The highly anticipated release for season two of The Test has been locked in, with January 13 marking the date for Cricket Australia to welcome viewers into the inner sanctum via Amazon Prime Video.

The behind-the-scenes nature of the docu-series delves deeply into the professional environment of an Australian Cricketer, primarily covering their 2021-22 season within the men's side.

With the trailer dropping in conjunction with the confirmation of the release date, viewers can expect the exit of Tim Paine to be highlighted, as well as the story of Pat Cummins being thrown into the deep end in taking over the Test captaincy reigns.

The doco will also shine a light on the departure of Justin Langer following the 4-0 Ashes whitewash, in addition to the overseas tours of Pakistan and Sri Lanka respectively in the subcontinent.

The series has been divided into four parts in the second instalment of the Test, with a widened global reach forecasted, it is estimated that over 200 countries and territories are set to have access.

Cricket Australia's Head of Broadcast & Production Richard Ostroff commented on the release whilst showing his appreciation to the team assembled in getting to the finished product stage.

"Season One of The Test on Prime Video took fans into the inner sanctum of the national team and enthralled fans across the country. We knew Season Two needed to live up to the standard of its predecessor whilst offering new insights for viewers," he said.

"As a result of the terrific collaboration between our players and the production teams at CA, Whooshka media, and Prime Video, I am thrilled to say Season Two does just that.

"Viewers will experience the unique world our elite Men's cricketers inhabit, whilst seeing from the inside how they navigate significant challenges both on and off the field. It is compelling."

Co-directors Sheldon Wynne and Adrian Brown anxiously awaited a second chance to invite viewers into the change rooms from the comfort of their own living rooms and share their work with the public.

"While Season One focussed on the rebuilding of the Australian men's team in the eyes of the Australian public, this series takes viewers closer to the player experience and into their lives off the pitch," they said.

"Whether it be Pat Cummins talking us through the challenges of juggling his test captaincy with his new fatherhood, or Usman Khawaja speaking at an Islamic college about his challenges growing up, the stories of the players are rare, and sometimes profound, insights into this new generation of cricketers.

"We feel audiences are going to get to know the Australian men's Test team in a way they never have before."
