Axed: Rescue Special Ops won’t be renewed

The Nine Network has confirmed it will not be renewing Rescue Special Ops for a fourth season.

A Nine spokesperson told the Sunday Telegraph, “Rescue has been a much loved drama and Nine has decided this will be its final season.

“It ends while  it’s still going strong.”

This year saw the third season boosted from 13 episodes to an impressive 22 eps. with episode 16 set to air tomorrow night.

Produced by Southern Star, its producers Julie McGauran and Sarah Smith are also producing Wild Boys for Seven -one of its first non in-house productions in a long time- plus a telemovie Dripping with Chocolate for BBC Worldwide.

The exit of Rescue follows that of Sea Patrol after 5 seasons but Nine’s drama slate is still quite buoyant with Underbelly: Razor, Beaconsfield, Kerry Packer’s World Series Cricket all yet to air, and a rumoured new drama from Screentime tipped to be announced.

New telemovie Sundowner will also be produced by Cordell Jigsaw.


  1. I have just finished watching RSO season three n was devastated to find out there will be no more season y axe such a brillant show.. best show ever and was left unfinished pplllllllllsssssssss bring back

  2. boo channel Nine!! Rescue Special Ops is the best show they’ve had on tv for a long time!! Bring it back!! There should have at least been a season 4 to wrap things up properly and give us a proper ending!!!

  3. I am very dissapointed seeing this show being axed, whoever has axed this should go bury their head in a sandpit then bring it back as this show was so good! I hope it gets a new manager and comes back as this was brilliant and should of done more then 3 Seasons. I want their autographs 🙁

  4. plzzz bring rescue special ops back on cus that is the best show in the world me and my mum like it very much if u dont put it back on i will cry ha lol plzzz im beggin u ha lol <3 it 🙂

  5. Seriously gutted they have axed it. Best show on tv in a long time. The actors have great chemistry together and like others have said, plenty more storylines to be had.
    From a UK fan

  7. i love this show ive watched all 3 seasons and was looking forward to a new season i hate how they put shitty shows on years after years but take all the good ones off thats why people have foxtel cause our tvs wont put our favourite shows ob

  8. Have only recently discovered this fab programme and now purchased the first two series and can’t wait to watch them. It is the best program on tv – Pleeassse make series 4!!!!!!!

  9. As UK viewers we have really enjoyed RSO and can’t believe they have axed it already. As many other viewers have said, there was still ample storylines that could have been used before it became stale. Bring it back Channel 9 and at least resolve the current storylines properly!

  10. I live in Switzerland and Resuce is mine life… I like how they work and they friendship are all special…. Why!!!! I would like Channel Nine will think about hit or made a great ending,in wich we can think gut…(this is great), I like this ending!!! In season 3 the ending is a litte messy!!!
