Stan Australia has announced that production on the fourth season of Bump has begun in Sydney.
Logie and AACTA-nominated Stan Original series Bump aren’t slowing down the story of characters Oly (Nathalie Morris), and Santi (Carlos Sanson Jr) along with their seven-year-old daughter, Jacinda, along with the rest of their family and friends. The fourth season will once again do a time-jump following the third season, this time jumping ahead two years in time.
Stan provided a synopsis of the coming season:
“Now finding their feet in the world as full-grown adults, Oly (Nathalie Morris) and Santi (Carlos Sanson Jr) are trying to stabilise their small family unit with their challenging seven-year-old Jacinda. Vince (Ioane Sa’ula), Talia (Henrietta Amevor) and Ariel (Matilda Ridgway) have found their own stride with toddler Malik too, although the involvement of Reema (Safia Arain) as sort-of-half-step-mum complicates things a little – especially since she has no interest in having kids herself.
Oly’s first proper job finds her on a steep learning curve with her difficult boss Shauna who expects Oly to be available 24/7, while Santi struggles to redefine his masculinity as Jacinda’s primary carer, and no longer the primary breadwinner. At the same time, Dom is blissfully reliving his share-house years, while Reema and Vince reckon with the notion that their relationship may not have a viable future. Angie (Claudia Karvan) clings to the climate crisis as a distraction from her recent heartbreak, putting her at loggerheads once more with Rosa (Paula Garcia), whose growing restaurant empire seems far from sustainable. As the chaos of life shows no signs of settling down, our characters are forced to confront the question: how do you find hope and joy in the midst of an existential crisis?”
Alongside the returning regular cast, new regulars joining the fourth season are Steph Tisdell (Class of 07, Total Control) and Dylan Alcott AO, Australian tennis player, Australian of the Year 2022 and Paralympian.
There’s currently no release date for the fourth season of Bump; however, previous seasons have been released in January.
