Heavy-weight South African doyennes Xolile Tshabalala and Nandi Nyembe add their experience to round off a stellar cast for the sequel.
The movie is a romantic drama that follows the glittering lifestyles of the much-loved girlfriend crew, a trio of Joburg-based professionals as they grapple with relatable issues of relationship stress, parenting, and family tensions in the way that every South African woman understands.
Creator, Bongiwe Selane explains:
“I’m super-excited about Happiness Ever After, and being able to continue the uber-relatable story of sisterhood, friendship, and love. Sequels are always difficult because the pressure is that much higher, but they also offer something different and exciting – and the opportunity to land the film on a global service like Netflix is its own reward. It is my sincere hope that the film resonates with audiences, and they fall back in love with their favorites and the new faces too.”
The release date will soon be announced.
