Bump: Season 2 (AU)

This critically-acclaimed, award-winning, viewer-favorite half-hour drama, which revolves around Sydney teenager and new mom Olympia “Oly” Chalmers-Davis (Nathalie Morris, One Lane Bridge, Almost Paradise), returns to the States with its second season.

In Season 1, ambitious and high-achieving student Oly had the surprise of her life when, after collapsing in pain at school, she went into labor and had a baby. Complications abounded as a result — impacting Oly’s ten-year plan of getting top grades, studying international relations at uni, working for the UN, and saving the world; her relationship with her boyfriend Lachie (Peter Thurnwald, King Kong: Skull Island); her relationship with the baby’s daddy, the sensitive stoner Santiago “Santi” Hernandez (Carlos Sanson, Jr., Mr. Inbetween, Legacies); and both Oly’s and Santi’s families.

In Season 2, as Oly and Santi come to grips with their new realities as young parents, the two get to know each other better, look to the future, and discover just how much family can mess you up…

And how much family members can mess themselves and each other up, too, like Oly’s now-separated parents, Angie (Claudia Karvan, Love My Way, The Secret Life Of Us) and Dom (Angus Sampson, Fargo, Party Tricks), and Santi’s father and stepmother, Matias (Ricardo Scheihing Vasquez) and Rosa (Paula Garcia, Little White Lies).

Costars include Safia Arain (Amazing Grace, Brace), Ioane Saula (The Heart Guy), and Paula Garcia (The Twelve), amongst others.

Bump: Season 2 premieres in the US on Monday, July 31, at 9:30 PM ET, on The CW.
