“Everyone with a family can relate to the House Husbands and their partners as they juggle the pressures of relationships, work and parenting", Nine’s co-Heads of Drama Jo Rooney and Andy Ryan said.
Sue Seeary from Playmaker said: “We are thrilled to be back again for a fifth series. With such a wonderful returning cast and the opportunity of working with Hugh Sheridan as the new House Husband, this series is sure to capture the hearts and funnybones of our loyal and discerning audience."
A Playmaker production for the Nine Network with the support of Film Victoria, House Husbands is executive produced by Andy Ryan and Jo Rooney from the Nine Network alongside David Maher, David Taylor and Sue Seeary from Playmaker.
The show is produced by Sue Seeary, with script producer Jo Martino and directors Grant Brown, Ian Watson, Fiona Banks and Sian Davies.
