From incredible shows to big moments and wedding bells, this is what went down in 2017.
We could be clichéd and ask “where has the year gone!?” but we won’t. Instead, we’re going to share 17 things that happened in the world of entertainment this year.
So let’s take a stroll down memory lane to see some of what happened in 2017:
1. We were gifted the series of Big Little Lies – who remembers how the first episode was available on DStv.com before it even aired on M-Net? Now we’ve got news of a season 2! It's not too late to binge watch season 1 on Showmax either.
