Nine announced today that Family Food Fight has been commissioned for a second series, set to air in 2018.
The high-energy cooking format, created by Endemol Shine Australia in conjunction with Nine, sees food-loving Aussie families go head-to-head in the kitchen in the battle to claim the title of Australia’s Number One Food Family.
Families are set a variety of challenges in which they are tasked with cooking a range of family staples, an assortment of cuisines and all-time favourite feasts. The feel-good program celebrates the food we all love to eat at home.
Airing in the final four weeks of the 2017 ratings period, Family Food Fight was a hit with the critics, established a loyal audience of viewers and turned the winning Shahrouk family into household names. It performed reasonably though struggled often to win the 7:30pm timeslot.
Michael Healy, Director of Television for Nine, said:
“We’re really proud to have brought a fresh cooking format to Australian audiences and are confident that it will grow to be an even more solid contributor to Nine’s family-friendly slate next year. Viewers have told us they loved the combination of everyday families with accessible, home-cooked meals. Family Food Fight laid a great foundation for us in the final quarter this year to create a compelling second series in 2018.”
Endemol Shine Australia CEO, Mark Fennessy, said:
“We’re extremely proud of this original cooking format and delighted it’s been so warmly supported by our partners at Nine. We look forward to bringing viewers a second helping of good humour, healthy family rivalry and incredible home cooking.”
