Offspring to be released on Tenplay before TV airing

Great news for fans of Offspring with viewers able to see the first episode before it screens on TV

On Tuesday, May 6, the first episode of the highly anticipated new season will be made available exclusively to tenplay members for a limited time only.

The episode will no longer be available to view after 48 hours, or after 20,000 views.

Offspring fans will also be able to catch up with season 4 of the drama via tenplay, with the full series made available on Wednesday, May 7.

Season 4 will be available for one week, ahead of the season 5 premiere on TEN on Wednesday, May 14, at 8.30pm.

The ABC conducted a similar experiment by allowing fans of Jonah From Tonga to binge watch the series on iView last weekend before it’s TV premiere.

Starring double 2014 TV Week Silver Logie winner Asher Keddie, season 5 will focus on the next chapter of Nina Proudman’s life as a single mother.

Viewers will find out why Asher describes the new season of Offspring as “the best we’ve ever done”.

Network Ten Head of Drama, Rick Maier, said: “Last year left us asking how could Nina ever recover from losing Patrick. Six months later, and the answers come in surprising ways as the Proudmans rally – as only they know how.

“This year Offspring manages to achieve the seemingly impossible: if television can ever make us question the big stuff while remaining life-affirming, crazy and joyful, then this is the series to do it. Baby steps Nina, baby steps.”
