Mark your calendars, gather your friends and family because Mzansi Magic is bringing back the warmth, laughter, and love with the return of two fan-favourite shows. Date My Family season 11 and Our Perfect Wedding season 14 are back to spice up your Saturday nights, starting 11 November at 18:30 and 19:30.
Date My Family (DMF) continues with season 14, and is here to change the way you spend your Saturday nights. DMF offers an alternative twist to conventional dating shows. Here, singletons aren't just finding a date, they're experiencing the full package, one family at a time. By interacting with potential partners' families, they get an insider's look at what life might be like with their future love interest. This season promises more fun, surprising revelations, and possibly the most memorable dates yet.
Season 14 of Our Perfect Wedding (OPW) kicks off with episode 9, making a grand entrance. Re-joining the Saturday line-up, OPW allows you to witness love stories ending in the union of hearts. Each episode, one engaged couple takes us on their journey, ticking off their wish list to achieve their dream wedding. And with the vibrant trio of hosts across episodes – Nonkanyiso “LaConco” Conco, Khaya Dladla and Swankie Mafoko – each segment is guaranteed to be filled with charm, style, and heartfelt moments.
Why Saturdays are extra special
Mzansi Magic has always been your home for local entertainment, and with these two shows taking the prime time slots where Idols SA reigned one last time, expect plenty of emotions, drama, and pure bliss.
