…. now East West 101 will take its leave.
SBS’ acclaimed drama season will come to a close with its third season, set to premiere at 8.30pm Wednesday, April 20.
The action-crime series starring Don Hany, Aaron Fa’aoso, Susie Porter and Rena Owen has consistently netted awards including Logie Awards, AFI Awards, AWG Awards and more. Recently it was nominated for the NSW Premier’s Literary Awards, and nominated in the TV Series Drama Category of the Monte Carlo Television Festival.
The final, seven part series explores the ramifications of the war in Iraq and Afghanistan through crimes committed in Australia. According to the synopsis, “What happened during the war in the opium fields of the Chora Valley, and the collateral damage to civilians in Tikrit, comes home to the streets of Lakemba and the malls of Cabramatta.”
Update: SBS has said Producers always wanted to do 3 series and the decision was theirs.
