A new Big Brother returned to our screens this year and Australian audiences couldn’t get enough with each episode averaging 1.34 million viewers (average incl. broadcast and 7plus). The master game player returns in 2021, welcoming a new group of Housemates who will live together for over two months, cut off from the outside world in a custom-built house fitted with cameras and microphones recording every inch of the house and their every move, 24 hours a day. Since farewelling this year’s house guests, Big Brother has been busy and has some surprises for next year’s Housemates. Expect epic challenges, twists and turns and a house full of secrets. Hosted by Sonia Kruger.

BIG BROTHER is produced by Endemol Shine Australia for the Seven Network.

FARMER WANTS A WIFE

Australians fell in love with Seven’s reimagining of Farmer Wants a Wife in 2020. Five farmers wearing their hearts on their sleeves and sharing their love for #farmlife reached six million Aussies nationally. The road to love on the upcoming season – hosted by Natalie Gruzlewski – will be even more romantic with dream overnight dates, luxury country getaways and spectacular group get togethers setting the stage for more life changing love stories. In 2021, five new hard-working Farmers – Sam, Andrew, Matt, Will and Rob – will be on the search for real love. With 99 marriages and 225 beautiful farmer babies worldwide, Farmer Wants A Wife is the most successful dating show on the planet. In Australia alone, the series has resulted in nine marriages and 20 babies.

FARMER WANTS A WIFE is a Fremantle and Eureka co-production for the Seven Network.

SAS AUSTRALIA

SAS Australia

With its premiere episode recruiting 1.2 million viewers nationally, the No. 1 entertainment show for the night and No. 1 for 25-54s nationally, SAS Australia returns for its second season in 2021. This smash hit series sees celebrities take on one of the toughest challenges of their lives, as they attempt to conquer a series of physical and psychological tests set by an elite team of ex-Special Forces soldiers. These star recruits will be cut off from the outside world at a secret base in harsh but spectacular terrain, where they will eat, sleep and train together in punishing conditions, with no allowances made for their celebrity status, age or gender. As they’re subjected to extreme physical endurance, sleep deprivation, interrogation and psychological testing, these men and women will be pushed beyond their limits. Most recruits will reach breaking point and withdraw. Who has what it takes to tough it out to the end?

SAS AUSTRALIA is produced by Screentime, a Banijay Group company, based on a Minnow Films format, for the Seven Network.

THE ALL NEW MONTY

The All New Monty returns with more unforgettable, feel-good, smash hit specials, featuring some of Australia’s favourite celebrities who dare to bare all whilst kickstarting lifesaving conversations about men’s and women’s cancers and the importance of early detection. Over the past three years, nearly 40 Australian celebrities have stepped up to strip to raise awareness for breast, prostate and testicular cancer. The Real Full Monty, The All New Monty, The All New Monty: Ladies’ Night and The All New Monty: Guys & Gals were all ratings winners, with over four million people nationally tuning in to see the nervous novices perform an iconic striptease.

HOME AND AWAY

It’s the No. 1 drama that’s embedded in Australia’s DNA and in 2021, award-winning Home and Away will explore stories of new beginnings, second chances, love, betrayal and revenge. A ghost from the past will threaten to derail one of the Bay’s favourite couples; a familiar face returns to right some wrongs; and when love becomes twisted and trust is misplaced, the community will be torn apart. Plus a special wedding we’ve all been waiting for – all set against the beautiful backdrop of sunny Summer Bay.
