Season four is going down a treat with viewers all over the globe!

It's been a series of ups and downs ahead of the release of the new episodes as, earlier this year, filming for season five was shut down due to the spread of Omicron.

However, shooting is due to resume in Vancouver at some point this summer so fans can expect the next chapter to land on Netflix in 2023.

Season four picks up not long after the end of season three, with Mel and Jack visiting a fertility doctor together to discuss the fact that she is pregnant, Lizzie still angry at ex Ricky and Doc and Hope finally reunited.

The synopsis reads: "For years, [Mel] yearned to be a mother and her dream is one step closer to reality. While Jack is supportive and excited, the question of paternity continues to gnaw at him.

"Complicating matters is the arrival of a handsome new doctor, who's in the market to start a family of his own. Hope is still healing from her car accident, and the lingering psychological effects of her brain injury will have profound consequences for both her and Doc."
