With North Shore wrapping up tonight 10 has locked in it’s next Australian drama Riptide.
Riptide traces the life of newlywed single mum Alison (Jo Joyner) who marries the older and wealthier Sean (Peter O’Brien) and moves into a gorgeous home by the ocean, along with her teenage daughter Hannah (Asher Yasbincek). But there’s tension, too. Sean’s adult son, Ethan (Benny Turland), is against the marriage.
Despite the obstacles, the happy couple are determined to navigate a future together, until tragedy strikes. Alison’s life is plunged into despair when her husband vanishes after a morning
surf. Did he get caught in a dangerous riptide – or is there more to his disappearance than meets the eye?
