Nine commissions a new season of THE CELEBRITY APPRENTICE

One of TV’s original reality formats, The Apprentice looks set to return to Australian screens.

The Australian Media Diary has revealed a decision by Nine to commission a new season of The Celebrity Apprentice which will air on the network in 2021.

TV Blackbox understands no decision has been made yet regarding who will host the new season which will be produced by Warner Bros for Nine.

The Celebrity Apprentice last aired on Nine in 2015 in a format that was hosted by Wizard Home Loans founder, Mark Bouris. The winner of that series was Sophie Monk.

The decision by Nine to return to The Celebrity Apprentice format comes at a time when networks are looking to take fewer risks by commissioning known formats which can be produced relatively quickly in a controlled environment without risk of production disruptions due to COVID-19.
