With Season 2 of the multi-award-winning telenovela Gomora ending on a bloody cliffhanger, Season 3 follows one of the show’s lead characters as she goes down a destructive path. The drama won’t be in short supply, and adding to it are five new characters joining the telenovela.
We’ve already met Duncan Leballo (played by Aubrey Makola), the serious and suave wealthy record executive. He’s a narcissist with a thing for young girls and made his debut in Episode 1 of Season 3.
We've also meet Bra Mike’s son, Mike Junior (aka June-July, played by Tiisetso Thoka). Under the wing of hostel king Qhoqhoqho, he’s been doing petty crime since the age of 13, and he’s here to make sure Mam'Sonto won’t be able to enjoy life after the tragic death of his father.
Episode 17 introduces Nolo Makinta (played by Jessica Sithole), a failed slay queen traumatised by all the things rich men have put her through. Naturally, her disdain for men draws her to another wounded woman – Thathi. Will their new relationship lead them further into darkness?
Joining Gomora High as a new teacher is Andile Faku (Played by Moshe Ndiki), who we meet in Episode 25. Gambling has ruined his life – he lost his lavish Sandton life and cushy private school job because of it. He thinks his new gig is beneath him, but his sense of humour makes him hard to dislike.
And finally, in Gomora there’s Nkosinathi Cele (played by Fezile Makhanya, who we meet in Episode 42). Charming and blessed with the gift of the gab, he can talk his way out of anything. The high school principal is also an authoritarian who clashes with parents. Trapped in an unhappy marriage, he soon meets the woman he knows he should have married. And seeing as she’s recently single, who knows what could happen?
Gomora Season 3 is off to a cracking start and will only get hotter. Tune in on Mzansi Magic (DStv channel 161), weekdays at 19:30!
