'There Could Be Some More': Adam Hills Confirms Talks Of New 'Spicks & Specks' Season

15 April 2020 | 8:45 am | Neil Griffiths

"There was talk quite recently about filming, maybe, a short series of ten."

This Sunday, ABC will air the third of four Spicks & Specks specials but according to Adam Hills, a new season of the TV music quiz show could be on the way. 

Appearing on the latest episode of The Green Room with Neil Griffiths podcast, the Spicks & Specks host said there was talk "quite recently" about shooting a new ten-episode season.

"I don't think we'd ever do 40 again. I think that just would take up too much time," Hills told host Neil Griffiths.

Like most industries around the world, the COVID pandemic has had a massive impact and could drastically change plans this year.

"There was talk of doing a series of ten at some point this year, but then I had to juggle that around The Last Leg and the Paralympics. And now, the Paralympics have been cancelled as well, or postponed, so there's definitely a possibility [of more Spicks & Specks episodes]," Hills said.

"It also, again, comes down to whether or not you can still have people on a panel and people in the audience. If we ever go back to those days... [Team captains Alan Brough and Myf Warhurst] and I all want it to happen.

"It's just a matter of logistically pulling it together. But yeah, I think there could be some more."
