Old school cool will meet new generation swag as the second season of competition reality show The Coolest OG’s launches on Netflix this week. The show launches on the streaming platform on Wednesday, 26 April.

Hosted by Siyabulela Deli, also known as TaFire, the show sees 10 senior citizens, aged between 60 and 80, as they compete for a R100 000 cash prize and the title of the coolest OG by participating in a series of fun and exciting challenges with the help of their grandchildren. The challenges include fashion, music, acting, cooking and gaming.

Netflix video explains: “Each week, a guest judge checks out their performances and chooses the winning and losing team. The OGs then have to eliminate a contestant from the losing team. The contestants will face different challenges in each episode to see who will ultimately win the title of the coolest OG at the end of the season”.

The panel of judges includes Tresor, Candice Modiselle, Ms Cosmo, Macc Gee, Mpumi ‘Msakazi’ Mlambo, Neo Nontso, Benny Afroe, Primo, Touchline, Liopelo Maphathe and late celebrity chef Lentswe Bhengu-Mafoko.

The Coolest OG’s season two previously aired on SABC 2, along with its first season, in 2021, before its international format acquisition by French TV production and distribution company, Banijay.

“We’re thrilled to bring The Coolest OG’s to Netflix, reaffirming our commitment to delivering entertaining formats and embracing digital platforms,” Rebelintown Productions founder Jimmy Muteba said in a press statement.

Rebelintown Productions is the production company behind The Coolest OG’s.

“As we continue to innovate and expand our offerings, we’re excited about the future and our upcoming projects,” Muteba continued.
