“Burning Secrets Will Ignite a Trial by Fire” — All the Details Around New Series ‘Heat’

Heat details: cast, start date, where to watch and more

Unfortunately, bushfires and smoky skies feel like a natural part of the Australian summer. With an incoming El Niño summer already confirmed by the Bureau of Meteorology, it looks like 2023/24 summer will be no different. We’re all accustomed with fire safety practices, alongside scorching temperatures and little rainfall. It might be surprising, then, that so little of Australian TV and cinema centres around bushfires, considering how central and dominant it is to all of our summers. But now, 10 is delivering Heat — a series that’ll see a close-knit group battle with bushfires, but also the secrets, manipulation and turmoil that burns between them.

Coming to 10 and 10 Play, Heat will take place over four parts, telling the story of two families reuniting on their annual rural Victorian get together. There’s an all-too-familiar fire ban in place, and temperatures are apparently set to reach 44°C. However, once bushfire ravages the landscape, the families are bound to the confines of the house, where they both need to survive mother nature, and the betrayals that threaten to tear them apart.

Here’s everything you need to know about Heat, including the familiar faces in it and when you’ll be able to watch.
