Upfronts 2022: What can we expect from Nine?
Upfronts season is here, with Nine ready to raise the curtain on new & returning shows.
Tomorrow Nine presents its 2022 Upfronts to media buyers across its TV, digital, radio and print platforms.
Nine is expected to renew all of its early evening slate from 2021 with some variations (such as celebrities in Lego Masters and a rumoured regional edition of The Block.
Nine always prides itself on News & Current Affairs and it’s been a big year for that. Expect much around its news brands and personalities.
It’s also time for Nine to commit to new dramas in 2022. Amazing Grace is its sole new drama this year but has not been formally renewed. This follows the end of Doctor Doctor and single seasons of Halifax: Retribution and Seachange -the key here is international sales.
A few shows were unable to proceed due to COVID and will fall into 2022, while some are still due this year.
On the Rumour front are new shows expected for Yvie Jones & Shaynna Blaze… and the arvo numbers for Tipping Point are always worth asking if a local version is possible -if so what slot?
