"The unique thing about Nowhere Boys as a series is that it constantly re-invents itself. Series one was about an alternative universe, Series two was about the space in between universes, and in Series three we meet a whole new bunch of heroes who find themselves trapped in a totally empty world. We are proud to introduce a brand new cast which reflects a diverse and truthful portrait of Australia today. As ever, the series is fun, spooky, magical and mysterious."

Two Moons Rising, stylised as Nowhere Boys: Two Moons Rising, is the third season of Nowhere Boys. It aired in 2016 beginning on November 11, on ABC Me. The 13-part series was said to dive deeper into the existing Nowhere Boys world mythology.[1]

Set at least three years after The Book of Shadows,[2] the season introduced five new Nowhere Boys: Luke Hamill, Heath Buckland, Jesse Banda, Nicco Pandelis and Ben Ripley, who were officially announced on May 5, 2016,[3] portrayed by Kamil Ellis, Joe Klocek, Jordie Race-Coldrey, Luca Sardelis and William McKenna, respectively.[3][4] Filming ended on July 24, 2016. A preview of the second episode of Two Moons Rising was shown on ABC Me on August 19, which was a short scene, and a trailer was later aired on ABC Me at 9am on October 16, 2016.

The series premiered with "The New Boy," the first episode of the season, which aired on November 11, 2016, on ABC Me, directly followed by "What Happened to Bremin?". Two Moons Rising later aired on the Family Channel in Canada.

It is followed by a fourth and final season, which first aired on December 3, 2018.

Official descriptionEdit

When tech-nerd and sci-fi fanatic Luke (Kamil Ellis), arrives for his first day at Bremin High, all appears to be tiresomely ordinary, but what he doesn’t know is that school loner Ben (William McKenna) has been awaiting his arrival to put together a new gang of Nowhere Boys. Three other Nowhere Boys have already been identified; 'bad boy' Heath (Joe Klocek) high achiever and soccer star, Nicco (Luca Sardelis) and musical theatre geek Jesse (Jordie Race-Coldrey).

Coinciding with Luke's arrival, the people of Bremin start disappearing. Doubly peculiar is that, not only are they disappearing, but they're being wiped from everyone's memory and only the Nowhere Boys have noticed! Eventually Luke, Heath, Nicco and Jesse discover they are the last four people in the world. They find themselves thrust together in an eerily empty wasteland, forced to figure out how to save the town.[1]

  • The subtitle of the season refers to the Mega Demon causing two moons to rise in the sky, before disappearing people.[5]

  • Two Moons Rising has many callbacks and references to the adventure of the original Nowhere Boys, particularly in Jesse's musical, Lost in the Forest.
  • The series was nominated for the Most Outstanding Children's Program at the Logie Awards in 2017.[7]
