Final Generations episode to air ahead of hiatus
The SABC has appealed to viewers not to be disheartened by the two-month break.
The South African Broadcasting Corporation (SABC) announced two weeks ago that it would stop the soapie while new episodes are filmed with a brand new cast.
Sixteen cast members were dismissed on 18 August after going on strike to demand higher wages and royalties.
The SABC has appealed to viewers not to be disheartened by the two-month break and says Generations will be back in early December, just in time for the festive season.
The stand-off between the disgruntled actors and the programme's production company ended in a stalemate.
Sepedi show _Skeem Saam _is replacing Generations for now.
The SABC's Kaizer Kganyago says, "We want the people of South Africa to continue watching and support our local content."
While executive producer Mfundi Vundla and his team work to record new episodes, the fired actors have approached the Commission for Conciliation, Mediation and Arbitration in an effort to get their jobs back.
