Rhythm City is coming to an end.

The channel released a statement announcing that the soapie that has been running for 13 years will be ending next year.

“Today, e.tv is announcing its decision to conclude production on its long-running daily drama Rhythm City. The show will air its last episode on 16 July, 2021 at 7pm, marking the end of an era for the much-loved daily,” read the statement.

The decision to decommission the show was part of a business strategy, which includes reviewing a show’s on-air life cycle, the channel said.


Managing director Marlon Davids explained that e.tv continues to look forward to fulfilling its mandate of producing exceptional and relevant local content, and the production has successfully achieved its part of the obligation throughout the past 13 years.

Rhythm City has secured its place in e.tv’s history books, and a legacy mark has been made. We want to extend our gratitude to the entire production staff, crew, and cast for their incomparable craft.”

To replace the soapie, e.tv is adding a new local daily drama.
