SBS-Australia confirms season two of Struggle Street

SBS has confirmed it has commissioned a second season of Struggle Street. The move comes after reports last year that the multicultural broadcaster was scouting locations in Sunshine one of Melbourne’s poorer suburbs.

In a statement SBS television and online content director, Marshall Heald, said: “At the heart of SBS is a commitment to contributing to a cohesive society. Struggle Street will seek to raise awareness and deepen our understanding of those of us in the community facing social and economic hardship through an honest reflection of what it’s like to be doing it tough in Australia today.”

Struggle Street series two will this time be filmed in Queensland and Victoria and again exploring the personal stories and challenges such as economic downturn and transition and hardship.

The series two will again be produced by Keo Films with funding support from Screen Australia and Film Victoria. It will air in late 2017.
