The Checkout replays
The Checkout's extended season will consist of 4 "Best Of" replays.
But it has emerged that this will include 4 “Best Of” specials.
An ABC spokesperson told TV Tonight the run is as ordered.
“The same approach was taken for both 26 episode series of The Chaser’s War on Everything in 2006 and 2007. In the producers’ experience, this is the best way to deliver a longer series, especially one as intensively produced and demanding as The Checkout,” they said.
“It’s fairly unusual for audiences to catch every single episode of a show, and the material in The Checkout remains current and popular – as the success of The Checkout Snack Size, which airs before the 7pm news, has shown.”
These episodes will air from Thursday 24 April.
