Comedy drama House Husbands has commenced filming its fourth season in Melbourne and will air on the Nine Network later this year.

With the commercial TV networks struggling to bring in the ratings for drama content in 2015, lets hope the Nine Network can find a consistent 8:30pm timeslot for House Husbands.

Lewis (Gary Sweet), Justin (Firass Dirani), Mark (Rhys Muldoon), and Kane (Gyton Grantley) are all back with their loved ones - Gemma (Julia Morris), Abi (Natalie Saleeba), and Alex (Darren McMullen) – along with the indomitable Miss Looby (Louise Siversen).

Indiana Evans is joining the cast to play Tash, a single mother new to Melbourne, who ignites a tumultuous love triangle, whilst the multi-talented Justine Clarke, will play Eve, the hot-headed tuckshop lady who proves a rival to Kane’s catering business.

Other new cast members include Akos Armont as the charming and ambitious Dr Saxon,whose presence creates tension within the hospital, and Jane Kennedy best known for her comedy work with Working Dog on programs such as Frontline and The Late Show will portray Belinda, the resident Director of Medical Services. 

Mark’s (Rhys Muldoon) controlling boss Rachel, played by Jane Allsop in season one, will be making a fiery comeback. Also returning from season one to cause trouble is Rodney, (Nicholas Coghlan). And back on the scene, following her intimate encounter with Justin in season three is Frankie (Danielle Horvat).

The new series comprises 10 episodes, with the first one a special extended episode.

Nine’s co-Heads of Drama, Jo Rooney and Andy Ryan, said: “Everyone with a family can relate to the challenges faced by our House Husbands and their partners. With the finest ensemble cast on Australian television, series four will deliver more life-changing, gut-wrenching and laugh-out-loud surprises than ever before.

House Husbands has struck a chord with viewers at home and around the world, with a swag of Logie Award nominations, major overseas sales and remakes planned for France and Italy.”

Playmaker’s Executive Producer, David Maher, said: “House Husbands proves Australians are hungry for local drama that delivers the big issues of domestic life with humour and heart.  It’s a privilege to be reuniting with the House Husbands gang for a 4th series.”
