“Bushwhacked! - Series 2 shows off yet more of Australia's unique wildlife and culture in a way that is equal parts exciting and intriguing and we're really thrilled that children across Germany will be able to continue this fantastic journey through SUPER RTL,” said Jenny Buckland, the CEO of ACTF.

Carsten Göttel, the program director at SUPER RTL is happy to have the chance to air a second season with another 13 episodes starring numerous exciting new adventures.
