Home and Away teases dramatic new stories as show takes short break in Australia
Australian viewers really are without a soap fix this week, as not only has Neighbours finished for good, but Home and Away is off screens too.
Thankfully for Summer Bay fans, the break for Home and Away is a short one, and the show will return to Australian screens next Monday (August 8) – and it looks like it will be bringing some serious drama with it when it returns.
A new trailer released on the official Instagram page for the soap teases what’s coming up when the show returns on August 8, and ominously teases that “a friend will fall”.
And not only that, but we are also told that promises will be broken, lines will be crossed, and mistakes will be made – we did say it was bringing the drama.
When the show aired its last episode before its mini-break, things looked dicey for both Tane and Rose when they made it their mission to bring down Tex and his biker gang.
Tex and his gang are out for revenge after a botched armed robbery from years ago left them feeling like they were owed money from Ari.
Tane has been laundering money through Summer Bay Fit in an attempt to get them off of everybody’s backs – and recent scenes saw him confide in Rose about what has been happening.
But while viewers hoped they would be able to bring Tex down, the sound of a gunshot in the promo indicates that their plan may be doomed to fail…
The upcoming break for Home and Away down under, which is due to the airing of the Commonwealth Games, does mean that Channel 5 will close the gap a little as it will not pause transmission – so UK fans will not have to wait quite as long to see what the latest drama is in Summer Bay.
Home and Away airs weekdays at 1.45pm on Channel 5 and 6pm on 5STAR. First-look screenings air at 6.30pm on 5STAR and the show also streams on My5.
