The Nine Network has confirmed it will not be renewing Rescue Special Ops for a fourth season.
A Nine spokesperson told the Sunday Telegraph, “Rescue has been a much loved drama and Nine has decided this will be its final season.
“It ends while it’s still going strong.”
This year saw the third season boosted from 13 episodes to an impressive 22 eps. with episode 16 set to air tomorrow night.
Produced by Southern Star, its producers Julie McGauran and Sarah Smith are also producing Wild Boys for Seven -one of its first non in-house productions in a long time- plus a telemovie Dripping with Chocolate for BBC Worldwide.
The exit of Rescue follows that of Sea Patrol after 5 seasons but Nine’s drama slate is still quite buoyant with Underbelly: Razor, Beaconsfield, Kerry Packer’s World Series Cricket all yet to air, and a rumoured new drama from Screentime tipped to be announced.
New telemovie Sundowner will also be produced by Cordell Jigsaw.
