The sequel to the 2016 box-office success ‘Happiness Is A Four-Letter Word’ has begun production, according to Netflix South Africa.
Thabang Moleya (who also directed the original film) will direct the sequel, which will be executively produced by Bongiwe Selane.
Khanyi Mbau, Renate Stuurman, and Richard Lukunku return to reprise their roles from the first film. Nambitha Ben-Mazwi, Yonda Thomas, Loyiso MacDonald, and Nigerian actor Daniel Effiong are among the additions.
The original film portrays three women — a stylish trophy housewife, a lawyer, and an art gallery owner – as they strive for happiness while preserving their image of success and acceptability, based on Nozizwe Cynthia Jele’s novel of the same title.
The sequel, ‘Happiness Ever After,’ will take up five years later, confronting sisterhood and friendship once more, but this time with a fresh intrigue-filled romantic narrative.
Speaking on the sequel, producer Bongiwe Selane wrote: “I’m super-excited about ‘Happiness Ever After’, and being able to continue the uber-relatable story of sisterhood, friendship and love. Sequels are always difficult because the pressure is that much higher, but they also offer something different and exciting – and the opportunity to land the film on a global service like Netflix is its own reward. It is my sincere hope that the film resonates with audiences, and they fall back in love with their favourites and the new faces too.”
The film is presently under production in Johannesburg, South Africa, and will debut on Netflix at a later date.
