If you like to get your laughs from Down Under, we’ve got good news for you. ABC TV in Australia and SundanceTV have renewed the Rosehaven TV show for a third season, with a premiere date TBD.

In 2017, SundanceTV boarded as a co-producer for the second season, with the first two installments launching in the US, in September and October of 2017 (respectively).

The SundanceTV show centers on Daniel McCallum (McGregor), who returns to his rural Tasmanian hometown, Rosehaven, to help his overbearing mom, Barbara (McQuade), with her real estate business. He’s soon surprised when his best friend, Emma (Pacquola), leaves the mainland and arrives at his home.

ABC serious about comedy with Rosehaven returning for a third series
Thursday, February 22, 2018 — ABC and SundanceTV (USA) are pleased to announce comedians Luke McGregor and Celia Pacquola will head south once again for a third series of their hit comedy Rosehaven.
Boasting a superb cast, award-winning writing and the stunning backdrop of country Tasmania, the small-town comedy series Rosehaven has been embraced by audiences in Australia and across the world. Series three finds best mates Daniel (Luke McGregor) and Emma (Celia Pacquola in her AACTA Award winning role) now firmly ensconced as bona fide real estate agents, weathering the storm of recalcitrant landlords, anxiety inducing tenants, an overbearing boss (Daniel’s mum) and a town where a 24 hour emergency butcher is considered a normal part of life. And to come will be big changes in Dan’s and Emma’s personal lives, and a real estate opportunity that threatens to divide the whole town…
“We’re very happy to be back for season 3. Will a meteorite hit the town this season? Or will it fly harmlessly overhead and none of the characters will see or reference it? Stay tuned!” say Luke and Celia.
ABC Head of Comedy Rick Kalowski said, “It’s a thrill to have one of ABC’s true jewels back for more laughs, charm and lump-in-the-throat moments in later 2018.”
A Screen Tasmania Spokesperson added, “It’s great to have Rosehaven coming back for another season and we are thrilled be a part of it. It has helped cement Tasmania’s reputation as an exceptional filming destination, with wide ranging on-screen and off-screen local talent, as well being a great place to visit.”
Rosehaven will air on ABC later in the year.
