It’s the month of love and we’re loving all things local. There are so many homegrown movies and series coming to you on M-Net, DStv, and Showmax, that you’ll be spoilt for choice. Take a look at what’s on and what's coming up.

The drama and deception continue in Legacy with fan favourites like Dineo, Lexi, and Petra, as well as the characters you love to hate like Msizi and Angelique. There are also new characters to keep the intrigue coming – like Charlie, who recently returned home...or should that be "home"? Watch the moment below.

Watch Legacy Mondays to Thursdays at 19:00 on M-Net channel 101.
Catch up with DStv using any connected device.
Binge watch on Showmax.
