Filming on Season 4 of A Place to Call Home begins today.
As previously revealed by TV Tonight, creator Bevan Lee returns to the series as writer after his sabbatical during Season 3.
Season 4 cast includes Marta Dusseldorp (Sarah Nordmann), Noni Hazlehurst (Elizabeth Bligh), Brett Climo (George Bligh), David Berry (James Bligh), Abby Earl (Anna Poletti), Arianwen Parkes-Lockwood (Olivia Bligh), Craig Hall (Dr Jack Duncan) Frankie J Holden (Roy Briggs), Aldo Mignone (Gino Poletti), Sara Wiseman (Carolyn Bligh), Jenni Baird (Regina Bligh) and Deborah Kennedy (Doris Collins). Returning guest cast include Brenna Harding (Rose O’Connell), Tim Draxl ( Dr Henry Fox), Mark Lee (Sir Richard Bennett) and Rick Donald ( Lloyd Ellis Parker).
Season four will focus on the relationships between the characters as affected by two contrasting social issues. The first is the conservative wave of fear generated by the “Reds Under the Beds” scare surrounding The Petrov Affair. The second, the wave of liberal change that opened up new social and moral choices.
The S3 premiere stands as Subscription TV’s 7th highest rating episode of all-time, now sold to
the United Kingdom, Israel, The Netherlands and the U.S.A.
