The 10 x 30 minute series will sees Robinson travelling around Australia and New Zealand and revealing the hidden history of famous locales. This time he will visit The Barossa Valley, Canberra, Parramatta, Geelong, Townsville, Kalgoorlie, Wellington, Christchurch, Alice Springs and Uluru.
Robinson has previously appeared in Tony Robinson Explores Australia, the highest-rated series ever on The History Channel.
Foxtel’s General Manager of Factual Channels, Jim Buchan said “The first series of Tony Robinson’s Time Walks was a runaway success for The History Channel, redefining how relevant and accessible our brand commissions can be in delivering new untold histories to our audiences.”
“Tony brings such great energy and perspective to the series and we’re delighted to have him back on board for another series.”
“I’m over the moon to be making a second series of Time Walks and can’t wait to get back to Australia to discover even more of the hidden history that lies behind, above and below the places Australians walk every day,” Robinson said.
Produced by WTFN, the series will commence production this month and air in early 2014.
