FANS of the hit Showmax series “The Mommy Club” are in for a treat as the local streaming giant have added a spin-off series.

“The Mommy Club: Sugar & Spice”, which will premiere on the platform next month, centres on nine affluent mothers within Durban’s Indian community.

The reality show was produced by POP24, who also brought viewers “The Mommy Club”, “This Body Works For Me” and “Bae Beyond Borders”.

If the trailer, which released this week, is anything to go by, streamers are in for a wild ride.

The short clip provides snippets of the women’s opulent lifestyles, their extravagant gatherings and their accomplished partners and spoiled children

It also highlights the drama which unfolds as the ladies face health issues, infighting as well as lots of jealousy and gossiping.

“Everyone has their cup of tea, whether it be spicy or whether it be sweet,” one of the women said in the trailer.

Another added: “I don’t think it’s anyone’s responsibility to save anyone.”
