Stuck at home? Here’s what you can watch on Showmax this April

There’s no reason to leave the house when there’s this much to stream from the comfort of your living room. Want thrills? The new Stephen King series, The Outsider, will keep you on the edge of your seat. Looking for someone you can relate to? Issa Rae is back for Season 4 of Insecure, and Showmax is getting episodes express from the US! Then there are two new reality shows from Africa Magic: Mercy and Ike, and Judging Matters, coming a little later in the month.

Here are our picks:
Andrea is a seemingly-confident comedy writer, wife, and mom, with zero filters and a tendency to put her foot in it. This laugh-out-loud series is inspired by the life of creator and star Andrea Savage. Binge-watch the whole first season.
HBO’s brand-new true crime documentary series constructs a detailed account of the McDonald’s Monopoly game scam during the 90s that saw the contest’s promotion agency security head “Uncle Jerry” Jacobson and his accomplices rake in $24m in fraudulent profits. The story is told by the participants in the case, including the prizewinners and the FBI agents involved. Watch it now.
Created by Issa Rae, Insecure finds the funny in the black female experience. Catch up on seasons 1-3 on Showmax while you wait for Season 4 to start on 14 April.

Billy Batson is a teenage foster kid who can turn into grown-up superhero Shazam, complete with superpowers. Of course, with great power comes the inevitable great enemy, and Billy, aka Shazam, needs to get a handle on his abilities ASAP if he’s to fight the evil Dr Thaddeus Sivana. See more movies on Showmax.


If the storm doesn’t get you… they will. And by ‘they’, we mean a pair of six-metre alligators who take up residence in the crawl space of a run-down house in Florida, following a hurricane.

The Outsider
The Outsider follows police detective Ralph Anderson, who is still grieving the recent death of his own son when the mutilated body of 11-year-old Frankie Peterson is found in the Georgia woods.
