Five Bedrooms

SATURDAY, 1 JANUARY

EXCLUSIVE NEW SEASON PREMIERE / ALL EPISODES

Our Five Bedrooms surrogate family are more fiercely loving and functional than your average biological clan.

The arrangement that began as a risky short-term solution, is now an empirical success, a genuine long-term prospect, and maybe even a preferable version of family and life?

In season three, Evie’s nursery has been turned into a functioning bed and breakfast that is finally ready for its debut, there’s a break-up for the house to navigate, an opportunity to become a parent, and finally, the first Five Bedrooms wedding.

Each of these events strike at the core question of the life-affirming series – what’s the best way to live a life, and who are the best people to live that life with?
