Don & # 39; t Swap Believin & # 39 ;: Channel Seven delays the long-awaited Wife Swap Australia to restart until 2020
It is one of the most watched reality TV shows of all time.
And last October, Channel Seven fans got excited by announcing plans to restart Wife Swap Australia nine years after it was last broadcast in Australia in 2012.
But according to TV tonight on Friday the network decided to push back the long-awaited show.
Don & # 39; t Swap Believin & # 39 ;: Channel Seven has to postpone the long-awaited Wife Swap Australia until 2020
The network has promised that the series & # 39; hot button issues & # 39; and has encouraged modern-day families and couples to sign up.
The move to bring back the show was announced last year at the annual Upfronts – these are presentations in which the major networks view their upcoming fall and mid-season series for media.
The decision of Channel Seven comes after the rapid rise of reality dating program & # 39; s watched the network behind rivals Nine and Ten slip away.
Miscellaneous: the new series promises & # 39; hot button issues & # 39; to address, and same-sex couples are strongly encouraged to apply according to production company Screen time
In recent years, Nine & # 39; s Married At First Sight and 10 & # 39; s Bachelor franchise Seven surpassed the coveted 16 to 39 and 25 to 54 demographics.
The proposed reboot from Wife Swap Australia, originally broadcast on Foxtel, is produced by Screentime.
And the filming is supposed to have taken place earlier this year, with a press release from the network outlining one of the upcoming episodes of the series.
Rejoice: In October, Channel Seven announced excited long-term fans when it announced plans to restart Wife Swap Australia nine years after it was last broadcast on Aussie screens in 2012
Patience is a virtue: Wife Swap Australia has been pushed back for a release in 2020 according to a report released by TV on Friday
& # 39; The mother of all social experiments gets a face-lift & # 39 ;, it started before she plunged into the delightful drama.
& # 39; Two women from two very different families exchange their homes and live for two weeks, but in this brand new reboot the drama is intensified – with visits from the mother-in-law and bombshells these families will get much more than they expected. & # 39;
The news of the push-back comes after Seven had pushed the contemporary drama series Between Two Worlds until 2020.
Shocking: Channel Seven's hyped-up series called it & # 39; Australia's most daring and controversial social experiment & # 39; bombed for the network in June, which led to cancellation
It is the newest drawback for the network, after the MAFS-inspired reality dating show The Super Switch was canceled just weeks after the bombing in the rating during the first run in June.
But in an effort to keep reality in the field of reality television happy, the network released a dramatic trailer for fan-favorite Bride & Prejudice.
Bride & Prejudice: The Forbidden Weddings will be broadcast on Seven later this month.
