After two successful and acclaimed seasons, Mzansi Magic’s undercover thriller drama Housekeepers is back with what promises to be another nail-biting season, premiering on 4 April.

Starring Thando Thabethe, who reprises her role as Linda, and Paballo Koza as her brother Mtho, the series follows an agent solving criminal cases – while undercover as the house help. And while Linda has massive crime to uncover in season 3, her biggest fight is her desperate attempt to save Mtho’s life.
In varsity and adjusting to his and his sister’s new financially secure reality, Mtho is accused of a shocking crime. Can Linda prove his innocence while keeping her true identity hidden from her dangerous new employers?
The Housekeepers season 3 cast includes Gabriel Simphiwe Mini (Zabalaza), Ernest Ndlovu (Gomora, Isibaya), Andile Mxakaza (Isibaya), Noxolo Dlamini (Isibaya), Fezile Makhanya (Rockville, Unmarried, The Queen), and TV presenting legend Zandi Nhlapho.
“We’re happy to keep giving viewers shows they love, and Housekeepers is one of the series that has kept our audience enthralled since its premiere. It’s a very South African twist on the classic detective show, and it’s so much more than a crime series. It’s relevant and features social commentary and a lot of heart, while still being entertaining. The show is as multifaceted and as intelligent as our audience,” says Shirley Adonisi, Director of Local Entertainment Channels at M-Net.
Throughout season’s 13 new episodes, we watch Linda in the middle of a balancing act – it’s the detective versus the sister. Having made a promise to their mother to keep Mtho safe, Linda is wracked with guilt and, since she couldn’t save June, she wants to save her brother by any means necessary. This leads her down increasingly morally ambiguous paths. After all, what would you do to save your loved ones given the chance?
The series is produced by the multi-award-winning Ochre Moving Pictures, and the season 3 supporting cast includes Kenneth Nkosi (Reyka, Rockville), Connie Chiume (Gomora, Black Panther) and Chichi Letswalo (Lingashoni, Isithembiso).

Housekeepers viewers sang Thando Thabethe's praises on the second season of the show for her impeccable acting prowess. The manner in which she delivered her artistry left viewers on the edge of their seats.

Expressing her gratitude at people's positive responses, she thanked viewers and described her role as a 'spiritual awakening.'

"On Monday we bow out. I am grateful for the honor of being able to play Linda Ndlovu once more...how this character has changed not only my approach in current work but in life in general, cannot be expressed in words. I have hurt, and I have healed...this was above me. This was a spiritual awakening...I am forever grateful!!!

"Thank you to my legendary co-stars, the crew who immersed themselves in this story, to @krijaygovender for holding my hand from season 1, to @portiagumedesa for seeing ME, for believing ME I love you so very much 🙏🏾. Thank you South Africa for walking with us, I ask that you show up in numbers come 8PM, MONDAY," she wrote
