Jon Kelly announces second season of Aussie Truck Rehab

Aussie Truck Rehab star Jon Kelly has confirmed there will be a second season of the popular TV show.  

Season 1 of the program, which followed Brisbane-based Kelly and his team as they restored and upgraded trucks, premiered on Discovery earlier this year.  

Now Kelly has revealed they have already begun shooting some footage for Season 2.  

“I can confirm there will be another series,” he told Big Rigs.  

“We’re just working out timings and start dates.  

“We have started filming snippets of certain trucks that we’re doing in the next series now.  

“But we won’t be filming full-time until the middle of next year.” 

Kelly said fans can expect great stories and “more cool trucks”.  

He continued: “Our team has expanded, and there are some familiar faces from the old HHA crew from years ago.  

“We’re building a really good team of both guys and girls to put out the best trucks in the country.”  

As for what the projects will be, Kelly says he’s got a mix of his own trucks and customers’ trucks in mind.  

“We’ve got projects for customers in line. And I’m my own worst enemy – I’ve got plenty of my own trucks there that need to be done as well.”  

Kelly originally shot to fame through the hit 2012 show MegaTruckers, which followed his since-collapsed business Heavy Haulage Australia.  

Since then, Kelly has founded a new truck dealership and a refurbishment business, Heavy Haulage Assets. 

Aussie Truck Rehab came about when the makers of MegaTruckers approached him about bringing that original show back.  

“They wanted to make another series of MegaTruckers, but my business and what I’m doing now has evolved into something different,” he said.  

“So then it got pitched that we do a show based on the truck sales business and the refurb business, because there are such good stories in the trucks that we do and who we do them for.  

“The series was then launched around that, and it’s been a really cool to do something very original and showcase the Australian truck industry in a positive light.”
