Daily SABC3 talk show Trending SA (TSA) has unveiled a new cast for the latest season of the show and fans seem to be loving it.

The week kicked off with viewers being introduced to Lesego Tlhabi, Mo Flava and Loot Love, who will be presenting the show on a rotating basis alongside long-standing host Mthokozisi Cele (popularly known as MaBlerh).

The new changes means that the previous season’s hosts – Elma Smit and Refiloe Mpakanyane – will not be returning.

“SABC3 and the Trending SA producers would like to wish them all the best in their current and future endeavours,” said the channel in a statement.

Smit and Mpakanyane brought a more serious side to the show and producers are looking to head in a new direction by bringing new hosts onboard for season six.

“I am so excited to bring this new season of Trending SA to our audiences; we have kept the premise and the heart of the show. We are still the leaders in social commentary and we love being at the centre of what South Africa is talking about.

And based on social media reactions, fans seem to be loving the change.
