After rising to fame as Texas on the hit Australian crime mystery series, Tristan has since narrated the Disney+ show Shipwreck Hunters and will make his anticipated film debut in Kid Snow in 2024.

The show will be airing at the slightly earlier time of 1pm on weekdays from Monday, October 30 until the current series ends on Friday, November 17.

Summer Bay fans can expect the show to return to its usual Channel 5 timeslot of 1.45pm on weekdays when the new series launches in the new year, just in time to welcome the newest member of the Home and Away family.

Home and Away will air weekdays at 1pm on Channel 5 until Friday, November 17 and 6pm on 5STAR. First-look screenings air at 6:30pm on 5STAR and the show also streams on My5.

Selected classic episodes are available via Prime Video in the UK.
