Yizo Yizo is a South African drama series which aired 39 episodes across 3 seasons from 27 January 1999 to 1 July 2004. When the first season of Yizo Yizo went on air in 1999 it was not like anything South African television had seen before; it was celebrated as it was rebuked. It was a daring and groundbreaking drama series and it went on to cement its place in South African television history while earning praise from overseas markets.
