Season 1 of Alone was the most successful show SBS has ever commissioned, with more than 1 million viewers each episode. 

In February, SBS predicted the second season would outperform the first, reaching mass audiences across broadcast TV and BVOD. 

Adam Sadler, director of media sales at SBS, is confident the new season will build on the large mass audiences that flocked to season one, which he claims beat out rivals such as Lego Masters in the key 25-54s demographic.  

“In Australia, there are a handful of shows that are guaranteed cross-platform ratings juggernauts – Alone Australia is now firmly cemented as one of those shows, delivering audience across both broadcast TV and BVOD,” said Sadler.

“Season 1 of Alone Australia delivered massively for advertisers with a series average of 1.24m with BVOD out rating traditional broadcast for some episodes, and most importantly, Season 2 in New Zealand promises to be even bigger.

“A lot of people might have missed it at the time, but in the all-important 25-54s demographic, Alone Australia was seeing off bigger and more long-running TV franchises to become the no.1 most-watched show over 28 Days. This show is unique in the Australian media landscape – it truly reflects TV viewing in 2024 – as a mass reach audience vehicle with a demographically pure audience focused on 25-54s.”

Alone Australia is produced by ITV Studios Australia.
