Home and Away is currently on a break over the Christmas period, but new trailers tease a whole lot of action coming to the Bay in 2020 – from a shock disappearance to a brand new family.
A preview hot off the press in Australia has revealed the introduction of a brand new family, the Paratas. The trailer shows the newcomers on the beach, with one of them saying ‘Wherever we go, we’re only one conversation away from having our past discovered.’
We already know about the explosive season finale, which shows Northern Districts hospital caught up in a terrifying siege with at least one life lost – and Back to the Bay has revealed that our first glimpse of the Peratas will be when one of the new family members get caught up in the drama.
New Zealand actor, Rob Kipa-Williams, will be playing Ari – short for Ariki Wiremu Parata. Taking to Instagram, he said: ‘My name is Ariki Wiremu Parata (Ari) I was born in New Zealand and moved to Australia 12 years ago.
‘I’ve had a few challenges and those challenges brought me to Summer Bay.. I love my whanau (family), I’ll do anything for them, but never cross me.
‘I didn’t know the guy who died but my heart goes out to the family.. As for me I guess you’ll find out if I stay in the bay or if I go when @homeandaway returns in 2020.’
