GOGGLEBOX SEASON 3 PREMIERES
Wednesday, April 6, at 7.30pm on Foxtel’s The LifeStyle Channel
Thursday, April 7, at 8.30pm on TEN
Foxtel and Network Ten today announced season 3 of the hit local-production, Gogglebox Australia, the show about people watching television, will premiere on Foxtel’s The LifeStyle Channel on Wednesday, April 6, at 7.30pm, and broadcast on TEN on Thursday, April 7, at 8.30pm.
Gogglebox was the break-out show of 2015 that had everyone talking, capturing the reactions of ordinary Australian households like; vivacious friends and housemates, Angie & Yvie: best mates and larrikins with a thirst for life, Adam & Symon: bubbly Greek best friends, Anastasia & Faye and newly-engaged cocktail-loving, Wayne & Tom, as they watched the nightly news, argued over politics, cheered their favourite sporting teams and digested current affairs and documentaries. And this season, Gogglebox will take us in to the lounge rooms of new households who will be announced soon.
Hannah Barnes, General Manager LifeStyle Channels said: “We’re so happy to have our much-loved Goggleboxers back on The LifeStyle Channel, in their earlier 7.30pm timeslot, and can’t wait to introduce new households to the mix this season.
“Gogglebox Australia celebrates television in a truly unique way, not only because it’s the most genuine portrait of Australia out there, but because these families – that we’ve grown to know and love over the past year – are us. More so than any other show, it puts a mirror up to our own lives. The hilarity, warm-heartedness and glorious kookiness of our Goggleboxers is what makes it such a great show.”
Paul Leadon, Network Ten Head of Comedy said: “Gogglebox is a perfect fit for TEN; it’s disruptive, surprising and cheeky. We are all looking forward to catching up with our Goggleboxers again. They feel like good friends who’ve been away too long.”
Gogglebox Australia is an Endemol Shine Australia production for Foxtel and Network Ten
