Season 1


Roomies is a South African comedy-drama television series which explores the interpersonal relationships of five millennials trying to navigate adulthood.

From being ghosted, consent, sibling relationships, parental hang-ups, partying, making money and being cool, these are all on their minds as they strive to achieve happiness on a day-to-day basis.

Roomies showcases the underlying humour that comes with trying to achieve some of the so-called realistic and unrealistic milestones of life such as marriage, being healthy, making lifelong friends, and achieving a fulfilling career.

The series will also shine a spotlight on the question that has plagued society for centuries: can men and women be friends and if so, what does that look like?

How does Naledi (Felicia Mlangeni), a young chef with her life planned out, handle a crossroads in love and career?

During her interview as a sous chef at one of Joburg's top restaurants, she learns that her long-term boyfriend is not just visiting home, but has married his high school sweetheart and is forcing her out of the flat they shared.

As a result, she fails her interview and a broke Naledi seeks the comfort of her bestie Tsholo (Nomalanga Shozi).

The pair move into a loft with three guy friends who have their lives about as well figured out as Naledi and Tsholo do.

What could possibly go wrong?

The series stars Felicia Mlangeni, Unathi Mkhize, Nomalanga Shozi, Mbasa Msongelo and Ishmauel Songo.

The supporting cast includes Zola Nombona, Siphiwe Mtshali and Zama Ngcobo.

Roomies is produced by Clive Morris Productions and 32Done Productions, with executive producers Sihle Mthembu and Simone Ross.

The series was created by Sihle Mthembu, who is also the head writer of a writing team including Nonzi Bogatsu, Precious Sithole, Nina Ncube and Spha Madondo.

The directors are Khayelihle Dom Gumede and Sihle Mthembu.

The title song was written and composed by Lwandile Nyekuza and Normvl Sound (PTY) LTD.
