One Of The Greatest Shows To Hit Aussie TV Is Coming Back!

Sure there has been some great shows to hit our TV screens over the years, but there was nothing quite like Monkey Magic.

The Japanese drama was an Aussie cult classic in the 80’s and 90’s.


Playing on the ABC, the show was filled with actions and humour as we followed Monkey – he who was “born from an egg on a mountain top”, on his adventures.

If you were one of those fans who quickly found themselves enthralled in the show and its redubbed English soundtrack, we have some great news…

Because it’s coming back!

The ABC, Netflix and TVNZ are teaming up to bring Monkey back as The Legend Of Monkey.


With production already underway, it’s expected to hit our TVs next year as part of a ten-part series.

This time it will star a cast of Aussie and New Zealand actors including Chai Hansen, Luciane Buchanan, Josh Thomson and Emilie Cocquerel.

We. Can’t. Wait.
