e.tv Announces Rhythm City Cancellation

Nov 23, 2020

e.tv has announced the cancellation of its long-running daily drama which has been on air for over 13 years.

The very first episode of Rhythm City aired on 9 July 2007 as a replacement for Backstage. Managing Director at e.tv, Marlon Davids said in a statement:

“e.tv continues to look forward to fulfilling its mandate of producing exceptional and relevant local content, and the production has successfully achieved its part of the obligation throughout the past 13 years.

Rhythm City has secured its place in e.tv’s history books, and a legacy mark has been made. We want to extend our gratitude to the entire production staff, crew, and cast for their incomparable craft.”

He cited working on a reality show with his wife as one of the reasons for leaving while the channel said they were making way for upcoming actors. In February 2020 the legendary Jamie left Rhythm City after 13 years on the soapie.

Just last month, Mohale Motaung made waves after his debut on the show. Although the channel won’t divulge much right now, it has been confirmed that Rhythm City will be replaced by another local daily drama in 2021.
