Source say when the cast were told of the soapies end they were called in to do a basic gathering, they thought they were going to be congratulated for weathering the Covid-19 storm so well. However it was a different story as they were told that the soapie had come to an end and most of them were thinking were do I go from here.
The soapies ending could not have been motivated by financial reasons as it had 5.2 million viewers in 2020 and was among the country’s ten most-watched soapies, it was the second most watched soapie.
