The Wife' has fans craving more than just three episodes at a time. A week is just too long to wait! Image: @stainedglasstv1/Instagram

Showmax just released the next three episodes of The Wife and peeps are already crying for more. We think the three-episode vibes need to be reassessed, and ASAP!

--

Hlomu and Mqhele's wild romance has viewers hooked. While they are not always pleased with everything that goes on, their thirst is never quenched.

THE WIFE' LEAVES VIEWERS BEGGING FOR MORE It's Thursday and that means release day for The Wife. Some have already smashed all three episodes and cannot believe they have to wait a week for more. Waking up at 5:00 to get it all in before work, is a lifestyle!

Social media has been heaving with fans begging the producers to give them more. The Wife is totes a binge-worthy series that keeps viewers on the edge of their seats.

--

After binging the newest episodes before the sun even came up, fans were on social media screaming their sorrows. The Wife viewers are committed.

TAKE A LOOK AT SOME OF FANS' PLEAS This thing of 3 episodes izong dina Now that I ve watched today s episodes It s like I don t know what to do with my life Thursday is too far #TheWifeShowmax pic.twitter.com/Eo6zIKxPKA

FANS DISCUSS THE NEW THE WIFE' EPISODES The newest three episodes of The Wife are a lot. Hlomu's dad gave Mqhele a beating that left many shaken. Mqhele is an abuser, and while he deserved what he got, some feel two wrongs don't make a right.

On the other hand, the Majola brothers have fans yawning at their antics. Some feel the producers need to spice things up a little before they fall asleep, shame.

The fact that Hlomu is standing by Mqhele despite what he has done, is beyond. This hit home hard for many as so many women unwaveringly stick by their abusers. Sis needs to get out of there!

The Wife never fails to pack a drama-filled punch. Viewers are always left with their jaws on the floor and anxiety levels through the roof.

Taking to social media to vent has definitely become a coping mechanism for avid watchers. A week is a long time to wait and peeps need their online support group.

TAKE A LOOK AT SOME OF THE COMMENTS I Have Never Been A Fan Of Mqhele (book or series) but he took that beating like a man. Last week I Hated Him I ll Probably Hate Him Again Next Week. This Week..

Not Hlomu choosing a man that beat her up over her own family

But Hlomu's dad really gave Mqhele a good beating #TheWifeShowmax #TheWife
