As the season nears its end, the debut hit series continues to dominate in Total TV audiences

Hosted by Amanda Keller OAM, stream Alone Australia: The Reunion after the final episodes on SBS On Demand on Wednesday 24 May or tune into SBS on Thursday 25 May at 7.30pm.

The special episode follows the phenomenal success of the series, with the first four episodes of Alone Australia surpassing the one million viewer mark.

SBS continues to dominate digital viewing taking out eight of the top 10 slots in OzTAM 28 Day VPM rankings.

Alone Australia has become the breakout new TV series of the year.With just three episodes and three participants remaining, audiences continue to soar with the first four episodes having now all passed the one million viewer mark driven largely by the show's incredible success on SBS On Demand.

Off the back of this success, SBS is excited to announce a special one-hour program,Alone Australia: The Reunion. Hosted by Amanda Keller OAM, the showbrings together the entire cast for the first time since they were dropped in the remote wilds of Western Tasmania/ lutruwita, completely isolated from the world and each other, stripped of modern possessions, contact and comforts, to self-document their experience.

The final two episodes of Alone Australia premiere on Wednesday 24 May at 7.30pm and 8.30pm, exclusively on SBS and SBS On Demand, and culminate with Alone Australia: The Reunion at 9.30pm on SBS On Demand and Thursday 25 May at 7.30pm on SBS.

After months of isolation for some, challenged by the merciless forces of nature, hunger, and loneliness, join Beck, Chris, Duane, Gina, Jimmy. Kate. Michael, Mike, Peter and Rob as they discuss their experiences and reveal never-before-seen footage.

Host of Alone Australia: The Reunion Amanda Keller said: I have been a massive fan of Alone for years and have been glued to the Australian series (even though it has slowed down my consumption of boiled eels). I can't wait to debrief with the cast and hear all the behind-the-scenes stories of their incredible experience.

SBS Head of Unscripted Joseph Maxwell said: SBS is incredibly proud of how Alone Australia has become the standout new hit series of 2023, as Australians have followed the highs and lows of our incredible cast over the past six weeks. They've battled everything from extreme weather, hunger, and loneliness - along with falling tree limbs, slippery eels, and clever pademelons - and we know fans will be thrilled to see them come together in studio for this special program, Alone Australia: The Reunion. Expect tears, laughter and exclusive scenes giving insight into their experience.

ITV Studios Australia Head of Factual Ben Ulm said: We're doing this for entirely selfish reasons. These 10 remarkable unique individuals have shared with us their most intimate, vulnerable, as well as triumphant moments over a long period of time. Executive Producer Riima Daher and her team sweated on their respective journeys every hour of every day, sight unseen! And we are so proud that Australia has now embraced each and every participant. I just want to hang out with them again and tell tales out of school. For individuals who like being alone, this is more of a re-union with their audience, and a celebration of extraordinary humanity. I only had to ask Amanda once.

Ratings Snapshot - Key callouts:

As temperatures plummeted across the Eastern seaboard this week, audiences have continued to be captivated by the experiences of the Alone Australia participants in the wilds of Western Tasmania with the first four episodes of Alone Australia all having now passed the 1 million viewer mark driven largely by the show's incredible success on SBS On Demand with almost half the audience coming from online.
