Join us in kicking off Series Mania with the rousing return of Deborah Mailman and Rachel Griffiths in Australia's world renowned political drama.

“A mouthy blackfella for Prime Minister... I’d like to see that”

The second season of Total Control picks up where Senator Alex Irving’s (Deborah Mailman) crusade left off, as she vies to hold everyone to account – from the Prime Minister to the voting public. Loyalties are shifted and tested, as Alex struggles to walk the tightrope of doing what’s in the best interest for the people of Australia while keeping her personal integrity intact.

Deborah Mailman shines, as always, in a stunning ensemble including the crème de la crème of Aussie talent: Rachel Griffiths, Wayne Blair, Rob Collins and William McInnes. With the action taking place everywhere from the high-stakes halls of Canberra to the pubs of rural Queensland, this new season of Total Control is everything you want in an Australian political drama.

The first 2 episodes (45 mins each) will screen in this program. The remaining episodes are coming soon to the ABC in 2021.
