This article has the most up-to-date info on the status of The Checkout season 5 as we continuously monitor the news to keep you in the know. ABC (AU) is yet to make a decision on its future. Subscribe to our automatic updates below.
Series format and production info
The Checkout is an Australian consumer affairs and comedy TV series airing on ABC AU since March 2013. The current fourth season debuted on April 7, 2016. The show is executive produced by Julian Morrow and Nick Murray and produced by Giant Dwarf Pty. Ltd.
The show details the rights of consumers and tests certain goods and services segments for misleading, unfair or sometimes even illegal methods. Everyone comes under scrutiny – manufacturers, service providers, resellers and advertising agencies. Certain brands also get the (most likely) unwanted attention from the production team.
Excellent reception and renewal potential
The Checkout is dubbed “essential viewing for any consumer”, and provides insight into the tricks and outright lying utilized by both manufacturers and marketers. Besides, the satirical twist that it puts on the regular consumer affairs issues makes it one of the most innovative formats in its segment. From overpriced WiFi to complementary medicines – no product or service is safe. Even though there are ongoing lawsuits regarding contents of certain segments, ABC is standing by its program and its creators.
The show has an 8.3/10 IMDb score and enjoys great popularity with the viewers. Its second installment has averaged 1.3 million viewers per episode, and the third season currently averages close to 700,000 viewers. The team who`s responsible for The Chaser`s War on Everything, did not falter in producing The Checkout, which is both entertaining and informative. It seems like a renewal is almost a sure bet, so please stay tuned for relevant announcements.
