Rumour: The Weakest Link for Nine?
20 years since it first aired on Australian television, one quiz show could be making a comeback.
20 years since it first aired on Australian television, the rumour mill suggests The Weakest Link is heading back to Australian television.
A ‘Quizical’ casting notice for trivia experts is believed to be for a new version of The Weakest Link for Nine: “A quiz show where everyone is invited to play. We are looking for individuals who aren’t afraid to have some fun, have a friendly but competitive nature and who can answer quiz questions or have a good time trying. The only thing we ask you to bring is a positive attitude and be ready to have some laughs.”
It comes as personality-led quiz show Hard Quiz draws big numbers for ABC and the USA reboots The Weakest Link with former Glee star Jane Lynch.
TV Tonight recently reflected on who could host a new version in Australia… Gretel Killeen, anyone? But a host for a new version is still a guessing game.
Cornelia Frances hosted the series for Seven in 2001 – 2002.
Nine as been contacted for comment.
