“Some people made Banana Bread in Lockdown. We made a new series of Spicks and Specks,” Adam Hills said in a press statement.

“Not only did it give us all an excuse to get out of the house, it gave us a chance to showcase a new breed of Australian Musicians and Comedians, while also catching up with some old favourites.

“I’m so proud of the shows we made last year, and I can’t wait for the rest of Australia to see them”.

A press release teases that the reboot will introduce new games to the show, and is also set to feature live performances.


The upcoming season will be the first full new series of Spicks and Specks since 2014. In the years since, a handful of specials have aired, with the most recent focusing on the music of the 2010s. The episode premiered in December and featured special guests Vance Joy and Kate Miller-Heidke.
