A Place to Call Home
SEASON 5 premieres Sunday October 8, 7.30pm EDT only on showcase. Catch up on showcase +2 at 9:30pm EDT.
Season 5 will jump to 1958, where four years have passed since we left Sarah (Marta Dusseldorp) and the Bligh family. Those years have seen ever-increasing changes in Australian society. The world of wealth and privilege is being eroded, moral values are fraying and a new young generation is rising, full of disaffection with the world of their elders. To them the War is a matter of the dead past, bringing conflict with those who suffered its pain and deprivation. Economic change and the devious actions of unseen enemies threaten Ash Park and, in the midst of the turmoil, love becomes the only sure place anyone can call home.
Not only a ratings hit at home, A Place To Call Home has won international fans and critics with The Wall Street Journal listing it in its Best Television of 2015 and repeatedly praising it: “A Place to Call Home is a captivating, deeply romantic drama of immense intelligence distinguished by a uniformly superb cast” and “an impossibly addictive series set in early-1950s Australia has developed an impassioned following, with its story of the upper class Bligh family, and for good reason. It is period soap opera powered by hefty themes like class, money, religion and the long shadow of World War II, not to mention the stellar cast.”
