800 Words Season 2 Begins January 3rd

Last Updated by Dale Fisher on

In the Australian comedy-drama 800 Words, recently widowed Sydney newspaper columnist George Turner (Erik Thomson) sets out to make a fresh start with his teenage children by moving to the tiny New Zealand town where he vacationed as a child. When the transition proves to be more difficult than he anticipated, George and his grieving family find themselves facing an uncertain future. Season 1 saw the Turners struggling to fit in. Though they’ve become more accepted by the locals, in Season 2 there are still plenty of problems for George to face, including finding a real job and, potentially, new love.

Thursdays at 9:00 p.m., starting January 3rd, on Nine PBS.
