Kelly Khumalo has just dropped the trailer for Season 3 of Life With Kelly Khumalo, the hit Showmax Original reality series that won the 2021 SAFTA for Best Soap Structured Reality TV Show. The new season launches first and only on Showmax on 5 July 2022, with new episodes every Tuesday.
Season 3 picks up in April 2022 with #KellyKhumalo trending on Twitter again, with the release of a true-crime documentary series about the death of Senzo Meyiwa and his trial about to start. Despite the ongoing conspiracy theories, Kelly’s career has never been better: her SAMA-nominated album The Voice of Africa went gold, the AFRIMA-nominated Empini became the biggest hit of her career and went quadruple platinum, Esphambanweni went double platinum and Ngathwala Ngaye went platinum.
Produced by G.O.A.T (Dineo’s Diary) and directed by Kuda Jemba, with Graeme Swanepoel as showrunner, Season 3 of Life With Kelly Khumalo shows Kelly at her rawest and most real. Kelly has been viewed as an enigma by many, but this season’s tagline is, “Y’all gon know about me.” As she says in the trailer, “This is my life; this is my truth.”
This season, we’ll see Kelly back where she belongs: on stage, in front of a packed live audience – something that hasn’t been possible since Life With Kelly Khumalo first launched in August 2020. Fans will also see her working on her most anticipated album yet, while growing her business empire, which already includes Controversy Gin and Kelly Khumalo Skin by Bioquantine.
She’ll also spill the tea on how she really feels about Senzo’s family; Jub-Jub’s Mother’s Day posts on social media; and Brenda Mtambo, not to mention cancel culture. We’ll see her continuing therapy, parenting Christian and Thingo, and working on her relationships with her mother, Ntombi, and sister, Zandi.
