TV3 viewers can look forward to a second season of South Pacific Pictures’ hit drama series The Almighty Johnsons. Funding for a series two has received the green light from NZ On Air.
Kelly Martin, MediaWorks Director of Programming says the announcement is good news for fans of great New Zealand storytelling. “A second season of The Almighty Johnsons continues TV3’s commitment to delivering world-class local drama to Kiwi screens.”
Chris Bailey, Managing Director of South Pacific Pictures, adds: “We are delighted to be making a second series of The Almighty Johnsons and are thrilled that audiences have connected with the show and love it as much as we do.”
When The Almighty Johnsons launched earlier this year, it was clear that audiences were enthusiastic to welcome a new Kiwi family into their homes. 1,637,100 people turned in to The Almighty Johnsons across the course of the series (AP5+ cume reach), and the programme averaged a 9.8 rating and 25.7% share in TV3’s target 25-54 demographic.
