The River is one of the channel’s most popular locally produced shows and has been receiving rave reviews for its diverse range of talented actors and non-stop drama. Long-standing fans may have had to miss a few episodes here and there (there are more than 100 of them, after all), but now that all previous episodes are available on Showmax, there are no excuses for missing any of the action.
And if you’re only hopping onto the River bandwagon now, you get to binge-watch every episode from the very beginning. You’ll meet the Dlamini's and the Mokoena's for the first time, and find out how the discovery of a large diamond virtually on their doorstep both divides and unites them.
