Season 2 of The Wife has returned after a one-week hiatus, and tweeps aren’t loving the new episodes as they’re expected more. However the story line has become flat and boring.
Season one’s storyline took several unexpected twists and turns, leaving some fans of the book series perplexed, while others welcomed the new twists.
Fans took to social media to share their thoughts on the first three episodes.
One tweep said, “Also, I expected so much from the first 3 episodes. They were honestly boring. Hoping the next won’t be so disappointing.”

Season two is based on Dudu Busani Dube’s best-selling novel Zandile The Resolute, and tells the love story of the pack’s leader Nkosana Zulu and Zandile.
Tweeps can’t get enough of Nkosana’s (Mondli Makhoba) gentler and softer side and they can’t wait for more of the #loveliveshere vibe he’s giving off.
“uBhut’omdala is such a calm gent please, the way he regales his wife with not only words but his actions (the little touches and kisses of affection and assurance) is really beautiful and enthralling,” one tweep wrote.
Although the last episode ended on a climax with a steamy sex scene, betrayal, and murders, fans had high expectations for the first three episodes.
Season two picks up where season one left off, with an episode that led many viewers to despise Hlomu after her betrayal of Mqhele.
During its 13-week run, the show trended at the top of Twitter every Thursday.
Khanyi Mbau already has The Wife viewers eating out of her hands.
One fan said, “I love this natural look they gave Khanyi. The last movie I watched with her I found the makeup distracting and her facial expressions were lost in it. I know this is the after-prison look, but I hope they stick with less makeup for her character.”
I never loved Zandile(book) but now her chemistry with Nkosana is making me love her.. Now I feel like I’m betraying Hlomu and Naledi (My favs) #TheWifeShowmax
