We might be getting a new season of ‘Spicks and Specks’

Adam Hills mentioned the possibility of filming another season in a recent interview.

Iconic music quiz show Spicks and Specks will return to our screens this Sunday for a ’00s-themed special, featuring the show’s original host Adam Hills and team captains Myf Warhurst and Alan Brough. They’ll be joined by special guests Ella Hooper, Nic Cester, Joel Creasey and Sarah Kendall.

Ahead of the special edition of Spicks and Specks, Hills let slip that there may be more new episodes on the way in the form of a new season. In an interview for The Green Room with Neil Griffiths, Hills said that with coronavirus freeing up his filming schedule, the possibility of a new ten-episode series is now much more likely.

“There was talk of doing a series of ten at some point this year, but then I had to juggle that around The Last Leg and the Paralympics. And now, the Paralympics have been cancelled as well, or postponed, so there’s definitely a possibility [of filming new episodes],” he said.

With strict restrictions on gatherings making the usual panel and live audience format impossible, Hills also noted that there would be some logistics to consider if they were to start filming a new season.

“Alan, Myf and I all want it to happen,” said Hills. “It’s just a matter of logistically pulling it together. But yeah, I think there could be some more.”

The upcoming ’00s special comes as part of a limited series of themed episodes, including past ’90s and Australian music episodes, and a forthcoming special to be aired in the coming months.

Catch the Spicks and Specks ’00s special on Sunday April 19 at 7:40pm on ABC TV.
