SABC2 announces the return of the channel’s unique Comedy Series, DIE VLIEËNDE SPRINGBOKKIE, on Wednesday 7th October 2020 at 19:30.
The series which is set in space explores the lives of the mismatched onboard crew in 2070 as they overcome unexpected set-backs despite internal conflicts of leadership and working together to reach C-Earth, so humans can relocate themselves.
After the onboard computer Oom (played by Riaan Cruywagen) took over the Spaceship and steered it towards the sun, a mysterious person managed to save the ship and get them back on track for the Worldwide race to C-Earth. The crew are united after their ordeal, but they are challenged with a new crew member who joins the team. The power struggle for the Captain’s position continues and threatens the race. Will they manage to stand together and reach the sought-after C-Earth?
