Connie Ferguson and Rapulana Seiphemo are set to reprise their iconic roles on the SABC1 soapie,Generations: The Legacy as guest stars for a few episodes.

Generations was once the most-watched television show in South Africa, but it was rocked by a highly publicized cast exodus in 2014, which led to the creation of a new show, Generations: The Legacy.

"Viewers can expect all the class, charm and poise that these two have brought to the roles of Tau and Karabo," a press statement read.

"It promises to be an epic month, with the drama of the show demanding the intervention of two important characters. As part of the larger Generations: The Legacy family, we can assure viewers that this is by no means [the] last or least that we'll see of the two."

Since the show began in 1993 fans have been glued to their TV sets every weekday at 8pm, making it one of the most watched series in the country with an initial viewership of more than six million.

Over the years we've seen A-list actors like Katlego Danke, Sophie Ndaba, Seputla Sebogodi, Winnie Ntshaba and the late Menzi Ngubane among others, entertain us with 30 minute episodes of intrigue, drama, laughter and tears.

Not much has been revealed about their storylines as yet, but there is no doubt they will bring the heat.

Most recently, the pair starred as sworn enemies turned lovers Harriet Khoza and Hector Sebata in Mzansi Magic (DStv 161) telenovela The Queen. The show ended its seventh and final season in January.

Catch Connie Ferguson and Rapulana Seiphemo next month on "Generations: The Legacy" on SABC1 at 8pm.
