After months of speculation the most feared decision has been made and Mzansi Magic’s popular telenovela Isibaya has faced the chopping board.

Isibaya is currently on it’s 8th season, but according to the Daily Sun the show has not been renewed for season 9.

Nomsa Philiso, the Channel Director for local entertainment channels at Mnet confirmed the news.

She said it is always sad when a show that was popular and loved ends as is the case with Isibaya.

She went further to say times change and television is about adopting and adapting. Nomsa said as Mzansi Magic they are thrilled about the partnership with Black Brains Production.

Black Brains Production are the producers of the new coming telenovela Diepsloot. Isibaya has failed to attract more viewers thus leading to it’s canning.
