RTE has announced a big switch up for the Fair City schedule as we enter the summer months.
It comes as ITV has revised their times for UK soaps Coronation Street and Emmerdale, and BBC’s EastEnders. This leaves Fair City in a predicament as they try to accommodate viewers.
Now, producers have announced that commencing from Sunday 12th June, Fair City will no longer air on Wednesday nights but Friday nights instead.
This will ensure that viewers will still get their usual 4 episodes per week. As for time slot changes, Sunday and Tuesday nights will remain the same at 8pm, Friday night’s episode will air at 7.30pm and Thursday’s episode will air at a later time of 8.30pm.
Sharing the drama that viewers can look forward to on the summer schedule Producer Brigie deCourcy has said:
“Emotions will run high with the heart-breaking story of Anto Collins’ gambling addiction, how he deceives and weaves in and out of his lies”
“Damien and Mairead struggle to manage sugar daddy turned property developer James Rafferty as his elusive father remains just that, and by the time we reach our anniversary in September, Carrigstown will once again be thrown into even more drama with plenty of surprises, shocks and returning faces.”
