Puberty Blues producers are moving ahead with plans for a second season, despite the ratings numbers for the TEN drama.
Last week the show pulled 673,000 viewers, but as most observers know, it’s because of the poor lead-in from I Will Survive. Puberty Blues actually doubled the figures of its lead-in.
“We have struggled with decent numbers for the lead-in, but we are so happy with our show,” John Edwards told the Sunday Telegraph.
Drama exec Rick Maier recently acknowledged the show would be doing “greater volume” on a network like Seven.
Producers John Edwards and Imogen Banks are in script development on a second season.
“Yes, we are discussing it now. There’s a strong chance, and Imogen and I have been in the plotting room and are well into development ourselves,” Edwards says.
“So for those demanding more, we have high hopes we’ll deliver.
“We’d imagine fairly much continuing on in the late ’70s with pretty much the stories as we left them, maybe a year further on.”
