Two of Mzansi Magic’s most topical reality shows are returning to the channel for their second seasons. Abandoned returns on the 6th of April 2022, while the entertaining love-seeking show Pastor Wants a Wife’s second season kicks off on the 6th of April 2022.
While the series deal with very different topics – both shows explore the relatable theme of belonging, Abandoned is about people seeking out the parents who walked away from their children and Pastor Wants a Wife follows men of the cloth seeking love
Hosted by Phumeza Mdabe, Abandoned attempts to reunite children with their long-lost or unknown parents. Mdabe returns for another season, bringing her emotional intelligence, kindness and non-judgmental hosting style, which makes those at their most vulnerable feel safe in her trusted hands.
“Our viewers react strongly to reality shows featuring real stories of real people, whether they are seeking familiar belonging or looking for love. The themes explored in these shows are relatable to many. It’s important that our content is relatable and authentic, and what better way than to see a family re-united or people finding love. We’re glad to keep our viewers engaged while treating our subjects with dignity and grace,” said Shirley Adonisi, Director of Local Entertainment Channels at M-Net.
