Good news for Nine with new drama series House Husbands being renewed for a second season.
Ratings for the drama starring Gary Sweet, Firass Dirani, Gyton Grantley and Rhys Muldoon have remained buoyant following the series launch of 1.37m viewers.
“I couldn’t be happier that Australian audiences have taken House Husbands to their hearts and made it the number one drama in the country,” Nine’s Director of Television Michael Healy said.
“I am thrilled to confirm a second series of House Husbands will go into production with the same acclaimed cast and crew.”
This is the first drama for Nine to win a second season since Rescue Special Ops in 2010. Subsequent dramas, dominated by procedural plots, The Strip, Cops LAC and Tricky Business all ended after one series but Underbelly has been a consistent performer since 2008. The series by writers Ellie Beaumont and Drew Proffitt has resonated well, the first successful melodrama series for Nine since McLeod’s Daughters.
Directors of Playmaker Media, David Taylor and David Maher, add: “We couldn’t be more pleased our House Husbands are back for another series.
“It is a huge credit to our dedicated team of writers, cast and crew that we’re back for more… see you at the school gates!”
New episodes begin filming next year.
