Good news for Rockville fans – Rockville, SA’s most-loved drama series, will return for Season 5 in April with actress Thulisile Phongolo joining the cast.
In the new season, Thulisile Phongolo will play the role of Buhle, an unemployed law graduate from rural KwaZulu-Natal. Buhle’s life is turned upside down after an attempted abduction thrusts her into a sophisticated criminal network run by Kalashnikov, played by Siyabonga Shibe.
The last four seasons tell the story of JB (Shona Ferguson), a high-flying underworld figure involved in the business of running a prostitution ring at his top-class cigar lounge in Sandton. The business dominated the underworld scene and caused a rift between JB’s middle-class family and that of his working-class in-laws.
Season 5 will explore how JB and his wife, Lindi (Enhle-Mbali Mlotshwa), have to turn Hotel Paradiso into a money spinner again after a death at the hotel dries up their coffers and puts many livelihoods on the line as bookings dwindle.
