Bump: new season to premiere on Boxing Day on Stan

Season 4 of the Australian comedy-drama takes place two years after the events of Season 3, with sparks of joy amid the chaos.

Stan has released the trailer and premiere date for the new season of Bump, the Australian comedy-drama series created by Claudia Karvan and Kelsey Munro.

According to Stan: ‘In Bump Season 4 we’ve jumped forward again – this time by two years. Oly’s the brand new breadwinner; Santi’s the unhappy stay-at-home dad, and the endless interventions from their big mess of a family are going to make or break them.

‘Oly (Nathalie Morris) and Santi (Carlos Sanson Jr) are back together, having finally stabilised their small family unit with their challenging seven-year-old Jacinda (Ava Cannon). Angie (Claudia Karvan) has moved out of the Chalmers-Davis house into a protest camp, focusing on environmental activism and the climate crisis in part as a useful distraction from her recent heartbreak.

‘Dom (Angus Sampson) is happily re-living his share-house years with his best mate Tim, while Reema (Safia Arain) and Vince (Ioane Sa’ula) begin to reckon with the fact that their relationship may not have a viable future. A somewhat lost Bowie (Christian Byers) is struggling through his Saturn return and big questions about the direction his life should take. 

‘As the chaos of life shows no signs of settling down, our characters look for ways to find joy in life’s many curveballs.’

Season 4 of Bump premieres on Stan on Boxing Day.
