Something in the Air is an Australian television soap opera transmitted by the Australian Broadcasting Corporation between 2000 and 2002. It was one of the first programs in Australia that was filmed in widescreen. It won the AACTA Award for Best Television Drama Series in 2001.

The series initially screened four episodes weekly, Monday to Thursday at 6:30 pm and received moderate success. Ratings began to drop after the show was moved to Saturday evenings in which it was cut down to two episodes shown in a one-hour block. It later resumed its usual four-episode weekly run, however, it was screened in a 6:00 pm timeslot, putting it up against the higher rated Seven and Nine news bulletins, which ultimately led to its cancellation.[1]

The series was repeated on the-then ABC2 from 11 February 2008.[1]
