Skeem Saam is a ground-breaking and captivating youth drama series.

The exhilarating voyage on the river to adulthood never stops. Series three of Skeem Saam starts in winter, a time of transition. For some of the friends in Turfloop, life has become almost unrecognisable. Coming of age has a tendency to do that to individuals and to a community. How does the exciting journey to adulthood continue? Tbose struggles to balance being a student and a father; and the question of whether he and Mapitsi can be together leads both of them down many winding, heart breaking lanes.

Katlego has to face the realisation that having Granny and his mother in the same house brings challenges he never anticipated facing at this stage in his life. Kwaito finally sees the light at the end of the tunnel that was his barren love-life. The problem is once the floodgates open he has no control over them. He finds himself embroiled in love-triangles that threaten to destroy everything that is precious to him. This season Kwaito meets Lelo; a woman who changes his life in ways no one could ever imagine. The Kunutu’s face seemingly insurmountable challenges as MaKunutu struggles to carve out a place for herself in a community that fears she will one day try to avenge her husband’s untimely death. Things get especially complicated when she comes to the realisation that her daughter Rachel has fallen for the wrong guy. This is just the beginning of the transitions we are about to go through. This season we spend time with the residents of Turfloop every weekday. We watch their lives unfold on a daily basis. Tbose and Kwaito transcend from High School to University. They spread their wings, leave the nest of Turfloop and venture into the bright dazzling lights of Johannesburg, where more escapades await them. While the pace of the two boys’ lives spiral uncontrollably, their parents discover that the empty nest syndrome is not just a concept.
