Showtime has commissioned a second season of Tangle, the acclaimed Australian drama about two generations of families in suburban Melbourne.

Minor Spoiler: Justine Clarke, Catherine McClements, Joel Tobeck, Matt Day and Kat Stewart are all returning. Due to the plotline nature of the season cliffhanger, so far there is no confirmation on a return by actor Ben Mendelsohn.

As revealed by TV Tonight, Don Hany (East West 101, Dirt Game, Underbelly) is also joining the cast.

The second season has been written by original writers Fiona Seres (Love My Way, Dangerous, The Surgeon), Tony McNamara (Love My Way, Secret Life of Us) joined by Judi McCrossin (Secret Life of Us, The Surgeon) – with Stuart McDonald (Tangle Season One, Secret Life of Us, Summer Heights High, SeaChange) and Emma Freeman (Hawke, Love My Way) directing. John Edwards and Imogen Banks will again produce.

Showtime CEO Peter Rose said, β€œOn the strength of the quality of production of the first season of Tangle, we are thrilled to be bringing a second season of this outstanding and groundbreaking drama to the screen.

β€œThe second series of Tangle lets us explore the twists and turns of love and loss of love within and between the families. It’s a great joy to make” said producer John Edwards.

With significant investment from Austar, the series will begin shooting on February 1st.

  1. Love this show. I’m not big on Aussie drama’s but this one is great and i’m totally addicted. The casting and acting is spot on and the storylines are so real.
    Vince has to stay. Maybe crippled or something – karma? But he can’t leave. He is such a narcissist and the show would be nothing without him.

  2. What a cast! What a script…well done all! Justine Clark…absolutely sensational! Ben Mendelsohns acting was utterly fantastic and is surely the most loathed character on Aussie TV due to his superb performance. Three generations in our household became transfixed and truly addicted relishing the next episode. I have never heard so much verbal dialogue from all the viewers in our household every time ‘Vince’ came on the screen, awesome acting. Each and every one of the teenage actors were supreme and we all agree that ‘Gigi’ is rising star and Queen of Australias next generation of actors!! Have just watched the back to back season 1 all over again and wait with baited breath for the next season. Thank you Writers for finally representing Australian life with such believable dialogue and not over playing or dramatising the storyline like the American shows…much appreciated!

  3. This is John Edwards’ most accomplished series yet. Perfectly paced (despite criticism here), intriguing and beguiling characters and writing. Beautiful performances particularly from Justine Clarke, Ben Mendelsohn and Kat Stewart. I’m very glad it was picked up for a second season as there is too much talent here to waste. Hope Ben Mendelsohn is back for the next season as Vince is a character that I don’t think we have seen in an Australian drama before.

  4. Adam that was a slightly sucky comment. πŸ™‚

    Yes we want to see these series but they wont bring in much revenue. It’s unfortunate but the general public usually like simple, over explained, safe, sappy drama

  5. I thought this series had a bad beginning but a great ending to the first season.
    It progressed a bit slow but then I realised that’s the pace of the show and got used to it .The Melbourne scenery in the show was excellent .Funny seeing Justine Clarke in it and also seeing her in Home and Away Season 1 (on 7 TWO).
    She’s great .

  6. So delighted to hear this! I absolutely loved the finale and can’t wait to see if karma gets the better of Vince. In saying that I think Ben Mendelsohn has done such an amazing job with this character that I really hope he returns with the rest of the cast.

  7. This show falls very short of ‘Love My Way’ unfortunately… Fingers crossed season 2 will find it’s feet quickly… I want so much to like it, but it’s not making it overly easy…

  8. Great news!! Superb drama, not slow at all. Depicts real life and real life goes at a natural pace.

    Every eposide was well produced and might I add better than LMW in many ways, but John can only get better!!

    Congrats John and your team, this is the style of TV that we want to see.

  9. agreed
    i really wasn’t enjoying this to begin with and i so wanted to!
    i loved love my way and adore most of the actors in this, but no one (except for justine clarke) is likeable!
    it is getting better though.

  10. This show has alot of potential but,is a bit on the slow side,reminds me of alot of Australian movies I stuck with it throughout the series but If they can pick up the pace a little it will be great viewing,final episode was very good though
