The cast of 'Five Bedrooms'.

Paramount+ has extended the lease for Hoodlum Entertainment’s Five Bedrooms, commissioning a fourth season of the housemate drama.

Filming will commence in October on the new episodes, which pick up just weeks after the season three finale.

Main characters Liz (Kat Stewart), Ben (Stephen Peacocke), Heather (Doris Younane), Ainsley (Katie Robertson), Harry (Roy Joseph), and Simmo (Johnny Carr) return in the midst of their own unique crises, with each striking at the core question of the series: what’s the best way to live a life, and who are the best people to live that life with?

The group will be forced to navigate a controversial romantic entanglement, plus an unexpected diagnosis.

Five Bedrooms is created and written by Michael Lucas and Christine Bartlett, who also serve as producers alongside Hoodlum EPs Nathan Mayfield and Tracey Robertson.

Set in Melbourne, the series is made with support from Film Victoria, and assistance from Screen Australia.

Mayfield told IF the team was excited to be back working on new episodes.

“We’re thrilled Five Bedrooms has been commissioned for a fourth season and have hit the ground running in the writing room,” he said.

The first season of Five Bedrooms was commissioned by Network 10, but parent Viacom CBS+ shifted the second iteration to Paramount+.

  1. All three series’ have made me laugh and cry. Each of the characters play a special part. I finished the final episode of the third series and am really hoping that series four is on screen soon. It touches every emotion. I just love it.

  2. Fab three series but needs marketed and brought to a much greater audience esp in the UK/ Ireland. you really feel you know the characters.

  3. Absolutely brilliant series, hooked after series 1,unknown actors in UK, which makes it more appealing. The chemistry between all the main characters is brilliant. Looking forward to Series 4. I hope it gets a peak evening slot in UK as 2.15 pm is too early for most!
