Bennie Fourie says "The writing doesn’t get easier, but the fun multiplies. Viewers can look forward to more hilarious entertainment and pure comedy as well as silly shenanigans from the Fransenburgers. It’s still a privilege to film yet another season at the Fransen home, Kleinkaap Boutique Hotel in Centurion".
