Season 2 of “Love Me” has started filming across Melbourne and various locations in regional Victoria.
The show was the first Australian-made original commissioned by the Foxtel Group for its entertainment streaming service Binge.
Season 1 of the program was nominated for Most Popular Drama Program, which ultimately went to “Home and Away” and Most Outstanding Drama Series (which was won by “The Newsreader”) at the 2022 Logie Awards.
Actors Hugo Weaving, Bojana Novakovic and Will Lodder also scored nominations, while Heather Mitchell was successful in the Most Outstanding Supporting Actress category.
Weaving, Novakovic, Lodder and Mitchell are all returning for Season 2, alongside Bob Morley, Celia Pacquola, Shalom Brune-Franklin and Mitzi Ruhlmann.
Season 2 will also welcome new director Bonnie Moir, who has worked on the likes of “Lion” and “The Cry”.
The series is produced by Nicole O’Donohue, with lead writers Leon Ford and Tamara Asmar. Adele Vuko and Pacquola also each penned an episode.
Alison Hurbert-Burns, executive director at Binge, said the team is thrilled to be back shooting in Melbourne with the incredible cast and creative crew.
“Season 1 resonated with Australian viewers and we can’t wait to pick up the story of The Mathiesons as they realise that with the euphoria of love, comes the complexities of relationships,” she added.
Michael Brooks, managing director of Warner Bros. International Television Australia, said: “We are so proud to begin production of “Love Me” Season 2, off the back of our hugely successful debut series that connected so well with Australian audiences.
“All credit for the success of this stunning series goes to our unbelievably talented cast, our superb writing teams and our passionate, dedicated crew. I want to thank Binge and the Foxtel Group for continuing to support and promote local drama.”
The show was commissioned by the Foxtel Group and distributed by DCD Rights in association with Vic Screen.
