Get your thinking caps on, Australia, because the iconic quiz show Spicks And Specks is set to return for a bunch of highly-anticipated reunion specials.
From 2005 until 2011, our Wednesday nights were usually filled up with watching Spicks And Specks. While Adam Hills hosted the show with his trademark humour, team captains Alan Brough and Myf Warhurst were joined by a number of musical and comedic guests as they tested their musical wits.
Sadly, the show came to an end in 2011, and even though we saw a revival series back in 2014 (which was axed before it even finished its original run), we’ve been hanging out for a full-fledged reunion (or replacement) for some time.
While we managed to witness a one-off reunion special last year, fans thought this might be the last we’ll see of the show before the inevitable 20th anniversary event. Now though, we’re in for not one, but four huge reunion specials across the next year.
As Double J reports, the first of these specials is set to take place in November of this year as part of Ausmusic Month celebrations. Meanwhile, three further specials – each focusing on music from the ’90s, ’00s, and ’10s – will also air throughout 2020.
“From the moment Alan, Myf and I were together in a room for last year’s Spicks And Specks Reunion Special, we had each other in fits of laughter,” explained host Adam Hills in a statement.
“Any time I can spend with those two fools is time well spent, and if it takes four more specials to make that happen – so be it!
“The response to last year’s show was overwhelming, both in the studio when we filmed it, and at home when it went to air. Spicks And Specks has a special place in our hearts, and I’m genuinely excited to make a few more specials for the ABC.”
Full details are yet to be revealed (including dates, guests, and musical performers), but you can be sure we’ll tell you all about it once we receive further info!
