Love is in the air this May when the award-winning Love on the Spectrum returns to the ABC for a second season.
Narrated by Brooke Satchwell, this much loved 5-part Australian original concept series is set to return to ABC TV and view this May.
Warm-hearted and uplifting, Love on the Spectrum continues to tell the stories of people on the autism spectrum as they navigate the world of dating and relationships.
With a few familiar faces, and some delightful new ones, this new season represents an even wider range of people and personalities, showing just how diverse the autism spectrum really is.
In the first series, Australia fell in love with Michael and his search for true love. Michael is still a single man, but ever determined, he’s back to continue his quest and hopefully this time he will fulfil his dream.
Also returning are dinosaur loving Mark and engaged couple Jimmy and Sharnae. Joining them on the search for love are singles Kassandra and Jayden, who represent both experienced and first-time daters, and Ronan and Teo, two young singles who are bursting with nerves and excitement at the prospect of starting their dating journeys.
Helping them navigate their way is relationship expert Jodi Rogers who continues to provide support and tips in her refreshingly down to earth way.
This season we see romantic sparks between singles who date both neurodiverse and neurotypical partners. We explore heterosexuality, bisexuality, and pansexuality.
And we watch the blossoming of love grow between young adults with intellectual disabilities. The one thing they all have in common: they all wear their hearts on their sleeves.
Produced by Northern Pictures (Employable Me, Magical Land of Oz, Changing Minds), Love on the Spectrum was commissioned by the ABC as part of its commitment to bring diverse stories, including those about people with disabilities, into focus.
