SBS has announced that a second season of The Family Law will be hitting our screens as of next year. The Family Law first hit screens in January this year, nabbing an average national audience of 417,000 across the series, and attracted 1.1 million views for its Facebook-first premiere.

Written and created by Benjamin Law, and based on his memoir of the same name, The Family Law is a coming-of-age story told through the eyes of teenager Benjamin, as he navigates growing up amidst the chaos of his hilarious, heart-warming and dysfunctional family.

The Family Law is developed and produced by Matchbox Pictures (The Slap, Nowhere Boys, Glitch) in
association with Screen Queensland, Screen Australia and SBS.

SBS director of television and online content, Marshall Heald, said, “As well as being laugh-out-loud
hilarious, season one of The Family Law was also poignant and heartfelt.

“On one level it appeared the story of a family who was different – an Asian-Australian family – but at its heart it’s a universal story of any normal Australian family grappling with the everyday challenges of life, love, friendships and teenage angst – universally relatable themes.

“I can’t wait to see what Benjamin Law and the talented team at Matchbox Pictures have in store for the Laws in season two.”

In season two, Benjamin and the Laws are excited to explore fresh careers, fresh ambitions, even fresh romances.

Benjamin Law, series creator, said, “One of the most satisfying things about season one of The Family Law was seeing how many audience members – Asian and non-Asian Australian alike – felt their own families were finally reflected back at them.

“We’re excited to be putting a 90 per cent Asian-Australian cast on TV again, and picking right up from where we left the Laws. Once again, we’re looking forward to making people laugh as much as they cry from their hearts breaking – partly, because we’re mean, but ultimately because that’s what family’s about, really.”

Executive producer at Matchbox Pictures, Tony Ayres, added, “Matchbox was thrilled to bring season one
of this exuberant and heartfelt comedy to audiences both here and internationally. So we’re (more than)
doubly thrilled to be back for season two, which will be funnier, ruder and even more poignant.”

Filming will begin on The Family Law season two in Queensland later this year, and the series will air on SBS in 2017.
