The Stan Original Series ‘Bump’ is back, by popular demand, for a second season after an extremely successful first season.

    Bump, created by Aussie Claudia Karvan, is about a 16 year old girl named Oly who has an unexpected baby girl. It follows the ups and downs of raising a child as a teenager.

    Season 1 explores how much your life can change, in the second season it is about Oly and the baby J’s father Santi, having to making some big decisions as they juggle a work-life balance that also includes high school while planning for their own future. It’s a nice progression of the story in this new coming of age comedy-drama series.

    Actors Nathalie Morris and Carlos Sanson Jr are simply brilliant in this really capturing the life as young parents. I’m especially looking forward to see where their careers progress after this.

    There are only a few issues I see in this second season; the story doesn’t quite progress, there are no real ups and downs with resolutions that stand out. Nevertheless, I’m still wanting to see what happens next assuming there is going to be a third season.

    There is no doubt that this is a brilliant series, full of Aussies, full of culture; a wonderful production that we can proudly call Australian. I see many comparisons to the iconic Australian film and later TV series Puberty Blues.

    To summarise, I would say that Bump 2 is a real easy binge that can be watched by teenagers and adults alike.
