Wanted Series 3 commences production

Channel Seven, Matchbox Pictures and R&R Productions have commenced filming a third series of Wanted.

The hit drama premiered in February 2016 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 pasts.

Filming of the third series is taking place throughout South Australia, including the iconic Flinders Ranges and Adelaide Hills.

This season is being directed by Peter Templeman (WantedHere Come the Habibs!) and in her first ever TV directing role, Jocelyn Moorhouse (The DressmakerProof).

Series co-creator, Rebecca Gibney, said: “I am so excited to be bringing Wanted back to Australia and filming in the glorious state of South Australia. Lola and Chelsea have become such a huge part of my life and I can’t wait to show the world where they end up next, because this time there’s no going back.”

Seven’s Head of Drama, Julie McGauran, said: “Audiences across Australia have fallen in love with Lola and Chelsea and we’re thrilled to commence filming on a third series. Wanted is a drama full of adventure and heart – much like its lead actors, Rebecca Gibney and Geraldine Hakewill.”

Matt Vitins, Acting Managing Director, Matchbox Pictures said: “Matchbox is excited to be working with Seven and R&R Productions on this next season of Wanted. We are incredibly proud of this series and the success it has found with audiences on Seven and internationally. We cannot wait to see our heroines Lola and Chelsea take their adventures across South Australia.”
