Wanted gets a second season

Channel Seven, Matchbox Pictures and R & R Productions have announced Wanted has been commissioned for a second series.

The hit drama premiered in February with a combined series average of 1.85 million viewers watching Lola (REBECCA GIBNEY) and Chelsea (GERALDINE HAKEWILL) on the run from the law and their past.

Series co-creator, Rebecca Gibney, said: “We are beyond excited with the commissioning of the second series of Wanted.  Geri and I get on like a house on fire so we can’t wait to return to life on the run. She’s the perfect partner in crime.”

Seven’s Head of Drama, Julie McGauran, said: “We are delighted to announce the second season of Wanted.  Clearly, audiences fell in love with the humour, warmth and sense of adventure that is the heart of the series.”

Matchbox Pictures Managing Director, Chris Oliver-Taylor, added: “Matchbox is thrilled to be working with R & R and Channel Seven as we continue the journey of Chelsea and Lola into a second season, helping bring to life Rebecca’s and Richard’s amazing characters and story.”

 

Principal photography begins late September with the series expected to air in early 2017.
