The show was highly-anticipated and did not disappoint when it premiered on Mzansi Magic on Monday evening.
Impressed fans flooded social media with messages applauding the show.

Users also gave love to actress Lorcia Cooper, giving her performance kudos and claiming that she would carry the show going forward.

Lockdown shares a time slot with popular SABC 1 soapie Generations:The Legacy and Twitter users were quick to predict that the show would soon bring the death of Generations.
