About the Show

Single Guyz is a South African television sitcom created by Ryan Metcalfe and Thomas Gumede and produced by Quizzical Pictures which follows three best friends looking for love in the age of Facebook, navigating the world of dating whilst dealing with idiotic advice and failed attempts at being macho.

The entire cast of Season 1 was replaced by a new cast in Season 2, which follows three new friends going through the same issues. The title of the show also changed from Single Guys to Single Guyz.

Season 1

Single Guys is the story of three best friends trying to navigate the world of dating.

Khaya, petrified of women, is the uptight owner of a failing African themed DVD store. Taps is a smooth-as-silk playa while their over emotional roommate Zanele can't stop falling in and out of love on a daily basis.

You'd think it would be easier to be a Single Guy when there are three of you but it's harder to get a girlfriend when there's always two others peering over your shoulder.

Idiotic advice, failed attempts at being macho, trying too hard to be cool... it's not easy being young and looking for love in the age of Facebook.

Season 1 stars Thabo Malema as Khaya, Thomas Gumede as Zanele and Motlatsi Mafatshe as Taps.

Season 2

Khaya, Zanele and Taps have grown up and moved on. Three young and very different men move into an apartment together. The new trio - Mazi, Siyanda and Skhindi - are Single Guyz 2.

It's a new year and these guys have to figure out how they are going to survive, make money and find love and success in Braamfontein, Joburg.

As Season 2 gets underway, Zanele - who has grown up and moved on - rents his apartment to three new single guys: city-slicker SK, cheeseboy Mazi and type-A med student, Siya. They form an unlikely trio who navigate the highs and lows of single life while living together in the vibrant social hub of Braamfontein.

Season 2 stars Rea Rangaka as Mazi, Vincent Mahlangu as Siyanda and Tumi Matila as Skhindi.

Single Guyz, produced by Quizzical Pictures, was written by Ryan Metcalfe with staff writers Gilli Apter, Mongi Mthombeni and Zee Ntuli. Directed by Amanda Lane, the first season was executive produced by Harriet Gavshon, Mariki van der Walt and Nimrod Geva. The title track is by Mo & the Dark Knights.
