Ashes to Ashes is a South African telenovela which aired on e.tv from 02 March 2015 to 02 September 2016. The show came into existence in the wake of the prolonged controversy at the SABC 1's flagship soap opera, Generations, which culminated in the dismissal of the entire principal cast. The producers of Ashes to Ashes went as far as hiring some of those actors including acting kingpins Patrick Shai, Nambitha Mpumlwana and Menzi Ngubane with E.tve.tv placing the show in the exact same time slot as the beleaguered Generations.

Ashes to Ashes aired for a season and made way for Gold Diggers before returning for a second and final season. During that period Generations returned from the hiatus and easily reclaimed the top spot in viewership effectively ending e.tv's foray into the 8pm time slot. e.tv did not renew either Ashes to Ashes or Gold Diggers for the third seasons.
