Australian streaming service Stan has announced the production of the fifth season of the Stan Original Series Bump. Currently filming in Sydney, this new season will mark the final chapter of the popular comedy-drama.

Season five promises glimpses into the future. The narrative will be oscillating between past and present, as the Chalmers-Davis family continues to confront life’s relentless challenges, including Angie’s (Claudia Karvan) diagnosis, while also finding moments of joy with Oly’s (Nathalie Morris) second pregnancy.

Carlos Sanson Jr. (Ladies in Black) and Ava Cannon are returning, alongside the full Chalmers-Davis clan. Among the cast returning for this concluding season: Angus Sampson (The Lincoln Lawyer, Furiosa: A Mad Max Saga), Christian Byers (Stan Original Series Year Of and Exposure), Ioane Sa’ula (The Fall Guy), Safia Arain (House of Gods), Paula Garcia (Thirteen Lives), Claudia de Giusti, Steph Tisdell (Class of 07, Total Control), Dylan Alcott (Bump S3), Anita Hegh (Total Control, Uptight), Ryan Johnson (The Claremont Murders), Matilda Ridgway (Disclosure), Oscar Leal (Stan Original Series Black Snow), Henrietta Amevor (Bump S2, S3, S4), Miguel Andrade (Bump S1-S4), and Alex Sanson.

Co-created by Kelsey Munro and Claudia Karvan, this season brings back the Bump writing team, including Nick Coyle (Wellmania), Timothy Lee (Mystery Road), and Shanti Gudgeon (Stan Original Series Wolf Creek). Nathalie Morris will also debut as a writer for this season.

Directing the series are Margie Beattie (Bump S3, Plum), Rebecca O’Brien (Bump S3 & S4, The Unlisted), and Ismail Khan (Bump S3, Barrumbi Kids). Stan Executive Producers are Cailah Scobie and Donna Chang.

Bump is produced with the assistance of Screen NSW, with international sales managed by ITV Studios.
