SBS (AU) Renewal and Cancellation Wrap

Note: In most cases, “Renewal” refers to a show being granted another season in 2012, or later in the year, depending on the show.


An eighth season is currently airing with a ninth to air in 2012.

Who do You Think You Are? AU

A fourth season has been commissioned.

Who do You Think You Are? UK

An eighth season will appear on screens in 2011.

Santo, Sam and Ed’s Cup Fever

This is an interesting one, in that it will not return next year, nor the year after, but it was so popular back in 2010 that if all three hosts were available in 2014, it would easily slip back into the schedule.

Letters and Numbers

Though only six people in Australia watch it regularly (give or take…), SBS seems to have come across a nice little week-nightly show with three friendly-enough personalities.

It’s kind of like the poorer- much poorer- and more tactful cousin of ABC’s Spicks and Specks.

It’s only a matter of time before a commercial network snags Lily Serna too- she’s a real find- and would (literally) have an IQ at least 50 points higher than most of her commercial counterparts… the problem is, there probably isn’t a job mentally stimulating enough to offer her.

David Astle is not bad, too.


Signs are promising for it to return for a ninth season.


The Late Session

The Ricky Gervais Show

East West 101

Ratings have never been stellar for this show starring Don Hany, but neither have any other show’s ratings. It always picks up awards as well as critical acclaim, but there wouldn’t be much of an outcry if it was not given a fourth season.

Mad Men

Despite being a critical darling, this show is in grave danger of being cancelled after various licensing issues surrounding it. If you don’t believe me, check thisout.


An eighth and final season is still to come in the States.
