High fives, three cheers and one beloved Aussie drama. Channel 10 and Screen Australia are delighted to announce that Five Bedrooms is returning to television screens in 2020.
The romantic comedy series that captured the hearts of viewers will continue to tell the tale of five unlikely allies in life and everyone’s favourite housemates Liz (Kat Stewart), Ben (Stephen Peacocke), Heather (Doris Younane), Ainsley (Katie Robertson) and Harry (Roy Joseph).
Having lost their first communal home at auction, this surrogate family is once again looking to leap into the property market, believing they have been tested and prevailed as a motley collective.
But there are still so many questions they’re yet to face, or come close to answering. What happens if they can’t find a house that matches their needs? What happens if one of them meets their soulmate in an external person? Will the house cope with a new dynamic? What happens if there’s a break-up…? And is this quintet remotely qualified to have a baby in their midst?
Channel 10, Head Of Drama, Rick Maier said: “I’m happy to say this was an emphatic YES from everyone involved. We love this show, the key creatives and especially this exceptional cast.”
Hoodlum Executive Producers, Nathan Mayfield and Tracey Robertson said: “We have been overwhelmed by the love and support this show has received both here in Australia and around the world. It’s a simple validation of great writing, great creatives and a stellar cast that we get to bring Five Bedrooms back for Season 2!”
Screen Australia’s Head of Content, Sally Caplan said: “It’s always a special moment when audiences connect with one character, let alone five of them as we saw with Five Bedrooms season one. We’re thrilled to support the second season of this captivating, funny and heart-felt series.”
Five Bedrooms stars a superb ensemble cast including Kat Stewart, Stephen Peacocke, Doris Younane, Katie Robertson, Roy Joseph and Hugh Sheridan.
