Family Fortunes Recommissioned in the U.K.


Thames, part of Fremantle, has received a new commission from ITV for the game show Family Fortunes, with 20 episodes set to air in 2021.

Host Gino D’Acampo will return for season two. Based on the Family Feud format, the show challenges contestants to find the top answer to a survey-based question posed to 100 people in a chance to win £30,000.

D’Acampo said: “As soon as we’d finished the last season of Family Fortunes, I wanted to get straight back into the studio and film a load more episodes. Thankfully, the show went down very well with the viewers and I’m so happy to be back as I had the best time. The contestants really do make the show as brilliant as it is, and I know we’re going to be hearing a lot more weird and wonderful answers to the questions I’ll be asking.”

Amelia Brown, managing director of Thames, added: “It brings a lot of joy to all of those who work on Family Fortunes to know that the show has been so successful in such a period of uncertainty. It seems that viewers want to escape with the family and be entertained for an hour every Sunday night and we couldn’t be more pleased that the show is returning for even more episodes.”

Katie Rawcliffe, ITV’s head of entertainment commissioning, said: “We’re delighted to recommission Family Fortunes after such a popular kickoff series with Gino D’Acampo. It’s proving to be perfect viewing for families up and down the country and I’ve no doubt that the new series will be just as enjoyable to watch.”
