One Of Australia's Biggest TV Shows Is Coming Back!
Channel 9 is set to bring back Hi-5.
The new version of the show will have a whole new cast when it launches in 2017.
The franchise is aimed at children aged 2-5 years and will be written and produced by an all Australian crew.
The original series ran for an amazing 13 seasons on Nine between 1999 and 2011 before Hi-5 hour was filed in Asia.
Executive Creative Director and Executive Producer for Hi-5, Julie Greene, said: “Historically Hi-5 has been one of the most recognised children’s television programs in Australia and we are delighted to be returning to our original home at Channel Nine and bringing our show back to our audience.
“We’re really excited to be working with Nine to develop a reinvigorated Hi-5 show. It will continue to offer the opportunity for active participation from children at home, with a sense that they are sharing in a dynamic, physically involving and sensitive exploration of their world, while also giving a platform to showcase a new lineup of ‘triple threat’ of young Australian talent who can sing, dance and act.”
Casting will start for the show shortly.
