TVNZ and NZ On Air are pleased to announce that the hit local drama Go Girls will be back for a third series.

The popular TV2 drama has seen huge audience growth this season and has won $6,702,000 in funding from NZ On Air for a further 13 episodes.

Jeff Latch, Head of TV ONE and TV2 says, “Go Girls has consistently dominated its timeslot on Thursday nights and we believe the audience will be as delighted as we are that Kevin and his crew will be back for a further series.”

Jane Wrightson, Chief Executive of NZ On Air says, “it is fantastic when local drama series attract and grow an audience in the way that Go Girls has. Local drama has been particularly strong in the last couple of years and NZ On Air is pleased to be able to support Go Girls in another series.”

Chris Bailey, Managing Director of South Pacific Pictures says, “We are delighted to be making a third series of Go Girls and thrilled that the audience love the show as much as we do.”

Production on the third series will commence later in the year and it will screen on TV2 in 2011.

    “Go Girls gets $6.7 million for 13 new episodes (third season). Seems a lot? Veteran Outrageous Fortune S6 got $8.6 million for 18 eps” – kiwidaveg

    My reply:

    Adjusting for inflation, Outrageous Fortune received between approximately $370,000 and $530,000 per episode over six seasons. Go Girls is getting approximately $515,000 per episode.
