A lot of changes are coming to Home and Away as beloved characters unexpectedly leave the show and new faces join the ensemble.

As production is scheduled to begin in about five to six months, keen-eyed fans have already been treated to tantalizing glimpses of the drama.

The renowned soap opera Home and Away’s future has been discussed by the news website Back to the Bay.

According to the website, newcomers have been observed on set recently, and one well-liked character has been noticeably absent, leading to rumors of a potential departure.

Joshua Orpin, a new bad boy on Home and Away, was just revealed to be coming to the Bay.

In March, the actor told The Daily Telegraph that fans should be prepared for some tension to arise in the beach town when he arrives.

He disclosed, “I can say that he is a bit of a bad boy who enters the show and causes some trouble among the Summer Bay locals. He seems like one thing on the surface, but I’ve had a lot of fun exploring a great depth to him.”

Among the many projects Orpin has worked on are Preacher, Love Me, Upright, and the American superhero series Titans.

In other roles, Hailey Pinto is anticipated to play Abigail Fowler, the sister of Tristan Gorey’s Levi Fowler and Stephanie Panozzo’s Eden Fowler.

Fans with keen eyes have noticed Hailey recording what looked to be a celebration of Eden and Cash Newman’s engagement (Nicholas Cartwright).

According to the fan website, Pinto’s role should be on screen within the next three months.

Actor Aaron Jeffrey, 53, from New Zealand, will appear in the series as the father of Eden, Levi, and Abigail, James “Jimmy” Fowler.

In addition to his roles in McLeod’s Daughters, Wentworth, and Water Rats, Aaron most recently costarred in the Netflix drama Pieces of Her with Toni Collette, who is nominated for an Oscar.

Fans can anticipate seeing a lot of new faces, but one well-known figure is put in danger.

Jacqui Purvis, who has been Felicity Newman’s actress for the previous three years, was reportedly last spotted on set in March, according to Back to the Bay.

“It seems like she’s leaving the show or stopped filming because someone told me she’s overseas and I’m not sure when she’ll return,” a fan commented on the website. “I know someone went to Palm Beach today.”

There’s been no formal confirmation yet.
