Showmax has confirmed the imminent return of RHOD, following the success of the first season of the show, which reportedly broke the platform’s records.
Showmax took to Twitter on Friday, 17 September 2021, to confirm that The Real Housewives of Durban (RHOD) has been renewed for a second season. The local spin-off of the beloved reality show marks the second edition to be produced in South Africa. This is as the first local spin-off was The Real Housewives of Johannesburg (RHOJ). However, RHOJ was allegedly discontinued due to the cast’s infighting and the broadcaster suggesting it could not finance the new season due to the pandemic.
According to the supporting statement shared by Showmax, “The Real Housewives of Johannesburg was one of the 10 most streamed local series on Showmax in 2019, while The Real Housewives of Durban (RHOD) broke records when it launched on the African streaming service in January 2021. RHOD has since launched with success in 50 countries across Africa, as well as on hayu in 27 territories internationally, including Canada, UK, Ireland, Spain, France, Germany, the Netherlands, Singapore and the Philippines. Season 2 of the hit show will return to Showmax early next year (2022).”
