Showmax has a spicy show, titled Adulting. The freshly-released series is an eight-part South-African drama that follows the interesting dynamic of modern-day “bromance.”  Here’s your opportunity to meet the cast of Adulting on Showmax.

Phathu Makwarela is responsible for both the writing and production of Adulting, while Menga Nhlabathi is acknowledged for her work as the director of this project. Additionally, it is the first Showmax Original produced by Tshedza Pictures.


According to Showmax, Adulting is a drama that takes place in Johannesburg and examines the parallel realities of four college buddies–there’s a family man, a playboy, an Alpha male, and a single dad.

Even though they have traveled down completely different paths in life, they have managed to stay together thanks to the strong tie that exists between them. In the series, we follow them as they negotiate their occupations and relationships in Joburg over the course of their lives.

The cast of Adulting includes Luthando BU Mthembu (Big Brother Mzansi, Ayeye: Stripped, Redemption) plays the role of toy-boy Vuyani, Thabiso Rammusi (The Suit) plays the role of cheating family man Mpho, and Nhanhla Kunene (Lavish, Muvhango) plays the role of hot-headed bad-boy Eric. Thembinkosi Mthembu plays the role of successful businessman Bonga.

The first episode of Adulting aired on March 20, 2023, and subsequent episodes air weekly on Mondays.
