Nine quietly returns House Husbands

Nine has announced the return date for House Husbands as this Monday.

Lewis (Gary Sweet), Justin (Firass Dirani), Mark (Rhys Muldoon) and Kane (Gyton Grantley) return to our screens along with Gemma (Julia Morris), Abi (Natalie Saleeba) and Alex (Darren McMullen) in another hilarious and heartfelt series.

The multi-talented Justine Clarke joins the cast playing Eve, the hot-headed tuckshop lady, a rival to Kane’s catering business. Eve sets her sights on something far more personal than just Kane’s customers, placing her at the centre of the House Husband family. Indiana Evans plays Tash, a single mother new to Melbourne who ignites a tumultuous love triangle.

Other new cast members include Akos Armont as the charming and ambitious Dr Saxon, Jane Kennedy who plays Belinda, the officious and cut throat director of the hospital and the return of Jane Allsop as Rachel, Mark’s (Rhys Muldoon) terrifying boss. Rodney (Nicholas Coghlan) is also back along with Frankie (Danielle Horvat), following her intimate encounter with Justin in season three.

Nine’s co-Heads of Drama, Jo Rooney and Andy Ryan, said today: “Everyone with a family can relate to the challenges faced by our House Husbands and their partners. With the finest ensemble cast on Australian television, series four will deliver more life-changing, gut-wrenching and laugh-out-loud surprises than ever before.”

Playmaker’s Executive Producer, David Maher, said: “House Husbands proves Australians are hungry for local drama that delivers the big issues of domestic life with humour and heart. It’s a privilege to be reuniting with the House Husbands gang for a fourth series.”

The new series comprises 10 episodes, with the first a special ninety-minute extended episode.

 House Husbands returns 8:40 pm Monday on Nine
