South Africa - Happiness Ever After is the exciting soon-to-be-released Netflix sequel of the uplifting South African drama, Happiness is A Four-Letter Word.
Fans will see our queen-crew back at it, seeking love, happiness and success as they juggle careers and ambitions in fast-paced Johannesburg. The delightful romantic drama features returning favourites Khanyi Mbau, Renate Stuurman, and Richard Lukunku reprising their roles as Zaza, Princess and Leo respectively. They are joined by new cast members Nambitha Ben-Mazwi, Yonda Thomas, Daniel Effiong and Loyiso MacDonald, who bring another layer of intrigue for fans who have come to love the Happiness storyline.
Heavy-weight South African doyennes Xolile Tshabalala and Nandi Nyembe add their experience to round off a stellar cast for the sequel.
The movie is a sophisticated, thoughtful romantic drama that follows the glittering lifestyles of the much-loved girlfriend crew, a trio of Joburg based professionals as they grapple with relatable issues of relationship stress, parenting, and family tensions in the way that every South African woman understands. From belly-laughs to moments that hit you in the feels and every “shine-gal-shine” moment in-between, you will be taken on a wonderful journey that will have you grabbing the popcorn, the tissues, and of course, the wine.
This is all due to Creator, Bongiwe Selane and Director, Thabang Moleya’s vision and passion for showcasing a cast and crew of true black excellence, whilst staying true and authentic to the narratives and characters exhibited in the film.
“I'm super-excited about Happiness Ever After, and being able to continue the uber-relatable story of sisterhood, friendship and love. Sequels are always difficult because the pressure is that much higher, but they also offer something different and exciting - and the opportunity to land the film on a global service like Netflix is its own reward. It is my sincere hope that the film resonates with audiences, and they fall back in love with their favorites and the new faces too.” comments Selane.
