Legacy will not have a season 3 here is why. Mnet is set to pull the plug on hit soapie Legacy, this comes after they made a survey and are trying to conform to their viewers needs and wants.
Entertainment commentator Phil Mphela made an announcement about the channels decision to cut the Legacy saying the show will not came back for a third season and that the second season will end next year.
A statement from the channel read;
“Our viewership surveys guide us to adapt our content to the evolving needs of our customers. Whilst Legacy is a popular show, our M-net 101 customers have indicated that they now want more limited series rather than long-running telenovelas. The success of our local strategy depends on how well we tune into what our customers would like to see on their screens,” says Nomsa Philiso, Executive Head : Programming, Multichoice Group.
Belowe are some of the responses on Twitter.
“Phil , are we ready to talk about how Tshedza shows need new writing teams? Ph*thu and Gw*dion need to allow new writers with fresh ideas just like they allowed Chris Q to write Gomora, they can remain as Executive producers. The River is going to follow , it’s become boring.”
” Not that it is not good. Legacy is good.. pity it was not being viewed by many due to it being on Mnet. “
” Fact is most of SA series or Soapies are boring.
Most of these Soapies if they were in other countries will not get Past Season 1 even 9 episodes.
The Queen each season has 355 episodes of boredom. “
