Fans of Bondi Rescue are about to get rewarded with fresh episodes from next week.
This summer has seen an unprecedented number of tragic drownings across New South Wales and with as many as 40,000 beachgoers flocking to Bondi Beach each day, the lifeguards have their work cut out for them.
In the 12th season of the six-time TV Week Logie Award-winning series, the boys and girl in blue throw four fresh faces into the deep end: 28-year-old PE teacher, Juliana; 22-year-old Tassie boy Joel; 21-year-old carpenter Tommy; and 24-year-old swimming champion Wally.
As the new recruits navigate the massive crowds and dangerous surf conditions of Australia’s most popular beach, will they sink or swim?
Putting the newcomers through their paces is head lifeguard Bruce “Hoppo” Hopkins. A fixture on Bondi Beach, this season marks Hoppo’s 25th year of keeping the beaches safe.
As Hoppo and his team of larrikin lifeguards take on bag thieves, street hoodlums, heatwaves, drownings, sharks, resuscitations, cuts, broken bones and thousands of rescues, this summer may just prove to be their biggest yet.
Bondi Rescue. Returns Sunday, 29 January At 6.30pm on Ten.
