The Time of Our Lives is an Australian television drama series which premiered on ABC TV on 10 June 2013, at 8.30pm. It is a JAHM Pictures production in association with ABC TV and Film Victoria; The producer is Amanda Higgs (co-creator of The Secret Life of Us) and the principal writer is Judi McCrossin (The Secret Life of Us, Tangle, The Surgeon, Beaconsfield). They co-created the series.[1][2]

The show follows the lives of the Tivolli clan, an Australian extended family in inner-city Melbourne. Aged in their thirties and forties, the characters are occupied with career advancement, home ownership, child-rearing and the vagaries of relationships.[3]

Aired in a time-slot that meant it competed with other Australian drama shows on commercial free-to-air channels, the series debuted with a "respectable" audience size.[4] The show was renewed for a second season on 18 October 2013.[5] The second season premiered on 26 June 2014. On 5 September 2014, it was announced that the ABC had cancelled The Time of Our Lives.[6]
