Ruling the ratings: heart-stealing family face fears in season 2
The Rule family stole hearts in the first season of fly-on-the-wall series Family Rules. Now they’re back.
The second season of Family Rules begins on NITV on November 14 and it is set to be just as endearing as the first.
Single Mum Daniella Borg and eight of her nine beautiful daughters — aged 14 to 31 — continue to meet life’s challenges.
Film cameras accompany various members of the family as they house hunt, get their driver’s licence, get their first job, go to high school and university, and confront their fears.
In the first episode of the new series, 21-year-old Sharna faces her fear of heights by abseiling.
The new season was filmed over about five or six months last year.
Ms Borg, a Noongar woman and high school Aboriginal Indigenous Education Officer, lives with her family in the outer suburbs of Perth.
She said the family was surprised and delighted when the first season of Family Rules was a hit when it aired in early 2017.
“Who would have thought?” she said.
“It’s just everyday lives but I think that’s what people want to see. They want to see things that are relatable and we’re not that far-fetched — apart from having nine kids!”
