GOGGLEBOX SEASON 2 PREMIERES
Foxtel and Network Ten today announced season 2 of the hit local production, Gogglebox Australia, the show about people watching television, will premiere on Foxtel’s The LifeStyle Channel on Wednesday, September 30, at 9.30pm, and broadcast on TEN on Thursday, October 1, at 8.30pm.
Gogglebox was the break-out show that had everyone talking, capturing the reactions of 10 ordinary Australian households as they watched the nightly news, argued over politics, cheered their favourite sporting teams and digested current affairs and documentaries.
Each week Gogglebox took the temperature of the nation and left us with some of the most memorable quotes, like Lee & Keith, who shared some sage advice on TV love scenes; Keith “Why is everything in slow-mo?”, Lee “Because it lasts longer!”
Janet (The Kidd Family) asked the question about the Kardashians that’s on everyone’s mind: “Why does anyone want to keep up with them?”
Angie wasn’t a fan of chef, Gordon Ramsay; “Gordon Ramsay hot? I’d rather s*#@ in my hands and clap!”
Anastasia taught us some Greek history; “The Greeks taught everyone how to make everything”, and what it means to be a “Malaka”. She also asked the age-old question “Who is Larry and why is he so happy?”
And when Tom wasn’t sipping on a cocktail he was talking about his drinking and dating habits: “I’ve been blind on a date, but not a blind-date.”
All your favourites from season 1 will be returning in season 2: vivacious friends and housemates, Angie & Yvie; best mates and larrikins with a thirst for life, Adam & Symon; bubbly Greek best friends, Anastasia & Faye; the close-knit Dalton Family; the fun-loving Delpechitra Family; the sports-crazy Jackson Family; the quirky, fun and intelligent Kidd Family; the couple happily married for 30 years, Lee & Keith; Indigenous Art Dealers, Mick & Di; and newly-engaged cocktail-loving Wayne & Tom.
Endemol Shine Australia, executive producer, David McDonald said: We’re delighted that all our Goggleboxers have returned for a second season and can’t wait to see their unique and funny take on TV’s latest offerings, while getting a little more insight into their lives.”
