Hunted Australia 2023

Hunted Australia 2024 has a new name and a fresh, epic twist

Everyone's fave cat-and-mouse series is back!

Everyone’s favourite ultimate game of tag is back in 2024, but this time, Hunted Australia bears an all-new twist.

The edge-of-your-set series returns for Season Three and follows nine pairs of everyday Australians, dubbed “Fugitives”, on the run from a team of skilled “Hunters” working their goddamned hardest to capture them.

While the first two seasons of Hunted Australia saw its winners split a $100,000 cash prize, 2024 ups the stakes with $1 million up for grabs.

So, what else do we know about Hunted Australia 2024?

Official Synopsis

Nine pairs of ordinary Australians turn into shrewd Fugitives, with their eyes on the prize – one million dollars – which is being held at the Savings Bank of Ballarat. It’s a modern-day bank heist as the Fugitives break into the bank and steal the money, before making their getaway to disappear without a trace. 

The goal is to make it to the extraction point in 20 days, all while evading capture from the Hunters, a team of some of the best investigators formally of the AFP, ADF, and British Intelligence, as well as special operations and cyber security experts.  

These dedicated, experienced, and sharply trained Hunters must use their arsenal of tools to capture the Fugitives at large. They must be ruthless in their conclusions, masterful in their tactics, and relentless in their captures.    

The Hunters will stop at nothing to outthink, outsmart, and outrun the Fugitives striving to escape. If they evade capture, the money is theirs to keep. 

What is Hunted Australia 2024‘s twist?

Channel 10 dropped the first promo for the new season on June 16, which revealed the series has officially been renamed Hunted Australia: Million Dollar Heist.

“Stealing one million dollars, that’s the easy part,” the video teased.

The game will kick off with the Fugitives attempting to pull off a bank robbery.

With $1 million up for grabs, the contestants must go on the run with whatever cash they can steal.

If they can evade the Hunters for 20 days straight, they get to keep the money. Simples!
