Stan resurrects some intriguing Aussie shows we bet you missed first time

Serangoon Road, Mystery Road, Wake in Fright and High Ground were all challenging titles, and some paid the price. Watch and decide for yourself.

We have a soft spot for streaming service Stan because Australian shows are built into its core business plan. Local shows are foundations, not a lick of paint at inspection time, and that’s evident in some of the new offerings it has in the month ahead.

This July, Stan is releasing season 2 of Mystery Road, directed by Warwick Thornton, written by Steven McGregor, headlined by Aaron Pedersen and Jada Alberts, and produced by David Jowsey and Greer Simpkin.
