10 will screen the second season of Five Bedrooms very soon.
This surrogate family are more fiercely loving and functional than your average biological clan. The arrangement that began as a risky short-term solution is now an empirical success, a genuine long-term prospect, and maybe even a preferable version of family and life?
There’s the fallen socialite, Liz (Kat Stewart), laconic tradie, Ben (Stephen Peacocke), firecracker middle-aged mum, Heather (Doris Younane), cautious doctor, Harry (Roy Joseph) and tragic romantic, Ainsley (Katie Robertson).
This group of five misfits first found each other at an all-too-familiar setting, the dreaded singles’ table at a wedding, where liquid courage gave them the ballsy bravado to pitch in and buy a house together. A communal approach to Australia’s property crisis, they split the impossible cost of homeownership five ways.
Season two of Five Bedrooms dives hard into themes that resonate globally. There’s a new home, a DIY renovation, a DIY renovation injury, two pregnancies, an ex-husband, a workplace bullying complaint, an unexpected tragedy, love found and love lost.
