Notes: APTCH was cancelled by Seven but the series was given new life when a deal with Foxtel brought a commitment to a third and fourth series. As a result of the unexpected cancellation, the true cliff-hanger ending was not shown [pics 13,14]. Instead, an alternative ending aired to conclude the story. The true ending aired for the first time Sept 13, 2015 in advance of the series 3 premiere.
