Showmax's first telenovela The Wife is back to give fans a glimpse behind the scenes of one of the most talked about show in the country. 

It has dropped the trailer for The Wife: Behind The Veil, an eight-part special that takes fans on a journey to find out more about the Zulu brothers and the women who love them. 

The  first two episodes of The Wife: Behind The Veil can be streamed on August 5, with two new episodes every Friday until August 26.

The episodes brings fan faves back to revisit the questions that kept The Wife at the top of Twitter every Thursday for two seasons.

When season two wrapped up tweeps couldn't help but crown the O.G's of the first season Mqhele (Bonko Khoza) and Hlomu (Mbalenhle Mavimbela)'s chemistry as the best on prime time TV.

The first episode in November 2021 took fans on a roller-coaster of emotions with the love story between these two, abuse, cheating scandals, marriage to having a child.

Fans will be excited to know in episode 1 of the special, Bonko and Mbalenhle Mavimbela (Hlomu) talk about their characters’ toxic love story and how the nation fell in and then out of love with Mqhele
