Nine Network lines up second series of Twofour’s international hit, This Time Next Year


The Nine Network has confirmed a second run of Twofour’s award-winning time travel entertainment format, This Time Next Year.

The show, which is the fastest selling new series of 2016 with 14 territories in production, launched on the Nine Network in August with an average national audience of 1.870 million viewers and a peak of 2.205 million, and the program has consistently won its timeslot with Total People.

The first series saw host Karl Stefanovic meet a number of determined and compelling individuals, all ready to pledge 12 months of their lives to pursue extraordinary challenges. As they leave the studio through the “this time” door and re-appear moments later through the “next year” door, we see the results of their year-long work and effort in an instant.

“In this series I’ve been floored by some of the people I’ve met. They’ve overcome incredible odds to tackle big personal goals like losing half their body weight, finding love, having a baby, overcoming a phobia and even recovering from a spinal injury to walk again,” he said.

“Whether you’re 5 or 95, if you want to transform your life by ‘this time next year’ we want to hear from you. We’re also encouraging people to nominate a friend or relative.”

Karl said he can’t wait to hear the new pledges that everyday Australians will share with the entire nation in series 2.

Melanie Leach, Chief Executive, Twofour Group, said: “The Nine Network was the second broadcaster to air This Time Next Year and we’re delighted it’s the second to recommission, too. It’s been fascinating to see the Nine Network’s spin on this universal, heart-warming format and how culturally relevant the show can be across the globe.”
