Weakest Link Returning in Australia


Australia’s Channel Nine has commissioned a new version of the iconic quiz show Weakest Link from BBC Studios Australia and New Zealand.

The new iteration of Weakest Link will deliver the fast-paced and quick-witted pillars of the original British format with a few modern twists. The new series marks a return to Australian screens for the quiz show, which was last on-air in Australia on Seven Network in 2002.

Kylie Washington, BBC Studios’ ANZ director of production, said: “We are delighted to reintroduce Australians to this fast, fun and addictive show, which is a pop-cultural phenomenon and has been entertaining audiences around the world for over two decades.”

Adrian Swift, Nine’s head of content, production and development, said: “Weakest Link is one of the world’s most loved and enduring quiz formats. It’s not just about what you know, but also knowing who’s your biggest threat and when to bank your winnings. We are very proud to have the new Weakest Link here on Nine.”
