After two chaotic Christmases, will the Sello and Twala families be able to put their differences aside to welcome Beauty and Sbu’s first baby?
Netflix released the trailer to the third installment of the “How to Ruin Christmas” series titled How to Ruin Christmas Season: The Baby Shower. It will premiere on Netflix, December 9th.
How to Ruin Christmas is a South African comedy series following two families, the Sellos and the wealthy Twalas. How to Ruin Christmas: The Baby Shower sees Beauty Sello (Thando Thabethe) and Sbu Twala (Sandile Mahlangu) prepare to welcome their first child.
The official logline says:
“After two drama-filled Christmases, the Sellos and Twalas are relieved to finally not be spending Christmas together. But with Beauty one month away from expecting her first child, the families are forced to come together for her baby shower. What is meant to be a fun, harmless day for Beauty turns into an all-out war between Valencia and Dineo. With Beauty believing that Christmas is officially cursed, Valencia and Dineo have to put their differences aside and save Christmas for the sake of their children.”
In a statement last week the Twala’s said, “We will be hosting a grand Royal Affair baby shower to celebrate the imminent arrival of our grandchild. Born to our son Sibusiso Twala (who graduated top of his class and worked in London) and his wife Beauty. Our family-in-law – the Sellos – will continue to bask in reflected glory as we, the Twalas, prepare to show the world how to host a high-class baby shower.”
The statement further stated “Even Netflix bought the rights to our family’s showstopper event! This puts us firmly in the club of a handful of famous people such as our friends the Obamas who have a storytelling tender with the world’s best streaming service.
Busi Lurayi, Yonda Thomas, Nambitha Ben-Mazwi, Clementine Mosimane and Motlatsi Mafatshe also star.
The first How to Ruin Christmas: The Wedding, centered on Beauty and Sbu’s wedding and premiered in 2020 on Netflix. How to Ruin Christmas: The Funeral was its follow-up and centered on the funeral for Gogo Twala (Nandi Nyembe).
