The new show to come from the Tshedza Pictures stable Adulting which has been billed ‘the bromance of the decade’ is finally here and the viewers are loving it. The show is also the first Showmax original from the production company.

The show according to Zalebs provides a male alternative to popular shows like Unmarried and Girlfriends and is filling the gap that was left by Ayeye. The series follows four friends who met whilst they were in university and we see how they navigate their very different lives against the backdrop of the bustling city of Johannesburg.
