Kath and Kim‘s huge TV special finally gets a release date and the pictures look incredible

So many things can change in 20 years... and yet, some things can remain exactly the same.

And that is apparent for Kath Day-Knight and Kim Craig - known by Aussies as the iconic Melbourne mum-and-daughter duo Kath & Kim.

Their huge reunion special has finally been confirmed to be airing on Channel Seven, which will welcome several familiar faces, some special guests, and one person who was sorely missed.


The foxy morons of Fountain Lakes will let audiences back into their lives for something that audiences are sure to find 'fascinating and delightful'.

Executive Producer Rick McKenna told the Daily Mail that 'it was "great fun getting the team back together, plenty of laughs all around, which we look forward to sharing very soon'.

The Herald Sun reports the first episodes will be dropping next month.

McKenna is married to Gina Riley, who plays the foxy Kim.


Seven Chief Content Officer Entertainment Programming Angus Ross revealed that he still struggles to maintain eye contact with the iconic Kath Day-Knight 20 years on.

"In fact, it's safe to say she was my first crush," Ross told the Daily Mail.

'While I still find it difficult to look Kath in the eyes without blushing, it is an honour to be able to reunite them with their adoring fans."

Jane Turner, the genius behind Kath, told the Herald Sun that, you guessed it, Kim is still living at home in Fountain Lakes.


"Well Kim has never actually moved out for more than a week, so it’s not much of a reunion, as [a] here we go again peoples," Day-Knight said.

Kim is Epponee-Rae's 'momager', telling the Herald Sun that they are 'working on her having a moment and being a Thing'.

Rest assured, Kim is probably still on the couch coated in a fine dusting of pizza shapes seasoning.


Kath and Kim will be joined by their trusted entourage of Sharon Strzelecki (Magda Szubanski), Kel Knight (Glenn Robbins) and Brett Craig (Peter Rowsthorn).

Kath & Kim: Our Effluent Life will premiere on Channel Seven later this year.
