TEN confirms its twenty-something drama is not returning due to low ratings.
Disappointing news for fans of TEN drama Wonderland today, with confirmation the show is not returning.
The FremantleMedia drama, which had two seasons across 2013 – 2015, starred Brooke Satchwell, Michael Dorman, Jessica Tovey and Ben Mingay.
In today’s Results Presentation, the show was not included as returning in 2016.
A TEN spokesperson told TV Tonight, “Wonderland was generally well received and we were happy with the production, but we just failed to find a sufficient audience.
“Long-form series are now without doubt the hardest to launch successfully.”
Most of the 2015 episodes were under the 500,000 audience mark in Overnight metro numbers.
In recent weeks TEN has announced the return of Offspring for 2016, with the telemovie Mary: The Making of a Princess due in coming weeks.
The Brock miniseries will also air in 2016, while Neighbours continues on ELEVEN.
2016 returning shows also include MasterChef, I’m a Celebrity Get Me Out of Here, Gogglebox, SharkTank, The Great Australian Spelling Bee, Have You Been Paying Attention?, The Project, The Living Room, Studio 10, The Bachelor, The Bachelorette, Family Feud, Bondi Rescue, Big Bash League, Formula 1, V8 Supercars, Rugby Union, Modern Family, NCIS, Law and Order: SVU, Limitless, Scorpion, NCIS: New Orleans, Madam Secretary, The Good Wife, The Graham Norton Show and CSI Cyber.
TEN’s 2016 Upfronts take place in late November.
