The eight-episode fifth season will premiere on Monday, July 26 on the streamer with all episodes available at launch.
Rodger Corser (The Doctor Blake Mysteries) plays Hugh Knight, a rising star in the Sydney heart surgery ranks.

Check out the exclusive trailer below:
In Season 5, when the Knight family and the entire township of Whyhope are plunged into crisis, all eyes turn to Hugh to save them.
