Ten is bringing back Family Feud for a special series featuring frontline workers who have battled crises in Australia this year.

With Grant Denyer as host, the show is returning for a 10-episode series airing in primetime that will offer essential works such as nurses, firefighters and teachers the chance to win $100,000.

Production by Ten and Fremante will start from July.

“From devastating bushfires to a global pandemic, Australians have taken a battering, so what better way to show our appreciation to our heroic frontline workers than by asking them: ‘Name the first thing you would do if you won $100,000?’,” Ten says.

“Which may actually come in handy, because Network 10 is giving these very special families a chance to win up to $100,000.”

Applications for the series are now open, with Ten calling on doctors, nurses, paramedics, fire fighters, teachers and more to come forward.

“We are delighted that even during these unprecedented times our team have been able to work with Ten to relaunch one of our most successful and much-loved formats globally,” says Fremantle Asia-Pacific CEO Chris Oliver-Taylor.

Family Feud was cancelled after four years by Ten in 2018. The show, playing in the 6pm timeslot at the time, began to weaken in ratings.
