Fremantle indie, Thames, has won a second order for rejuvenated gameshow Family Fortunes fronted by Gino D’Acampo.

20 new episodes have been ordered and are set to air in 2021.

D’Acampo says: “As soon as we’d finished the last season of Family Fortunes, I wanted to get straight back into the studio and film a load more episodes. Thankfully, the show went down very well with the viewers and I’m so happy to be back as I had the best time. The contestants really do make the show as brilliant as it is, and I know we’re going to be hearing a lot more weird and wonderful answers to the questions I’ll be asking.”

Amelia Brown, Managing Director of Thames adds: “It brings a lot of joy to all of those who work on Family Fortunes to know that the show has been so successful in such a period of uncertainty. It seems that viewers want to escape with the family and be entertained for an hour every Sunday night and we couldn’t be more pleased that the show is returning for even more episodes.”

Katie Rawcliffe, ITV’s Head of Entertainment Commissioning said “We’re delighted to recommission Family Fortunes after such a popular kick off series with Gino D’Acampo. It’s proving to be perfect viewing for families up and down the country and I’ve no doubt that the new series will be just as enjoyable to watch.”

The series was commissioned by Katie Rawcliffe, ITV’s Head of Entertainment Commissioning and Joe Mace, Commissioning Editor for ITV. The series will be Executive Produced by Ash Whitehouse for Thames.
