Netflix announced its latest romantic comedy, Yoh! Christmas, set to debut on 15 December 2023. The six-part series follows perpetually single Thando (Katlego Lebogang), who’s lucky and successful in everything – but love. This is a detail her family, and society, never let her forget.
After one too many Christmas Eve family dinners relegated to the kiddies’ table, Thando is determined to change her fate. Things will be different this year, as she announces she’s bringing a boyfriend home. The only snag is she doesn’t have one…yet. With only 24 days left for her to find her man, Thando is forced to reckon with a muddy and ever-shrinking dating pool.
The new series stars an ensemble cast of industry titans such as Sthandiwe Kgoroge, Hlomla Dandala, Lerato Mvelase, Dorothy-Ann Gould, Tiffany Barbuzano and Sello Motloung. It also puts a global spotlight on talents Siya Sepotekele, Siv Ngesi, Altovise Lawrence, Ntobeko Sishi and Didie Makhubane, among many others.
