Popular Nine Network drama House Husbands will return for a second season.
The new series, which stars Gary Sweet, Julia Morris, Rhys Muldoon, Gyton Grantley and Firass Dirani, will begin filming next year according to Nine and production house Playmaker Media.
House Husbands is currently Australia’s highest rating drama, attracting an average weekly audience of just over 2 million viewers each week, according to consolidated OzTam figures quoted by Nine.
The success of the drama comes as Nine struggles under an onerous debt burden and after a string of dramas – apart from its Underbelly franchise – which failed to capture a widespread audience such as Tricky Business and Cops L.A.C.
Playmaker Media directors David Taylor and David Maher said in a statement: “We couldn’t be more pleased our House Husbands are back for another series. It is a huge credit to our dedicated team of writers, cast and crew that we’re back for more… see you at the school gates!”
