Rethabile Ramaphekela, creator and Executive Producer of the How To Ruin franchise shares what fans can expect in this brand-new spin-off. “With this spin-off, the audience can expect different families coming together but with the same drama they loved so much from How to Ruin Christmas. The audience will once again be able to relate and recognize themselves and their family members, through the colourful characters in the series.”

On having the opportunity to create a spin-off on Netflix, Ramaphakela said, “Never in our wildest dreams did we imagine that How to Ruin would turn into a franchise on a global platform and we’re so grateful that we have the opportunity to tell African stories on Netflix. Stories that are a celebration of us and who we are. We hope to bring even more joy and laughter with this spin-off.”

How To Ruin Love: The Proposal will be available on the 31st of May, 2024, only on Netflix.
