The Maitland Mercury reports that Home and Away will be returning to shoot scenes at Maitland Gaol next week.
The former gaol at East Maitland, located north-west of Newcastle in the lower Hunter region, has been seen on-screen a few times since it’s Home and Away debut in 2003, when Dani Sutherland was imprisoned for knocking down Kane Phillips.
Whilst details of the storyline are of course closely guarded, Newcastle based talent management agency Models + Actors put a casting call out this week for male extras to act as prisoners and guards.
Maitland Gaol has also posted a notice on its website stating that they will be closed to the public from 16th-19th August for filming.
By our calculations, we expect the scenes to be aired in the opening weeks of the 2017 season, so could it be possible that this year’s season finale will lead to one of our favourite male characters getting locked up?
Or could someone merely be visiting an inmate?
The possibilities are endless, but with four days of filming the scenes could be quite substantial or spread out over several weeks.
