The Fighting Season – Premieres Sunday, October 28 at 8.30pm

Fighting Season, is a new six-part event TV drama about Australian soldiers that will premiere Sunday, October 28 at 8.30pm on Fox Showcase or you can stream it on Foxtel Now.

Set in 2010, a platoon of soldiers returns from Afghanistan after a controversial mission where their commander was killed.

Fighting Season is the story of these men, the unfolding mystery of what really happened, and importantly the impact keeping this secret has on them and their families. It delves into the real impact of trying to re-integrate into civilian and family life, and how our soldiers and their families continue to be affected both mentally and physically when they return home from war.

You don’t stop fighting just because you’re home.


These stories are important, a significant part of our modern history that until now have not been explored in the drama space on our TV screens.  It is equally important to the producers that the military community, both serving and ex, have the opportunity to see their lives represented on our drama screens.



Episodes 1 & 2 will also be screened at the Veteran’s Film Festival on November 3, with a Q&A with some of the cast and crew to take place after the screening.
