Cricket Australia, Prime Video and Whooshka Media have announced the return of the highly popular documentary series The Test for what will be the most anticipated season so far.
The Test Season Three will feature exclusive behind-the-scenes footage of the Australian men’s team during their highly successful and often dramatic 2023 tour of England as they contest the ICC World Test Championship final against India and strive to retain the Ashes on foreign soil.
To be shown on Prime Video in more than 240 countries and territories in 2024, The Test Season Three provides unparalleled access to the Australian team during their triumph over Virat Kohli’s India in the ICC World Test Championship and the memorable Ashes retention.
Viewers will get an intimate account of Australia’s triumphs as well as rare insight into the challenges and pressure faced by the team as they take on two world class opponents before sometimes hostile crowds.
The Test Season Three is produced by Cricket Australia and Whooshka Media in collaboration with Amazon MGM Studios.
Richard Ostroff, CA Head of Broadcasting and Production said:
“The third season of The Test captures the gripping tussle between Australia and India at the World Test Championship Final, and the extraordinary behind-the-scenes drama of the 2023 Ashes in England.
“Cricket fans in Australia and across the world will ride all the emotions and tight contests as our players battle it out on the biggest stages of all. This series will be the best yet.”
Hushidar Kharas, head of Prime Video Australia and New Zealand said:
“As a cricket fan, I couldn’t wait to see what happened when the unstoppable force of ‘BazBall’ batting came up against the best Test bowling lineup in the world.
“The 2023 Ashes were the most closely contested and memorable of recent times, and I am delighted to be able to relive them along with our customers in Australia and around the world.
“Prime Video is proud to have a long-standing relationship with Cricket Australia following the huge success of Seasons One and Two, and I cannot wait to see how directors Adrian Brown and Sheldon Wynne recount these iconic moments for the Australian cricket team.”
Adrian Brown and Sheldon Brown, from Whooskha Media said:
“The Test Season Two was hugely popular for audiences around the world, and we’re very excited to be returning for a third season with Prime Video and Cricket Australia.
“Given how dramatic the World Test Championship Final and The Ashes in England were, this season promises to share the riveting moments that took place behind the scenes, as well as the inspiring and emotional stories that show just how much this tour meant to our Australian men’s cricket team.”
