Eighteen months on from where season five left off, Nina has been in a relationship with dedicated midwife and colleague Leo. Billie has been managing husband Mick's tour in the UK and youngest sibling Jimmy runs his busy Mexican taqueria while his wife Zara undertakes the gruelling challenge of studying for a medical degree.

This season Nina must manage a whole new onslaught of mishaps and revelations, as well as unprecedented professional and personal trials that will see the Proudman clan tested as never before.

When a tragedy brings the family back together, the stability of life unravels, forcing them once again to question what they thought they knew about themselves and the past — and changing the dynamics of the family forever.
