Renewed: Better Late Than Never

Celeb travel series featuring Henry Winkler & William Shatner has been renewed for a second season.


US celebrity travel series Better Late Than Never, which is coming to Nine, has been renewed for a second season.

The series sees veteran performers Henry Winkler, William Shatner, Terry Bradshaw, George Foreman and comedian Jeff Dye exploring Asia on a group excursion. The group travels to Tokyo and Kyoto, Japan; Seoul, South Korea; Hong Kong; and Phuket and Chiang Mai, Thailand.

Based on the Chinese / Korean series, Grandpa Over Flowers, it averaged 8.1 million US viewers in Live+7 day numbers.

Paul Telegdy, president, alternative and reality group, NBC Entertainment, said, “Like everyone else, we fell in love with all the adventures Henry, William, Terry, George and Jeff faced as they educated themselves and adapted to new customs in foreign cities.

“This innovative format allows for unprecedented escapades that cut through the clutter and grabbed viewer’s attention. We can’t wait to see what places they explore and how they adapt to their environment in season two.”

Winkler, Shatner, Bradshaw, Foreman and Dye are all set to return, although no location has been set for the second season.

Nine is yet to announce a premiere date for Australia.

  1. How does Nine get the show? It is produced by Universal Television (owned by NBCUniversal), therefore it should have gone to Seven under the output deal. Unless that deal does not exist anymore?
