Returning: Gogglebox

2015-08-30_0146

2015 hit series Gogglebox will be back on the air within a month.

The show returns to the LifeStyle Channel at 9:30pm Wednesday September 30th with a Free to Air broadcast at 8:30pm Thursday October 1st on TEN.

Endemol Shine Australia, executive producer, David McDonald said: We’re delighted that all our Goggleboxers have returned for a second season and can’t wait to see their unique and funny take on TV’s latest offerings, while getting a little more insight into their lives.”

The series was renewed for further episodes earlier this year, after winning over sceptical viewers with its simple premise about TV viewers watching TV.

The joint Foxtel – TEN show also set the scene for closer alliances between the two networks.

Gogglebox was the break-out show that had everyone talking, capturing the reactions of 10 ordinary Australian households as they watched the nightly news, argued over politics, cheered their favourite sporting teams and digested current affairs and documentaries.

Each week Gogglebox took the temperature of the nation and left us with some of the most memorable quotes, like Lee & Keith, who shared some sage advice on TV love scenes; Keith “Why is everything in slow-mo?”, Lee “Because it lasts longer!”

Janet (The Kidd Family) asked the question about the Kardashians that’s on everyone’s mind: “Why does anyone want to keep up with them?”

Angie wasn’t a fan of chef, Gordon Ramsay; “Gordon Ramsay hot? I’d rather s*#@ in my hands and clap!”

Anastasia taught us some Greek history; “The Greeks taught everyone how to make everything”, and what it means to be a “Malaka”. She also asked the age-old question “Who is Larry and why is he so happy?”

And when Tom wasn’t sipping on a cocktail he was talking about his drinking and dating habits: “I’ve been blind on a date, but not a blind-date.”

All your favourites from season 1 will be returning in season 2: vivacious friends and housemates, Angie & Yvie; best mates and larrikins with a thirst for life, Adam & Symon; bubbly Greek best friends, Anastasia & Faye; the close-knit Dalton Family; the fun-loving Delpechitra Family; the sports-crazy Jackson Family; the quirky, fun and intelligent Kidd Family; the couple happily married for 30 years, Lee & Keith; Indigenous Art Dealers, Mick & Di; and newly-engaged cocktail-loving Wayne & Tom.

  1. Took it with a grain of salt as I thought this was a stupid idea, but ended up watching the last 2 or 3 episodes of this and I am hooked. Who thought watching people watching TV would be so funny?

  2. Strange time to put it back on, they’ve missed a tonne of aussie shows to take piss out of, its all the US ones coming back in September which we don’t have access too. I guess there’s the new Block & Celebrity Apprentice to watch for them oh and Biggest Loser

  3. I’m a little annoyed that Gogglebox isn’t on TEN Play. I missed a couple of episodes, but when I checked TEN’s catchup service, Gogglebox wasn’t there. Hopefully that will be remedied this season.

  4. Absolutely love Gogglebox. A real little gem. Pleased to see all of my favourites are back for the second season. Having The Bachelorette on air at the same time will give Gogglebox some good canon fodder.

  5. Cast changes are to be expected, they did and still do change/add to the cast in the UK version. Lots of season 1 cast are not in the current season. The UK version also returns to screens (unfortunately not in AUS) in October too. I’m not sure about Tom and Wayne, I feel like the one on the left has little to contribute and the one on the right is aware of the cameras and is acting up more than he naturally would be.
