According to TV critics and commentators, 1Magic drama series "UnMarried" is one of the most watched shows on TV, and we can totally understand why.
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.
TV RATINGS: UnMarried is the no.1 local show on the new @DStv channel, @1MagicTV.— Phil Mphela (@PhilMphela) February 28, 2018
With 27, 095 viewers pulled for its most watched episode so far, UnMarried is the no.1 local programme and second overall most watched show on #1Magic.
The drama revolves around the three charactrs; a diverse cross-section of South African life – from township to suburbs, and on to the high-end apartments of the "super-blessed".
Renate Stuurman stars as Brenda, alongside Tembisa Mdoda as Thembi and Keke Mphuti as Lesego. The series is another brainchild of Ferguson Films.
In the latest episode, Brenda gets cold feet when it was time to act on her desires, and Lesego's plan to capture another rich man fails. You can watch it here.
Twitter lit up after the episode was aired on the DStv channel, with many comparing their squads to the trio.
