Everyone’s favourite almost-functional Asian Australian family, The Laws, are back – returning with a double episode of The Family Law on Thursday, 15 June at 8.30pm on SBS. After a summer to remember, Jenny Law and Danny Law have amicably parted ways, and a wiser, more-mature Benjamin now understands that sometimes, parents just work better apart.

New beginnings

With the holidays over the Laws are turning a new leaf – or, as Jenny calls it, a “new flap”. Danny – having sold Happy Dragon – opens ‘Asian Alley’, an Asian grocery store and his first entrée into retail, while Jenny embarks on a quest of self-discovery. Resuming his role as family fixer, Benjamin helps his mother “find herself”, his father prove himself, and tries to stop his family from going off the rails – all while juggling his star-making turn in Sacred Heart High’s ground-breaking school production of a feel-good hit about infanticide, Medea.

This season, the Laws are starting anew while trying to stop old wounds from festering, and they’re taking series favourites (nosey aunties Maisy and Daisy; deranged drama teacher Mallory Mallory; serial shyster Beryl Streep; the annoyingly perfect Thomson family) along for the ride.

And now with subtitles

The Family Law is English-language, but with the aim of bringing the show to even more Australians, the new season of the much loved comedy drama will once again be available with simplified Chinese subtitles, in addition to Korean and Vietnamese subtitled versions, for those watching via SBS On Demand - available anytime on viewers favourite device.

We're incredibly excited to see the show back

SBS Director of Television and Online Content Marshall Heald said:

“After a hugely successful award-winning first season, we’re thrilled to be back with a second season of this original and uniquely SBS series. Season one of this bold and clever show really resonated with Australian families and audiences.

“Bringing this fantastically diverse cast back to our TV screens for a second season enables us to explore and navigate through the next chapter of their lives – doing it all in the hilariously lovable family Law style.

The Family Law airs on SBS every Thursday night at 8:30pm. New episodes and the entire first season are streaming now via SBS On Demand:
