According to entertainment commentator Phil Mphela, the show has been renewed for its 9th season. In August Mphela reported that eTV shows had dethroned the show from its spot as Mzansi's second most watched TV show.

As of July 2022, Scandal drew 5.3-million viewers and HOZ 4.9-million, kicking Generation to 4th place with 4.7-million.
Another show whose future hangs in the balance is The River. The storyline is not impressing viewers and writers have been sent back to the drawing board.

A number of Twitter users have been complaining about the repetitive storyline and it seems actors are slowly noticing that the ship is about to sink. The River used to be one of Mzansi's most watched and favourite TV shows, but lately viewers have been dragging it on social media.

"Season 6 of The River should be the last. They should go all out and produce the best season of the entire run. Fight for money to blow up the mansion is the must.Tshedza is working on a new project anyway so they can afford to let go of The River," wrote Phil MpheLa.
Another Twitter user wrote "The river needs to do better with storyline ya Lindiwe and Zweli's family. it can't be all the time they come back they want to steal money. they deserve better pls #TheRiver1Magic."
Others have even stopped watching the show until writers do justice. "A week ago, I chose peace and self-love and removed The River from my "Continue watching" list. Maybe November will make more sense. Will reconsider then, because wow what a joke it has become," she wrote.
Mnet relased a statement yestetday announcing the departure of Hlomla Dandala who plays Zweli Dikana, Lawrence Maleka who stars as Zolani Dlamini and Ncetezo who plays Paulina Dlomo.

The show wishes them all the best in their future endeavors as they move to greener pastures.

“We would like to thank Hlomla, Lawrence and Tango for their priceless contributions to the show, as well as the incredible work that went into giving their characters life. They all brought professionalism, dedication, presence and charisma to the table, and we have loved working with them on the show. We look forward to seeing what their adventure holds,” says Shirley Adonisi, Director of Local Entertainment Channels on M-Net.
