Now the year is about to really begin!
Home and Away has finally announced its official premiere date for 2022, and the show wants you to “Set your alarms! .”
The soap’s Instagram broke the news with a cryptic post breaking down the upcoming launch.
The “Home and Away Countdown Clock,” which crossed time from week to second, was named by Seven as the “Home and Away Countdown Clock.”
It reported “1 week, 7 days, 168 hours, 10,080 minutes, and 604,800 seconds” at the time of posting.
The exciting program captioned its announcement, “It’s exactly 604,800 seconds till #HomeandAway returns to our screens!
The cryptic messaging translates to January 31.
Ryder (Lukas Radovich) and Theo Poulos (Matt Evans) filmed a video challenge depicting Ryder being buried alive in a coffin in last year’s season finale.
They wanted to make money by streaming the prank live for five hours from a remote location in the jungle.
When Theo chooses to leave the site to eat lunch, he tripped over and falls down a ravine, knocking him down.
The opening episode of the new season of Home and Away will focus on the ramifications of Ryder being stuck below with his oxygen supply running out.
When Ryder checks his feed, he realizes he only has 19 minutes of oxygen left.
Theo wakes up, but his luck isn’t on his side because his leg is trapped beneath a barbed wire and his phone is out of reach.
Meanwhile, Alf Stewart (Ray Meagher) and Justin Morgan (James Stewart) ask each other if they’ve seen the boys, and as the hours pass with no sign of them, they become anxious.
To no avail, Justin approaches Roo Stewart (Georgie Parker) and asks her if she knows where they are.
Fortunately, he stumbles across a friend’s live feed of the burial challenge, and Roo recognizes the location where they buried the coffin.
However, Ryder passes unconsciously while they’re trying to figure out where they are, and everything depends on Roo and Justin getting to him in time.
