For the genealogy TV lovers, it has just been announced that Who Do You Think You Are?, the Australian version will be back in 2014, which will make it it’s 6th season. That’s a good effort don’t you think. At this rate we’ll catchup to the number of seasons that the UK has aired. Just kidding.
Ok, so Who Do You Think You Are? hasn’t managed to hit the top the TV ratings yet, but it does consistently get thousands of viewers every week, so has proved itself as a popular program. And while enjoyable to watch, and see each celebrity discover their family, it has also introduced genealogy to an audience that otherwise would never have been interested.
Seasons 1-4 of Who Do You Think You Are? Australia each featured 6 episodes, while Season 5 which aired earlier this year had 8. I don’t know for sure how many will be in Season 6, but I can tell you five of the celebrities who will feature in it …
- Andrew Denton
- Rebecca Gibney
- Lisa McCune
- Richard Roxburgh
- Jacki Weaver
As of yet I don’t have any starting date, except that it will be sometime in 2014. But keep an eye in our email newsletter, or on Twitter or Facebook, as we’ll announce it everywhere when we find out. But I do know that it will air on SBS again.
