60 years of Australian TV
For the return of Offspring, we will share filming locations around, Fitzroy and Collingwood. Nina’s 2nd house is filmed on location at 4 Emma St, Collingwood.
Offspring is a multi-award winning Australian television drama/comedy series which premiered on Network Ten on 15 August 2010. Offspring is centred on 30-something obstetrician Nina Proudman and her family and friends, as they navigate the chaos of modern life. It is filmed in Melbourne’s inner north. The show mixes conventional narrative drama and comedy with flashbacks, graphic animation and fantasy sequences. Debra Oswald wrote the series with John Edwards and Imogen Banks producing with Southern Star Entertainment. Offspring was originally conceived as a two-hour telemovie for Ten, but was spun off into a 13 episodes series after television executives were impressed by the quality of the telemovie. The second season began on 16 May 2011, with a double episode premiere. Offspring was renewed for its fourth and fifth seasons on 12 July 2012. On 3 October 2014, John Edwards confirmed that Offspring would not return for a sixth series in 2015, due to Ten’s cost-cutting measures in its production division. On 30 August 2015, the Herald Sun reported that a sixth season of Offspring would be made – returning after a two-year hiatus. On 20 September 2015, Ten confirmed that Offspring would return for a sixth season in 2016. Production for the series will begin on 25 April 2016 and will run through to June 2016. Most of the cast will be back, although it has been reported that John Waters, who plays Darcy Proudman, is one exception, at least during early production. Two new cast members are reported to be Underbelly: Razor cast-member T. J. Power as lawyer Will Bowen and Love My Way star Dan Wyllie as Dr Angus Freeman.
