Actor Jonathan LaPaglia will not appear in Season 4 of Love Child.
Last October the actor who played Dr Patrick McNaughton in three seasons told TV Tonight “I haven’t heard any more about it. I don’t know what Channel Nine’s up to. I’m not sure how it rated last season and I haven’t heard anything more.
“Normally I would have heard by now. So who knows?”
But Nine recently confirmed returning cast members: Jessica Marais, Mandy McElhinney, Miranda Tapsell, Sophie Hensser, Andy Ryan and Harriet Dyer.
The good news for LaPaglia is he is returning to TEN as host of Australian Survivor.
Also absent from Nine’s list is Matthew Le Nevez, who joined for Seasons 2 and 3.
It’s now 1972, the year of Gough Whitlam’s election, free education and immigration. With new faces, a cover-up and a shocking death, the men and women of Love Child will face their greatest challenges yet.
Love Child is produced by Playmaker Media and returning later this year.
