Bump Makes Its US Debut on The CW Tonight!

Bump is making it’s network debut on The CW TONIGHT (August 11)!

The half hour comedy/drama series is originally from Australia and premiered at the start of 2021 on Stan.

The series centers on Olympia (‘Oly’) Chalmers-Davis (Nathalie Morris), an overachieving 17-year-old student who knows exactly where she’s going. Her boyfriend, doctor’s son Lachie (Peter Thurnwald), ticks all the right boxes; she and her best friend, Reema (Safia Arain), share an ambitious 10-year plan: top grades, international relations at a university, work for the UN, save the world.

Oly’s mother Angie (Claudia Karvan) is the head of English at her inner city high school; and her father Dom (Angus Sampson) is a recently unemployed executive who’s been spending nights on his moored boat. Angie and Dom are lost in their own mid-life reckoning.

At school, Oly collapses in agony. She’s sped to hospital in an ambulance, accompanied by Angie, and they are both stunned – horrified! – to discover that Oly is in labor. Blindsided, in deep shock, Oly rejects the baby entirely. If she doesn’t acknowledge the baby, then she doesn’t have to acknowledge how her life has irrevocably changed, or that the baby’s father is not her boyfriend; it’s Santiago “Santi” Hernandez (Carlos Sanson, Jr), the laid-back son of Angie’s major work crush: Chilean soccer coach Matias (Ricardo Scheihing-Vasquez).

The Hernandez and Chalmers families clash over differing expectations of family obligations and with Angie and Dom on the brink of separation already, and Matias and his wife Rosa (Paula Garcia) battling their own messy household dynamic, the arrival of the baby sets off each family in different ways.

As the series develops, so does our understanding of what drew Oly and Santi together in the first place, and how it could bring them closer now – if they can navigate this sudden onset of adulthood, and if their families don’t get in the way.

Bump premieres TONIGHT (August 11) with back-to-back episodes, starting at 8pm ET/PT on The CW.
