Brendan Dahill, ABC Television Head of Programming said, “Nowhere Boys is an exceptional series which continues to garner accolades and popularity. In an ABC TV first, this multiplatform simulcast provides a fantastic opportunity to introduce this high calibre Australian drama series to a broader ABC audience, in particular families and those who love a good sci-fi action series.”

One Comment:

  1. It is a waste just burying Nowhere Boys away on ABC3.

    The ABC has targeted over 60s on Sundays with repeats of Midsomer Murders and Compass as lead-ins for the News. So this is a change.
