Bump is back,” she began. “We’re going to do series five. Can’t wait to share it with you, really thrilled to be doing it.”

Meanwhile, the video’s caption read: “Bump’s back, baby! The much-loved Stan Original Series will be back for season 5 with five times the fun, five times the drama, and five times the heart.”

Unfortunately, Stan has not confirmed any explicit details regarding the upcoming Bump season. In fact, nothing regarding cast, premiere date or storyline have been confirmed.

It is safe to presume that protagonists Oly, played by Nathalie Morris, and Santiago ‘Santi’ Hernandez, played by Carlos Sanson Jr. will be returning to reprise their roles.

Additionally, co-creator Claudia will most likely return to star as Angie Davis. However, her co-creator Kelsey Munro doesn’t portray a character.

Season four of the Stan series was arguably one of the biggest yet. Beginning with a two-year time jump, Santi was the unhappy stay-at-home dad while Oly was the ‘breadwinner’, and little Jacinda was starting primary school.

However, the idea of a fourth season was completely unexpected to Claudia.

“We actually didn’t expect a fourth season,” Claudia told TV WEEK at the time. “We thought that was it. Then when Stan ordered a fourth, Kelsey [Munro] and I put our heads together and settled on an environmental lens to see the world through. Series one, two and three was very much and very consciously a feminist lens.”

Despite the family fun core of the series, Bump discusses “solid and subversive storylines” Claudia told Mamamia.

“Even in the first season you see this high school girl being presented with her new baby and she says ‘get that thing away from me’. That’s a hard-hitting storyline but one we do wrap up in a lot of goodness, love, warmth, and loyalty. We’ve made it a bit like an urban fantasy.
