Stan, Australia’s unrivalled home of original productions, today released the trailer for the Stan Original Series Year Of, an original drama about friendship and family in the wake of a shocking event,
From the award-winning makers of Offspring and the Stan Original Series Romper Stomper, the multi-generational drama Year Of is a brand new 10-episode spin-off of the critically acclaimed comedy drama, the Stan Original series Bump. Set at the same Sydney harbour-front school, Jubilee High, the story centres on a disparate group of inner-city teens – and the adults around them – as they navigate the senior years of high school.
At this threshold between childhood and adulthood, life is at its most intense. Identity, love, sexuality, finding a place – every feeling is hyper-real and full of consequence. This is a show where humour and energy rule, even when bad stuff happens, so when our characters face a shocking crisis, their lives are only deepened by the experience.
Old friendships break and make way for new, more surprising ones, and each member of the group is forced to reassess what matters most to them, and who they want to become. Bold, quirky, raw and brave, Year Of fearlessly delves into the dark underbelly of the supposed best years of your life.
The series stars Danielle Cormack (Wentworth Prison, Rake, Underbelly), Matt Nable (Stan Original Film Transfusion), Caroline Brazier (Rake, Packed to the Rafters), Sam Johnson (Stan Original Series Eden, Molly) and Christian Byers (Stan Original Series Bump), along with exciting newcomers Sam Alston (Thor: Love and Thunder, RFDS), Tharanya Tharan (More Than This), Joshua Hewson, Samuel El Rahi (Flow, Progenitor Cryptocides), Isabella Graiche, Ira Dawson, Nicholas Cradock (Hardball), and Sophia Wright-Mendelsohn (Deadloch).
