About the Show

Unmarried is a South African television drama series created by Ferguson Films which follows three young female friends living in Johannesburg as they deal with the pressures of juggling marriage, motherhood, relationships and their careers.

The drama revolves around three different women who represent a diverse cross-section of South African life, from the township to the suburbs, to the high-end apartment lifestyle of the "super blessed".

Set in the City of Gold, three completely different women are brought together by their friendship:

Brenda (Renate Stuurman) is the perfect definition of #relationshipgoals with her husband of nearly 10 years. She boasts a fierce corporate career at a highly fashionable private bank, where she's quickly rising in the ranks, despite the fact that she is one of the few women in senior management.

One of her closest friends, Lesego (Keke Mphuthi) is the hottest in the group - she's used her looks to get what she wants.

Thembi (Thembisa Mdoda) happens to be the only one of the three with children, having fallen pregnant at 17 by her childhood sweetheart Bongani (Nyaniso Dzedze).

Unmarried is an M-Net Original Production, executive produced by Connie Ferguson and Shona Ferguson for Ferguson Films. Lauren Nell is the producer. The head writers are Gwydion Beynon and Phathutshedzo Makwarela, with a writing team including Duduzile Mabaso, Linda Bere, Nelisa Ngcobo and Lebogang Mogashoa.

The series director is Alex Yazbek and the theme music and score is by Joel Assaizky.

Main Cast

Brenda (Renate Stuurman)

At 33 Dikeledi, who was born and raised in Soweto, seems to have it all - the life that every young woman dreams of. Raised in a nuclear family, she grew up with a sense of security and her ambitions were nurtured from a young age.

Lesego (Keke Mphuthi)

A go-getter of note, Lesego never let anything get her down until she came into her own as a young woman and discovered that she was a lot more beautiful than most.

Thembi (Thembisa Mdoda)

Thembi was always the star of the trio, the prettiest girl in school and the brightest one in class. She lives with her high school sweetheart Bongani.

Bongani (Nyaniso Dzedze)

A township guy who knows that his role is to provide for his family. He is Thembi's live-in partner and the father of her two children. He is a good man; some say he is a unicorn, as men like him no longer exist.

Donald (Fezile Makhanya)

Donald is the quintessential entitled man, who believes that he can have whatever he wants. He is defined by his masculinity, which struggles to adjust to his wife Brenda's success.

Vuyo (Stevel Marc)

Believes he is God's gift to the female species. He is as charming, as he is arrogant and he knows how to use that to his advantage.
