With the launch of DStv's new channel 1Magic, came a host of fresh content on our small screens.
Drama series, "Unmarried" was part of that package and premiered on February 2 and we're kind of hooked.
The show is about the lives of three young female friends living in Johannesburg, as they deal with the pressures of juggling marriage, motherhood, relationships, and their careers. The drama revolves around three different women who represent a diverse cross-section of South African life, from the township to the suburbs, to the high-end apartment lifestyle of the "super blessed".
It stars Renate Stuurman, Tembisa Mdoda and Keke Mphuti and is the brainchild of Ferguson Films.
Set in the City of Gold, we get to know three completely different women brought together by their friendship. Brenda, played by Stuurman is the perfect definition of #relationshipgoals with her husband of nearly ten years. She boasts a fierce corporate career at a highly fashionable private bank, where she's quickly rising in the ranks, despite the fact that she is one of the few women in senior management. While, one of her closest friends Lesego, played by Mphuti is the hottest in the group, she's used her looks to get what she wants. Thembi, played by Mdoda happens to be the only one of the three with children. Having fallen pregnant at 17 by her childhood sweetheart Bongani played by Nyaniso Dzedze.
On the latest episode, viewers watched as Brenda discovered that her husband had been living a double life and has an 11-year-old son.
Here are some of the reactions.
