The news comes just over four months after the show hit TV screens across the country. 

At the end of last year there was widespread speculation that the show was not raking in the ratings. At the time, Mzansi was vague about speculation that the telenovela would end earlier than planned because of the massive dip in numbers, only saying that viewers would still enjoy more episodes.(Read more on that here
