Ferdie Kruger and the staff of Die Fransen Hotel have returned to kykNET on DStv Now and on Showmax, with new episodes of the fourth season of the mockumentary landing every Monday night from 6 January 2020 on both platforms.
In the previous season, there was a struggle and bustle over who the next mayor would be, Danny’s first play was performed by Die Fransen staff, there was fun with Batcoin and Jaap’s pet sheep caused havoc, but this fresh new season will be even bigger, better and funnier.
There is peace and harmony at Fransenburg now that Ferdie decided to cut short his political career, so short that he’s considering retiring even though he can’t afford to. And, to add insult to injury, the mayor Stephano Stutterheim plans to demolish the hotel to make way for the Mautrain.
Ferdie still considers retiring but quickly realises that he would be easily forgotten, which makes him more determined than ever to leave a legacy that even his great-grandchildren will remember. Jony discovers a new love and this love-lock comes to stay at the hotel and stand in Thomas’ way.
Viewers can look forward to James Borthwick (Ferdie), Schalk Bezuidenhout (Danny), Simoné Pretorius (Jony), Beer Adriaanse (Thomas), Martelize Kolver (Brenda), Mila Guy (Malanie) and De Klerk Oelofse (Jaap) making a return. Quentin Krog joins the cast as Gawie, Jony’s new love.
The cast and crew are very excited about this season. Bennie, writer and producer of Hotel, makes sure that every season is even better than the last. “The writing doesn’t get easier, but the fun multiplies.”
Nouvanaand films are the producers again. “Viewers can look forward to more hilarious entertainment and pure comedy and silly shenanigans from the Fransenburgers. It’s still a privilege to film yet another season at the Fransen home, Kleinkaap Boutique Hotel in Centurion.”
