Last year we saw Daniella and her nine daughters go through life's highs and lows as Australian audiences sat like flies-on-the-wall, watching their household antics unfold.

The two youngest, Jessica and Hannah, navigated their adolescent dilemmas; sister number seven, Aleisha was fresh out high school and figuring out how to take on the world; and Kiara — aka: 'The Thinker' of the family — was faced with some life-changing news — she's was pregnant.

So, what's in store for Season Three? Filming is currently underway in Perth and with three years since the show initially launched, no doubt some big changes have happened to the family of strong Aboriginal women. 


NITV Channel Manager, Tanya Orman says when the production arrived back in 2016 there was nothing like it on Australian television.

"It’s really fantastic to see such strong and powerful Aboriginal women represented on screen," she said in a statement.

Creator Karla Hart told NITV that the most rewarding part of the series was being able to tell such stories of a unique family of strong Indigenous women, sharing their strong connection to culture with Australia and the world.

Filmmaker, Karla Hart broke ground when she created Australia's only First Nations 'reality' television program. Family Rules returns for its second season with more humorous and feisty entertainment.

"The family is growing and there are more great moments that come with major milestones that are happening this year," Hart said.

"Daniella’s house is still the hub of the family’s lives but exploration and respect for culture is still high on the agenda, with new adventures that take them into the heart of the country." 

All the drama and chaos is set to return to NITV, with triumphs and tribulations of the Rule sisters as they balance their aspiration with the values of their mother.

We look forward to seeing what comes next for Daniella and her daughters.


Family Rules Season Three will feature six half-hour episodes and air on NITV in 2020.

Catch up on Season One & Two is available on SBS On Demand
