Cape Town – Pasella is adding three new presenters when the Afrikaans SABC2 show returns for another season from this Friday, 5 February.

The Afrikaans lifestyle and entertainment magazine’s timeslot is changing – from 18:00 to19:30 on Fridays where it will serve as a lead-out for the SABC's Afrikaans TV news bulletin.

Pasella moving to 19:30 and replacing the Sesotho news bulletin moving to 18:00, will serve as part of a new programming bridge to the Afrikaans game show Noot vir Noot at 20:00.

Joining the existing line-up of Pasella presenters Paul Rothman, Dieter Voigt, Melinda Bam, Vicky Davis, Lynelle Kenned and Simon Witbooi known as Hemelbesem, are Mishka Patel, Sean-Marco Vorster and Carmen Pretorius.

The show from Tswelopele Productions also responsible for SABC3's Top Billing, used to run uninterrupted all year round on SABC2 until March 2013 when the SABC decided to break it down into shorter interrupted seasons which returned in the new format in February last year.

Mishka Patel, a Presenter Search on 3 finalist is finally getting TV screen time. The former Miss South Africa finalist will interview actress Lindie Stander and painter Sandy Esau in the season's first episode.

Sean-Marco Vorster was a presenter on SABC3's NAweek magazine show in 2015 and had roles in local Afrikaans films like Die Windpomp, Strikdas and Lystraf.

Soap star Carmen Pretorius who appeared in Isidingo and Binnelanders has also done musicals and appeared in films like Lien se Lankstaanskoene.

Afrikaans personalities who will appear in the new season include Fanie de Villiers, Kurt Darren, Annie Malan, Faf du Plessis, Len Muller, Nianell and Dozi.

The first episode will be visiting Langebaan, with Hartbeespoortdam, Stellenbosch, Pretoria, Riebeek-Kasteel, Witrivier and Hermanus in upcoming episodes.
