It was first announced that the reruns of the eighth season would go on hiatus on Friday, 5th August, to make room for the airing of the 2016 Rio Olympic Games on all of Network Seven’s major channels, with confirmation that it would resume at the conclusion of the games.

The reruns will recommence on Tuesday, 23rd August (Episode 1701), however they are currently set to cease again on Wednesday, 7th September (Episode 1712) to make way for the 2016 Rio Paralympic Games.

Home and Away: The Early Years airs on 7TWO at 9:00am, Monday to Friday.
