Deon Meyer’s Trackers is top on Showmax

Trackers, the five-part adaptation of bestselling author Deon Meyer’s internationally acclaimed crime novel, has broken viewership records across the board. It’s the top show to stream on Showmax right now, and is also the most popular show on M-Net in 2019. And it hasn’t even completed its run yet: Trackers’ final episode is streaming at the same time as the M-Net broadcast on Sunday, 24 November at 20:00.

As well as taking the overall top spot on Showmax over the past 30 days, Trackers has also outstripped the competition on M-Net itself, surpassing numbers for the channel achieved by international favourites such as Game of Thrones and Chernobyl. Trackers has even attracted more eyeballs than a much-loved M-Net institution – the Sunday night blockbuster movie premiere.

“A trailblazing, high-end production”

“We are over the moon about Trackers’ phenomenal performance to date,” says Yolisa Phahle, CEO of General Entertainment. “With this first co-production between M-Net, HBO’s sister channel Cinemax and Germany’s ZDF, we set out to create a trailblazing, high-end production that would enthral our MultiChoice customers as well as global audiences. It’s wonderful to know that Trackers will soon also be shining the spotlight on our magnificent actors, behind-the-scenes talent and breathtaking landscapes to a wider audience.”

More than 1000 television professionals ensured that Trackers raised the bar in terms of cinematic excellence. Sisanda Henna’s chilling performance as Inkunzi, a snazzy but ruthless villain, has already landed him a leading role opposite Megan Fox in the forthcoming film Rogue.

If you haven’t seen Trackers yet, binge the show so far in preparation for the finale.
