Stan’s Aussie smash-hit series, Bump, captivated audiences when it premiered last summer, and now, we’re being treated to a much-anticipated second season following the lives of Oly and Santi, who are now trying to juggle parenting as part of their high school life.

Back in early 2021, Bump broke Stan’s record for the biggest ever premiere, and continued to draw in fans as the country entered more lockdowns throughout the year.

Starring Nathalie Morris as Oly, and ultimate TV-mum Claudia Karvan (hello, Puberty Blues), the show was praised widely for its diverse cast, and it’s bypassing of moralising on teen sex and pregnancy.

A review from Meg Watson called it “a welcome escape from our own 2020 horror stories and a reminder of what unexpected joys can arise after everything goes horribly wrong”.

So, it’s no surprise that the show was renewed, and we’re super excited for the new episodes to come. Here’s what we can expect:

What is season two of Bump about?

Oly and Santi are now proud parents to baby Jacinda, often referred to as Baby J, but they have a lot to manage between parenting and continuing to attend high school together.

As teenagers, ‘the future’ looms near, and they seem to be making their best attempts to prepare.

Meanwhile, Oly’s parents, Angie and Dom, played respectively by Claudia Karvan and Angus Sampson, are handling the fallout from their separation as they handle new relationships and dramas apart.

Who can we expect to see?

Obviously, Nathalie Morris and Carlos Sanson Jr will be returning as Oly and Santi, and Claudia Karvan and Angus Sampson will be back, too. We can also expect Santi’s family to return, including Paula Garcia as his mother, Rosa, Ricardo Scheihing Vasquez as Matias, and Claudia de Giusti as Bernadite.

“What’s nice is you get to see a lot of the other characters, a little bit more into their lives” Carlos said at the premiere of the season.

“Last season was about two teenagers that have a baby, but now it’s like everyone’s got a story,” added Ioane Saula, who plays Vince Ingram.

The cast is also growing, with TikTok creator and all-round star Millie Ford joining as a teacher, after videos she created of herself impersonating a teacher went viral during lockdown.

So, cancel your plans and embrace the Christmas hangover with some delightful, heartwarming, Aussie TV.
