the contract however Skeem Skaam need not to worry as they are going to continue airing new episodes that were already produced as well as the omnibus repeat episodes.

We don’t know why SABC decided to stop the production of new series but a few weeks ago it was revealed SABC that Skeem Saam had lost million of viewers in the last quarter of 2020 as if that was not bad enough it’s ratings also dropped. This might be probably the reason why they have been asked to take a break so that they can go back to the drawing board.
However this will not in any way affect the broadcasting of the show as the remaining shows will be aired ad usual with no disruptions in transmission. However it is unfortunate that the producers of the show as well as the cast members of the show will go for an uncertain period without pay as SABC said it will only pay for episodes produced and delivered not talent payment.
