Talk of Offspring return steps up
TEN has never ruled out a return for the hit drama -now it may be about to get its wish.
Chatter is resuming on Offspring‘s chances of going back before the cameras.
The TEN drama ended its run in 2014 but TEN has never ruled out its return, optimistically hoping the universe would align.
News Corp reports the merger of Endemol and Shine, plus Asher Keddie’s break as a new mum, is working in the show’s favour.
“We’re in the process of talking about how we would keep going,” TEN Programming Chief Beverley McGarvey said.
“It is certainly our intention to make that series last as long as possible and as long as people want to keep watching it.”
TEN drama series have thinned out considerably of late, with Wonderland, Party Tricks and Puberty Blues all without further seasons (at least so far). While Neighbours remains a constant, new projects Mary: The Making of a Princess and Brock are both short run.
Offspring did have a well-received finale, so hitting the pedal on new storylines is always a risk. But there will be no shortage of happy fans today, especially if they can manage to pull it off.
