Discovery NZ has announced casting calls are underway for its upcoming 2022 reality shows Masterchef NZ, Heartbreak Island NZ, Tracked and Sort Your Life Out.

They are part of the most ambitious programming slate in flagship channel Three's history, which also includes new shows Nadia's Farm and My Town Makeover, along with returning shows The Masked Singer NZ, Dancing With The Stars NZ, Match Fit, the Patrick Gower: On series, David Lomas Investigates and 7 Days.

To celebrate its 10th season, The Block NZ is mixing things up. In 2022 four fan-favourite couples from previous seasons will have a second chance to win in The Block: Redemption.

More information on each of the new shows is as follows:

  • Nadia's Farm
    Follows Nadia Lim and her family on their biggest adventure yet as they tackle the world of sustainable farming in Queenstown, New Zealand. Together with husband Carlos Bagrie, a fourth generation Southland farmer, the couple will work with locals and experts to help them transform their historic station into an ethical farm of the future.
  • Sort Your Life Out
    The average kiwi home contains a staggering 64,000 items and living in all that clutter is making us miserable! But imagine if the entire contents of your home were laid out before you, making you decide what to keep and what to throw away. Sort Your Life Out puts into practice and assembles a crack team to help transform the most cluttered homes.
  • Tracked
    This daring new survival show features challenges designed to be the most extreme, dangerous and demanding ever seen on television. Eight teams of two will bungee out of a helicopter to the drop zone then race through epic and harsh NZ landscapes to reach the evacuation zone and the helicopter out for a cash prize, before they are caught by a group of elite trackers.
  • Heartbreak Island NZ
    This exclusive ThreeNow only offering is described as the ultimate dating show where everyone pairs up while facing challenges along the way. They will need to decide whether to stay or stray in the show's unique 'Passion Plays' and work out if they've found real love, all the while playing the game to avoid elimination and facing the wharf walk of shame to elimination.
  • Masterchef NZ
    Last on our screens in 2015 the global family favourite is set to take on a distinctive Kiwi taste with local amateur cooks keen to show the country they have what it takes in the kitchen. Inspiring food lovers everywhere, Masterchef NZ has produced some of the most-loved Kiwi chefs, and this season will be no different.
