The River is a popular South African TV series that was originally released on the 29th of January 2018 and has continued to air to date. It may not be as old as soapies like Muvhango and Generations: The Legacy, but it is carving its own niche in the already saturated television industry and gathering loyal viewers. Big names in the South African movie industry like Sindi Dlathu, Presley Chweneyagae, Lawrence Maleka, Hlomla Dandala, and many others are part of the cast of the series which tells the story of the affluent mine owners of Pretoria.
In order to keep viewers anticipating what to expect in the following months, the movie producers have tried to keep them updated by releasing teasers before the beginning of the new month. These teasers are not the type you should see as spoilers because instead of informing you of all that will happen in each episode, it just makes you want to watch it already. Want to know what will happen in the September 2021 edition of The River? If yes, then keep reading.
An Overview Of What We Saw In The River In August 2021
In the August 2021 episodes of The River, Cobra makes the decision not to listen to anyone’s opinion about who he wants to rebuild his life with, but his decision does not go so well and unfortunately lands him in trouble. Instead of rebuilding his life with Angelica, which was his desire, he now has to find a way to always escape from her plans against him.
Cobra is not the only person in August who made a decision that ends up with consequences – Nomonde does the same as well.

At the end of the month, we saw Cobra react to his nasty surprise and Lindiwe and Zolani making efforts to ensure that Andile does not regain his memory.
How often will Cobra continue to escape from Angelina’s wrath? Can Andile regain his consciousness? All these and more may be unveiled in September, so don’t miss an episode.

The River Airs On Mzansi From Mondays To Fridays
The River has a running time of 22-24 minutes and airs on Mzansi Magic from Mondays through Fridays by 7 pm. The series which is created by Phathutshedzo Makwarela and Gwydion Beynon tells the story of Lindiwe Dlamini-Dikana, the Khanyisa Diamonds mine owner, her flamboyant lifestyle, and how far she is willing to go to protect her family.
In order to properly depict the life of mine owners and the poor people who live around the city, the series is shot in Pretoria, which happens to be the center of South Africa’s mining sector. The Khanyida Diamond mine which is located in the poor township of Refilwe slowly became a curse disguised as a blessing.
The TV series also tells the story of the Mokoena family; Malefu Mokoena and her three children (Thuso, Dimpho, and Itumeleng) who are residents of Refilwe. Malefu tries to keep it a secret that Tumi was actually adopted after her adoptive father, Thato Mokoena, who is now late was found by a riverside. This may be the inspiration for the name of the movie “The River”, however, it is not clear if that is the case or not.
