Australia’s Most Wanted goes international.
Last year, the first series of Wanted was not only the Number One Australian Drama for the Seven Network it was also the Number One Australian Drama across all networks. So no surprise a second series was commissioned of the show.
The first series ended with Lola (Rebecca Gibney) and Chelsea (Geraldine Hakewill) finally getting some respite after being chased from New South Wales to Queensland. That was until Lola received a phone call to say the hunters had taken her son. So cue the start of the second series.
Without giving away major spoilers, I have been lucky to watch the first half of the new series and like the first, it sees Lola and Chelsea on the run whilst trying to also save Lola’s son. Except this time they’ve gone abroad to Bangkok and New Zealand.
Expect the action and drama of the first series, mixed in with a dry sense of humour, which is largely due to the fantastic chemistry of Gibney and Hakewill.
Will we see a Series Three? Time will tell!
