SBS renews controversial comedy series Housos

Australian public broadcaster SBS has renewed controversial comedy series Housos for a second season.

The politically incorrect comedy, which stars Paul Fenech and is set in a fictional housing estate, originally aired on SBS One and has been commissioned for a further nine episodes. It is distributed internationally by the sales of SBS.

Tony Iffland, SBS’s director of television and online content, said: “Housos became hugely successful with its tongue-in-cheek humour. The new season will continue our commitment to commissioning and supporting Australian content and talent. We are delighted to be working with Paul again on a second series.

Fenech added: “The new season of Housos gives fans the chance to unite and get in touch with their inner-bogan. Whether you have to beg, borrow or literally steal a TV set to watch it, we have enough surprises to make it worth your while.”
