the highly anticipated sixth season of the much-loved, iconic and ground-breaking local drama series Offspring has started production in Melbourne.
Returning for another round of loveable Proudman family chaos, Asher Keddie and Kat Stewart are reprising their roles as sisters Nina and Billie Proudman. Other cast members joining them include Richard Davies, Lachy Hulme, Patrick Brammall, Linda Cropper, Deborah Mailman, Alicia Gardiner, Jane Harber, Eddie Perfect and Lawrence Leung.
Newcomer TJ Power joins the cast this season in the role of lawyer Will Bowen. TJ’s previous film and television credits include Underbelly: Razor, Molly, The Sapphires and Eat, Pray, Love.
Dan Wyllie guest stars as Dr. Angus Freeman, St Francis’ Director of Clinical Education. Dan is well-known to Australian audiences for his TV Week Logie Award-winning role on Love My Way, as well as memorable roles in Underbelly, Tangle, The Beautiful Lie and Puberty Blues
Season six of Offspring picks up 18 months on, with baby Zoe now two-and-a-half years old. With the Proudman family rocked by a heart-breaking event, Nina’s story and her unpredictable, messy and often hilarious life continues.
Network Ten Head of Drama, Rick Maier, said: “Everyone at Ten is excited to have our favourite dysfunctional family back on our screens, as Nina, the Proudmans and the gang at St. Francis return. We’ll be breaking out the chocolate and the tissues for a season of high romance, low comedy and plenty of sexy time. Natural order has been restored: Offspring is back.”
Producer, Endemol Shine Banks, Imogen Banks, said: “Here we go again! We love being back in our old, favourite Fitzroy haunts, making a brand new season of Offspring. It’s a bit like a fun school reunion.”
Offspring will return to Ten later this year.
