Is Bondi Rescue Canceled? [2023 Update]

Bondi Rescue is an Australian reality TV show that is famous for being unscripted and real. The series revolves around the daily lives of Aussie lifeguards as they protect people on one of the busiest beaches in the world, Bondi beach, Sydney.

The documentary TV show first aired on Network Ten on February 15, 2006. So far there are a total of 16 seasons. Its last season aired in 2021, and ever since then, fans have been wondering if Bondi Rescue is canceled.

Is Bondi Rescue Canceled?

No, Bondi Rescue is not canceled. On 12 October 2022, it was officially announced on the Bondi Rescue social media sites that the show will be returning for season 17 in 2023. 

The last season of the show, season 16, aired on Network 10 in 2021. Ever since then, there have been speculations about the renewal of the show. Before the announcement of season 17, it was thought that the show is canceled because it lacks diversity.

Daniel Monaghan, 10’s Director of Programming, said in an interview:

“It hasn’t played into the decision of Bondi Rescue. It’s been on for about 16 years. Diversity is incredibly important to us but it can come in the form of contributors and people who work behind the scenes, not necessarily just the cast.”

After the comment regarding the show, and no news regarding renewal, fans thought the show has been axed. However, in October 2022, Bondi Rescue has been renewed for season 17.
