Viewers of “The Estate” will get to see Langa’s character on screens till late September.

According to the broadcaster, Langa leaves the production to pursue other on-screen interests, which have not been disclosed.

“While it will be sad to see her leave our Estate family, we wish her all the best with her upcoming projects.”

“We would like to thank Dineo for the incredible work she did on the first 3 seasons to bring Mmakoena into the hearts and homes of S3 Millennial viewers.”

Earlier this week, season three of the award-winning popular long running drama made its on-screen return much to viewers’ delight.

“’The Estate’ is key to the incremental building of the S3 schedule with well-produced relevant local drama. The new season does not hold back as we stare into the dramatic issues that plague the nation,” said S3 Channel Head, Pat van Heerden.
