Stan renews ‘Bump’ for season 2 after record-breaking streaming numbers

Filming for season 2 will kick off later this year

Stan has renewed teen pregnancy dramedy Bump for a second season, after it reportedly broke viewing records for the streaming platform.

The 10-part series went live on New Years Day this year, centring on the travails of Nathalie Morris as Oly, a prodigious teenage girl in Sydney that has a surprise child. Created and co-written by Kelly Munro, the show also stars co-producer Claudia Karvan and Angus Sampson as Oly’s mother and father respectively.

The first season’s soundtrack features plenty of contemporary Australian indie, including Sweet Whirl‘s ‘Weirdo’ and ‘Something I Do’, Tired Lion‘s ‘Waterbed’ and more.

Development of Bump‘s second season is underway, with filming set to commence later this year. A new cast is yet to be announced.

Stan has not published how many views constituted Bump‘s record-breaking streams. In a press release, Karvan said the program was “the show we needed now – a show that is authentic, full of heart and humour and is testament to our resilience”.

“We all are champing at the bit to get back into the story room and bring these characters to life again. Stan have been the ultimate collaborators and we’re looking forward to working together again.”
