Seven has confirmed the second season of Seven Year Switch will premiere on Easter Monday.
Seven isn’t waiting for ratings to launch the show, strategically getting a head start at the end of a long weekend.
Season 2 of course faces all kinds of new judgments, not just due to the current focus on Seven’s own staffing culture, but because the participants in the first season did not know they would be changing partners when they signed up. Now the show has aired and the format is exposed, what does it say about the participants happy to be a swinger on TV under the premise of “relationship therapy?”
Cast your eye over this press release for choice network spin…
Channel Seven’s most controversial series, Seven Year Switch, promises to shock when four new couples on the brink of separation participate in an experimental marriage with a total stranger in order to save their relationship.
This innovative experiment, called “Switch Therapy”, is radical, totally unpredictable and life-changing.
Viewers will learn about each of the couples – how they met, how they fell in love, how their relationship took a turn for the worst and why they are willing to risk everything to mend it.
The brave couples at a crossroads in their relationship will live with a like-minded new partner in an experimental marriage, to help them recognise how their own behaviour is impacting their relationship – and decide if they would be better off with someone else.
Relationship experts, Jo Lamble and Peter Charleston, will guide the couples through the therapy process as they adjust to living with an experimental partner.
Will their experimental spouses be able to fill the void they’ve been yearning for, or will they discover the grass isn’t always greener?
At the end of the daring social experiment, each of the couples will reunite and make the decision to either part ways, or reaffirm their commitment for life.
Over 1 in 4 Australians (6.5 million) watched Seven Year Switch in 2016 with the hit series No. 1 in its timeslot every week.
9pm Monday April 17 on Seven.
