The official Jonah from Tonga trailer!!
BBC Three Jonah From Tonga synopsis:
Chris Lilley’s brand-new series Jonah From Tonga takes us on an adventurous journey into the life of 14-year-old rebellious schoolboy Jonah Takalua, his family, friends and the crew of teachers and counsellors who are exhaustively trying to help him channel his seemingly limitless energy into bigger and brighter things.
Last seen being expelled from Summer Heights High, Jonah has been banished to Tonga to live with his uncle after misbehaviour at school, and is causing more trouble than ever. His father, Rocky, and Aunty Grace take him back to Sydney, Australia to start a new life at a Catholic High School.
Six weeks later, and Jonah is the leader of his new Year 9 gang ‘Fobba-liscious’ who defend their turf against their enemies ‘The Rangas’ and Jonah’s arch nemesis Graydon, the School Captain. The boys attend Lazarus House for learning difficulty students run by Mr Joseph, a vocational-based programme where he uses violence and unorthodox methods to control the class.
Jonah and ‘Fobba-liscious’ allegedly dominate the school as they partake in break dancing, graffiti and flirting with teachers. After school, Jonah reveals he’s been in trouble with the law and loiters with local Polynesian gang ‘The Soldierz’. But at home, despite the loss of his mother at a young age, Jonah’s supportive family believe his future looks bright.
1. Not sure, can’t tell as of yet.
2. There are probably a few reasons - I’m no expert on promotion and all of that but maybe with fans being able to watch it online first, more people will help spread the word on the internet. If the word is spread on the internet, chances are higher of more people tuning in for its TV airing? I’m not really sure though. Also, it’s more convenient for many people to watch TV shows online these days.
Whatever the case, we’re SO excited too!!!!!!!! :D :D :D
Not sure. Jonah himself? :P
Can’t get this out of my head.
