Seven could be showcasing more of New Zealand in its local dramas.
TV Tonight understands Wanted will be filming part of its second season in the land of the long white cloud.
Producer, co-creator and star Rebecca Gibney is currently in NZ adding picturesque shots to Instagram (below) -a spot of location hunting perhaps? Seven declined to confirm specific details for the next season.
The series, produced by Matchbox Pictures in conjunction with R & R Productions, begins principal photography in late September.
“We are beyond excited with the commissioning of the second series of Wanted. Geri (Hakewill, co-star) and I get on like a house on fire so we can’t wait to return to life on the run. She’s the perfect partner in crime,” she said.
Seven’s Head of Drama, Julie McGauran, said: “We are delighted to announce the second season of Wanted. Clearly, audiences fell in love with the humour, warmth and sense of adventure that is the heart of the series.”
Matchbox Pictures Managing Director, Chris Oliver-Taylor, added: “Matchbox is thrilled to be working with R & R and Channel Seven as we continue the journey of Chelsea and Lola into a second season, helping bring to life Rebecca’s and Richard’s amazing characters and story.”
Gibney’s former Packed to the Rafters co-star Erik Thomson returns in NZ-filmed 800 Words on Tuesday August 23rd.
