Ashes To Ashes comes to an end

Ahes to Ashes

TX: Monday to Friday, 8PM

After two successful seasons of high drama,’s telenovela Ashes to Ashes comes to an end with a nail-biting finale on Friday 2 September at 8:00PM.

Ashes to Ashes is set against the backdrop of Namane Funerals, a family-owned business in Tembisa. The funeral parlour is headed by husband and wife duo, Mandlakazi and Selogile Namane, who inherited it from their parents. The pair have created an empire with the assistance of their children Tsietsi, Reba and the late Monwabisi Namane. On the surface, all looks well, but season two saw the Namane family haunted by a deep, deep dark secret about the murder of Nomzamo Mazibuko. The details were constantly swept under the carpet to keep the family intact, but the truth always comes to light in the end.

“We are pleased with the success of Ashes to Ashes and humbled by the loyal following that the telenovela enjoyed over its two-season run,” says Marlon Davids, Managing Director of “Part of our strategy is to ensure that we keep the 8PM slot fresh, with gripping, authentic local content that resonates across South Africa. As a result, we will be saying goodbye to Ashes to Ashes and introducing a new telenovela, which will debut on Monday 5 September at 8PM.”

As Ashes to Ashes races towards its gripping conclusion, the Namane family will face a series of shocking events, as more scandals unfold, threatening the unity of the family. The season finale will be brimful of heart-wrenching, emotional moments as the household races against time to save Mandlakazi from Bab’Hlongwane. Will Tsietsi agree to use his daughter as bait? How will the family take Selo’s confession about the murder of Nomzamo Mazibuko?
