Netflix has confirmed that one of its local originals, How to Ruin Christmas, is set to return for a second season. In the comedy series, we were introduced to two families who immediately became most people’s favourite dysfunctional, not-so-guilty pleasure – The Twalas and the Sellos, who together were the messy, yet relatable onscreen family we never knew we needed!
It’s great to know that when Netflix said: “Made by Africans, Watched by the World” they meant it. That ethos has given us the opportunity to create authentically South African characters that we can relate to and tell stories that reflect our realities. In the first season, we were able to give the world a taste of our customs and traditions when it comes to weddings and how we, as South Africans, celebrate Christmas. More importantly, we were hopefully able to spread some joy and laughter throughout the globe, on the back of the tough year that was 2020.
Gearing up for another season honestly feels like getting ready to “go home” for Christmas, where you get to see and catch up with your favourite, and messy, family members. And no families are messier than the Sellos and the Twalas, who are now, bound in matrimony. So, it goes without saying that you should expect more drama, laughs, tears and all-around festive season joy in the new season.
Netflix looks forward to bringing some of our favourite characters back to life and spreading a little more Christmas cheer this December, in true, Ramaphakela Siblings’ style.
