The drama series boasts an impressive cast to push the envelope on a relevant and controversial topic affecting many Africans today. It’s a story about the one social group that is the building block of African society, which is family. The cast includes beloved South African stars including Africa Movie Academy Award winner, Tina Jaxa, who plays the pastor’s devout wife - Evelyn Zikode - a classic matriarch who guards her nest like a hawk.
Some of South Africa’s favourite actors, such as Sthandiwe Kgoroge, critically acclaimed Safta winner, Seputla Sebogodi, Yonda Thomas, Pearl Modiadie and Sparky Xulu will also appear in the tempestuous daily drama. New-comers Nkone Mamejta and Toka Mtabane will be launching their careers on the show.
Redemption premiered on 26 September and runs Monday to Thursday at 6pm, repeating at 9.30pm and the omnibus on Sundays at 4.30pm.
