RocKwiz end: “We were the little ship that could.”
Julia Zemiro thanks fans and SBS after confirmation SBS will not produce more episodes.
Julia Zemiro has thanked diehard fans of RocKwiz and SBS for their support for the music show which has ended its TV run.
As revealed by TV Tonight yesterday RocKwiz is not returning to SBS.
“The decision we’ve made is that it is time to call an end to RocKwiz after a long success on SBS,” SBS Channel Manager Ben Nguyen confirmed.
“Julia became a big talent through SBS but it is a natural decision as channels evolve and moving into new spaces over time.”
The series ran for 14 seasons on SBS and late last year toured the nation once again with 13 Live shows of The RocKwiz Revue 2018.
Yes it’s true @RocKwiz officially is no longer @SBS . While disappointing I must celebrate their vision a decade ago to give us a chance in the first place. We were the little ship that could. And did. https://t.co/oPFKgtNBQt

TV Tonight understands while SBS seasons are now merely repeats, more Live shows may yet resume for the much-loved show and a series may be pitched to another platform.
Co-creator Brian Nankervis recently said, “It is frustrating because the audiences just adore it. We did 31 shows last year and most of them were sold out. So who knows? We’re open to ideas!”
