ABC, Screen Australia and Film Victoria have announced that filming has begun on the second season of the comedy series Get Krack!n, created, written, produced by and starring Kate McCartney and Kate McLennan.
As the follow-up to ‘The Kates’ classic first series hailed by critics as “the finest satire ever put to air on Australian television”. The show will return with eight 25 minute episodes set in the world of brekky TV. Despite the loss of a sponsor, an incompetent crew, and devastating structural fire, Get Krack!n is back for more apocalypse- dodging content.
Season 2 will again feature a kracking line up, which includes Nakkiah Lui , Miranda Tapsell, Anne Edmonds, Michelle Lim Davidson, Adam Briggs, Charlotte Nicdao, Ming-Zhu Hii, Wes Snelling and Dave Thornton.
“We are so eggcited to be back. We can’t wait to be in the studio again, catering to the direct interests of our biggest fans, straight white men aged 18-55″, The Kates said.
ABC Head of Comedy Rick Kalowski commented on the news, stating, “Season 1 drew all four key TV demographics: fans of great satire; young people delighted to learn the ABC existed; angry old guys who just got Facebook; and people who only watch shows that offend them. Get Krack!n Season 2 will give all something to love/find ‘deeply problematic’.”
Film Victoria CEO Caroline Pitcher said “We welcome ABC’s next exciting installment from Melbourne’s creative all-rounders in Kate McLennan and Kate McCartney. Their unique approach to comedy writing delivers hilarious and unforgettable characters with content that speaks directly to a female audience. We look forward to seeing what the duo has in store for breakfast television this time around.”
Get Krack!n Season 2 will air on ABC TV and iview sometime in early 2019.
