Following the success of Old People’s Home For 4 Year Olds across two seasons, ABC in Australia has announced the format’s first spinoff. New series Old People’s Home For Teenagers is set to air in 2022.
The success of Old People’s Home For 4 Year Olds has paved the way for a bunch of bigger kids to join a bold groundbreaking social experiment as Old People’s Home For Teenagers debuts.
Presumed polar opposites, older people and teens in fact have much in common. Both can experience loneliness and isolation impacting their health and wellbeing.
Having seen how intergenerational care can impact the health and happiness of the elderly, the new series will take a new perspective, and test if casting aside preconceived notions and spending quality time together can help both teenagers and older Australians live more fulfilling lives.
Can sharing seemingly everyday tasks from cooking to technology build the connection needed to improve the overall wellbeing, confidence and mood of both age groups?
The award-winning production of Old People’s Home for 4 Year Olds has been a major success for ABC in Australia, where the second season aired in May of this year to impressive ratings, widespread acclaim and viewer praise.
