Lockdown S1-5Watch the boxset now
South Africa’s grittiest prison drama takes us deep into the dark world of a women’s prison. In its first four seasons, Lockdown raked in the SAFTAs, including the award for Best TV Drama in 2019 and Best Drama Script in 2018.
In Season 1, we were introduced to the prison and key characters, including resident bully Tyson and matriarch MaZet. Later, we met prison governor Deborah Banda, who’s no less criminal than the worst of her charges.
The latest season is now streaming exclusively on Showmax and reveals even more revelations and explosive storylines than in the previous four seasons, which are also available to stream on Showmax.
Sophie Lichaba joined the cast of Lockdown S5 as a psychiatric nurse, and all your favourites (or at least, the ones who survived) also returned for what became the best season ever. All 10 episodes of Season 5 are now streaming, as well as all four previous seasons, on Showmax. Season 5 is also streaming on DStv Now.
