The Tribe has been apart of my life and still to this day 2017.

I find myself watching the series from season 1 to series 5 with many un answered questions! all though the books are available I think it would be amazing if the show would come back as an online series and we would make pledges (Donations)  to bring back a much loved TV Show. 


The Tribe is a New Zealand/British post-apocalyptic fictional TV series primarily aimed at teenagers. It is set in a near-future in which all adults have been wiped out by a deadly virus, leaving the children of the world to fend for themselves. The show's focus is on an unnamed city inhabited by tribes of children and teenagers. It was primarily filmed in and around Wellington, New Zealand.

The series was created by Raymond Thompson and Harry Duffin (from an original idea by Raymond Thompson) and was developed and produced by the Cloud 9 Screen Entertainment Group in conjunction with the UK's Channel 5. It has aired on over 40 broadcast networks around the world.

It debuted on Channel 5 on 24 April 1999 and quickly gained a large fan base From 1999 to 2003, five series and 260 half-hour episodes were produced. Series 6 was scheduled to begin filming in 2003, but Nick Wilson, of Channel 5, and Raymond Thompson felt that "although the show was still performing well, the cast was getting too old and the series was beginning to stretch the core proposition." They felt the characters were not kids fending for themselves without adults any more. Therefore a season 6 was never filmed but was instead made into a book called "The Tribe A New Dawn" As a result, the show was cancelled. Channel 5 aired the final two episodes on 6 September 2003.


A sequel to The Tribe, The New Tomorrow, was produced by Cloud 9 and Channel 5 and aired in 2005. It was aimed at a younger audience, 8 to 12-year olds, and told the story of descendants from the original series with a new cast.
