filming is now underway on season 7

It was announced last year that the hit show would return in 2017 and it’s just be confirmed on Facebook that filming has started!

“Offspring is a dream job, it’s so great to be back,” Kat Stewart said. “[It’s] the opportunity to straddle drama and comedy, to work with a great team, to celebrate family and dysfunction, and to spend time with characters who are surprising, flawed and challenging.”

“It’s always the best fun leaping into a new Offspring series, always exciting and fantastic to continue the journey,” Asher Keddie added.

Season seven picks up just weeks after the season six finale. Nina is navigating the complexities of a new relationship with Harry (Alexander England) and the emotional needs of three-year-old Zoe (Isabella Monaghan); managing the demands of a hospital as Acting Head of Obstetrics while waiting for Clegg (Lachy Hulme) and Cherie (Deborah Mailman) to return from the outback; and, as always, trying to keep her cool amidst the chaos of the wider Proudman clan.

And chaotic it is: while Billie tries to focus on Brody (Shannon Berry) and her newborn, the difficulty of her long-distance marriage becomes increasingly harder to ignore. Jimmy (Rick Davies) and Zara’s (Jane Harber) relationship is under pressure, things are getting serious for Will (TJ Power) and Kerry (Ash Ricardo), and family matriarch Geraldine (Linda Cropper) has some surprises of her own.


Head of Drama Rick Maier said, “This may be the toughest year yet for Nina, Billie and Jimmy (Rick Davies), with every relationship under pressure” Maier teased, “but the Proudmans are a sturdy bunch and watching them sort out the chaos is all part of the fun. The scripts are fantastic, the cast is ready and we’re all looking forward to another compelling season of our favourite show.”

Alexander England is returning as Harry Crewe, along with Richard Davies, Linda Cropper, Shannon Berry and Isabella Monaghan.

“Expect all the excitement and confusion of Nina exploring new love with Harry; the chaos and drama of Billie making unexpected life decisions; and the inevitable joy and shenanigans that come from being part of the Proudman clan. The gang is in fine form and this season promises to see loyal fans very happy,” says Producer Imogen Banks.

The show will likely be back on screen in June, and in the meantime, stay here for updates!
