The wait for Rockville Season 4 is finally over! The upcoming season – which begins next month – promises higher drama, more action, and twisted plots. It will also see the inclusion of topical socio-economic issues and TWO villains!
The famous series, which contrasts the worlds of northern Joburg, with the adrenaline-filled, bustling streets of Soweto, sees fan favourites Shona Ferguson, Connie Ferguson, Gail Mabalane and Boitumelo ‘Boity’ Thulo return to their respective roles alongside other senior cast members.
Season 4 also ushers in the debut of new characters. Sello Maake Ka-Ncube will be doing what he does best as the new villain, Rolex, while Themba Ndaba will be playing the crooked police officer, Ngema. Another welcome inclusion is Ayanda Thabethe as the sultry temptress, Aliyah. She has even been putting in the hours by taking pole dancing classes!
“The theme this season is ‘journeys to redemption’. Mavis tries to redeem broken family bonds, while JB, who has lost everything, is desperate to reconnect with loved ones in the midst of startling historic revelations,” said M-Net’s Head of Drama, Reneilwe Sema in s statement.
In a first for Rockville, the upcoming season will tackles one of the pertinent socio-economic issues on South African’s mind – teenagers dating older, married men – or ‘blessers’ as they are popularly known.
“This season is set apart from previous editions, in that we now have two main villains, whose paths eventually cross – making for some intense clashes,” added Sema .
Rockville season 4 premieres on Mzansi Magic (DStv channel 161) on Sunday, 10 July at 8PM.
