Showmax premieres season three of Chin Up!, starring Lara Lipschitz

Published on

Popular streaming service, Showmax, has announced season three of its popular South African comedy, Chin Up!, starring former YoTV presenter, Lara Lipschitz.

Chin Up! is a comedic series directed by and starring Lara Lipschitz. The series follows Lara, a struggling actress, as she moves back home to Johannesburg from Cape Town and readjusts to the intense Johannesburg film and television industry. Season three will see Lara learning to stand up for herself as a professional actress whilst combating the condescending opinions of her peers. Chip Up! also incorporates budding relationships and friendships, which allows for a quintessential romantic-comedy series.

In a statement by Showmax on Thursday, 24 October 2019, Lara commented on her role as lead actress, writer and director, and how she developed the series from scratch. She stated, “The first two seasons we did with no money, but with the third season, I did a crowdfunding campaign, which helped a great deal. Don’t take yourself too seriously when it comes to your creation. You also can’t worry too much about what people are going to say. Do it, put it out there, learn and get feedback.”

The lead actress made her television debut as a presenter on YoTV in 2007, before featuring in the popular weekday drama, Isidingo. She is also known for her role of Gabi in Showmax’s Tali’s Wedding Diary, where she played Tali’s best friend. Lara premiered season one of Chin Up! in 2013, and followed it with season two in 2016. Three years later, the series is back and will continue following the journey of the struggling actress.

Chin Up! is available for streaming on Showmax.
