The family-friendly format of Little Big Shots is set to return to Seven as the network looks to rebalance its schedule and move away from relationship drama and dating formats.

A casting call has been published over the weekend looking for kids aged between 4 and 13 who have a "passion or even a wonderful obsession with something."

Hosted by Shane Jacobson, the first episode of Little Big Shots premiered to an audience of 1.6 Million in 2017. A second season of the show was less successful, averaging figures around the 800k mark and prompting the network to rest the format for 2019.

Seven's move back toward family-friendly programming comes after a highly promoted, tawdry season of The Super Switch was dumped from the schedule due to disastrous ratings. A planned revival of Temptation Island was also axed just as filming was due to commence.

An airdate for the third season of Little Big Shots is yet to be confirmed. Seven has been approached for comment.

LITTLE BIG SHOTS is now casting for talent. Applications for children aged between 4 - 13 can be sent to mycastingnet.com. It is produced by Warner Brothers International Television Production Australia for Channel Seven.
