In the ever-changing landscape of Australian television, few shows have matched the success of Home And Away. The iconic drama, which has enjoyed 36 seasons since it launched in 1988, continues to be a popular fixture on our screens, this year claiming the Logie for Most Popular Drama Series.
It’s a back-to-back win (after taking home the statuette in 2022 too) for the show against strong competition.
“There were amazing shows in that category, so we figured our only chance was that it’s a Popular category and we’ve been rating well for a number of years,” says Ray Meagher, 79, recipient of the 2010 Gold Logie Award, to TV WEEK.
Although it was unexpected, we are merely happy.
Five cast members, Ray, James Stewart, Emily Symons, Lynne McGranger, and Ada Nicodemou, were nominated for individual awards as part of the celebration, demonstrating their continued popularity with viewers.
“The best drama finds a way to evolve and bring the audience along with you,” says Georgie Parker, 58, of their success. “Our writers’ ability to provide readers with engaging content is one of their strengths.”
With their fans at the forefront of their minds and ongoing success, Home And Away’s future appears more promising than the sky over Summer Bay.
“Our audience never gets lost,” claims Ray. “We have a substantial cast of recurring people, and every few years, new faces join them to share their tales. But when viewers tune in and see one of the classics, they recognize the program. Their location in Summer Bay is known.
