The program looks back at particular periods in recent history with a specific slant towards major events and popular culture, with a focus on Australian life at the time. Along with edited segments, each show features studio interviews with noted figures and celebrities who have seemingly ended their 15 minutes of fame and gone into obscurity, leading the presenters to ask them the question, "where are they now?". Cast reunions (such as bringing together the original Fletcher family from the soap opera Home and Away) are also common segments on the show.
A revival of a previous show of the same name hosted by Peter Luck in 1997, the revamped Where Are They Now? debuted on Sunday night at 6:30pm in February 2006 to high ratings. The show went on hiatus from June to early August 2006 to make way for the celebrity singing competition It Takes Two, but returned to the same time slot after the finale of that series. Numerous episodes revisited guests and stories previously featured on Peter Luck's 1997 version.
Where Are They Now? returned for a second series in May 2007, and a one-off episode aired on 16 November 2008.
