Adulting S1

Set in Johannesburg, Adulting explores the parallel universes of four varsity friends. Their strong bond has held them together even as their journeys in life have taken them in very different directions. Theirs is the bromance of the decade.

Thembinkosi Mthembu (Mabutho in The River, Junior in The Republic, and King Dingiswayo in the upcoming epic Shaka iLembe) stars as successful businessman Bonga, with Luthando BU Mthembu (Big Brother Mzansi, Ayeye: Stripped, Redemption) as toy-boy Vuyani, Thabiso Rammusi (The Suit) as cheating family man Mpho, and Nhanhla Kunene (Muvhango, Lavish) as hot-headed bad-boy Eric.

Also look out for the likes of SAFTA nominee Winnie Ntshaba (The Herd, House of Zwide, Generations) and Sikelelwa Vuyeleni (Hope, House of Zwide) as Vuyani’s sugar mamma and Eric’s baby mamma respectively; Lungile Duma (The River, Durban Gen) as Mpho’s wife; and Buhle Samuels (Kings of Jo’burg, One Night KwaMxolisi) and newcomer Londeka Shishi as Bonga’s love interests.

Adulting is created by Tshedza Pictures’ Phathu Makwarela and Gwydion Beynon, who’ve won five Best Scriptwriting SAFTAs in the past four years for smash hit shows like The Republic and The River, which was also nominated for an International Emmy.
