Returning: Rush

By David Knox on August 21, 2011 / Filed Under Programming 30

Police drama Rush returns to TEN next week, airing at 9:30pm on Thursday September 1st.

This will be the fourth season for the Tactical Response team and initiates a major storyline across its 13 episodes.

TEN did not announce the show amongst its returning dramas at its 2012 Programming launch last week.

TEN’s award winning police drama is back. And it’s better than ever.

Opening with the assassination of the Victorian police minister, Kerry Vincent (Catherine McClements) has now appointed a new taskforce, Cicero, in order to find those responsible. Apart of that task force is our beloved Tactical Response team with a new addition, Charlie Lewis.

Lewis (played by Outrageous Fortune’s Antony Starr) is brought in above Lawson (Rodger Corser) which is less than welcome news for a man who is used to having things his own way. How will this new leadership sit with TR? And who won’t even have their job after the first briefing?

As this newly appointed task starts to find those responsible, they uncover a convoluted criminal  web that goes deeper than any of them imagined. Spanning across thirteen episodes, this new  season will see gun fights, car chases, hostage scenarios and explosions all piecing together for one hell of a ride.

    Rush is a brilliant drama that never fails to entertain. 13 episodes for season 4 is an insult to all involved with producing this show. To think the season will be over in 6 or so weeks is such a shame. Channel 10 – Don’t you think it is about time we support our Australian shows instead of encouraging the domination of the over rated US dramas…how many versions of Law & Order do we really need on our screens? and lets not forget NCIS…NCIS LA is nothing compared to it’s parent show NCIS…and the same goes for all the Law & Order spin offs. Sadly, I’ve lost interest in both those shows due to the spin offs, they’re a real turn off. Rush repeats on dvd and Foxtel are a far better option than wasting time tuning in to some of Tens current choices.

    Welcome back Rush. Love the show have watch it from the beginning and have been waiting to come back, but what’s with ” Josh” new hair style. It looks off from the front and so short at the back. What happen to his previous sexy hair style and look. Rodger you are still very sexy. Great show.

    The ads now say movie length premiere at 8:30pm september 1st – how exciting!! Fingers crossed we get an explanation as to why on earth Josh grew his hair hahaha

  5. Andy August 22, 2011 at 11:19 pm -

    yes, i also saw the add tonight which said 8.30. so here we go again, with all the for and against arguments….

  6. Shelley August 22, 2011 at 8:33 pm -

    The ad I just saw now says premiering 8.30pm Thursday.

    Jeepers, are people off their meds today?

    Personally I think it’s sad that Rush is being dumped into 9.30 Thursdays but because it has such a loyal following I think people who like it will stick with it no matter where it is. Just don’t start shuttling it around, Ten!

    What a shame Southern Star and Ten didn’t promote that Antony Starr was joining the cast. Having a brilliant actor from Outrageous Fortune might just get me watching … oh wait. He’s from New Zealand.

    None of you are making sense but u are oh so funny LOL

    Guys no more insults please. Discuss the show or programming or move on thanks.

    @Secret Squirrel , I never turn up late to a party , I’ve been to many a party where I disagree with your comments including this one , unlike your party ventures where all you wanna do is find the nearest window so you can break wind .

    @secret squirrel. Rush does good demos. Hamish and Andy does great demos. Why would TEN put Rush in a suicide slot when at the end of H&A there are 1 million viewers looking for something else to watch. Footy show? not in Syd/Bris!
    Rush is not an 8.30 option in this environment.

  13. Secret Squïrrel August 21, 2011 at 8:35 pm -

    @TV. Tomorrow & @Whoop – how about showing a little maturity and identifying what it is that you disagree with rather than just turning up late to the party and dropping your daks.

  14. dirk August 21, 2011 at 8:17 pm -

    @ Secret Squirrel anything will rate better than Rush and I mean anything, even repeats.

    Rush should never have been given a 2nd season let alone a 3rd or 4th. Just shows how much faith Ten has in it if they put it on at 9.30pm. It’s exactly the sort of Australian drama we don’t need and yet another John Edwards flop.

    Ever since it began ratings for this show have been disastrous. Glad to see it go.

  15. Whoops August 21, 2011 at 8:01 pm -

    @TV Tomorrow – second your comments on secret squirrel – hilarious

  16. Andrew_81 August 21, 2011 at 6:12 pm -

    I agree with putting it on at 8:30pm up against Hamish & Andy.

  17. Nik C August 21, 2011 at 5:33 pm -

    I am glad it is back. 9:30 isn’t the best time slot, but then you can see that obviously 10 will axe it at the end of the season, due to no more tax discounts.

    I agree with Anthony Mai at least it will not clash with Crownies.

    Aussie dramas don’t seem to get much of a fair go and deserve better.

    Love Rush and Crownies :)

    Outraged at Rush being given a 9.30pm slot.

    Are TEN serious? Look at their current ratings. The Footy Show on Nine does good numbers at 9.30 – Rush has no chance. Idiots. Give it an 8.30 slot.

  19. Butters August 21, 2011 at 3:30 pm -

    @TV.Tomorrow – What Squirrel said makes perfect sense. Stones in glass houses and all that.

  20. TV. Tomorrow August 21, 2011 at 2:15 pm -

    @Secret Squirrel , you clearly have no idea about Television.

  21. Secret Squïrrel August 21, 2011 at 1:20 pm -

    This surely can’t be because Ten thinks that a repeat of SVU will rate better than Rush? Is it a classification thing? If so, they’ll prob be better off making 9:30 the Rush slot rather than switching it around depending on the classification.

  22. tv August 21, 2011 at 12:34 pm -

    The first five episodes will be crushed by the footy shows, especiaaly the grand final shows.

  23. Alex August 21, 2011 at 12:26 pm -

    9.30 – that pretty much seals in that this will be the last season. Shame, but looking forward to another ripper season. Great show!

  24. Anthony Mai August 21, 2011 at 11:29 am -

    The only positive thing about this timeslot I guess, is that it won’t clash with another Aussie drama (Crownies on ABC1) at 8.30pm.

  25. David Knox August 21, 2011 at 11:19 am -

    8:30 is an SVU repeat. Ahem.

  26. Anthony Mai August 21, 2011 at 9:54 am -

    Yeah, I’ve been seeing promos already!!

    But why 9.30 and not 8.30? Please don’t tell me Ten rather have it after SVU repeats!

    Callan Mulvey’s new hair: thumbs down!

  27. mac August 21, 2011 at 9:11 am -

    “TEN did not announce the show amongst its returning dramas at its 2012 Programming launch last week”.

    Finally common sense prevails! Ten mustn’t have had much faith in it ditching it in a 9.30pm slot.

    I just wish they could make a good drama that appeals to more people for a change.

  28. Craig August 21, 2011 at 8:52 am -

    It’s been too long, if this was a US/UK show many of us would have not waited LOL

    So can we assume they won’t be showing a double ep on Sept 1st?

  29. Ryaneco August 21, 2011 at 8:30 am -

    What a shit slot! You got nothing better at 830 Ten put it there, new SVU is done witth now isn’t it??

  30. Bogues August 21, 2011 at 8:02 am -

    What’s going in the 8:30 Thursday slot for ten?
