Storyline and plot
Created by Sarah Lambert, Love Child is an Australian drama television series that focuses on the lives and work of employees and patients at a hospital in Sydney, Australia. The series originally aired on Nine Network in February of 2014. Love Child Season 3 premiered on June 20, 2016.
In this series, workers and patients at a fictional hospital in Stanton House fight the unjust government system, which forces underage mothers to give up their children for adoption. Set in the 1960’s, the show depicts all of the struggles of the mothers in trying to save, or later find their children, as well as the ethical battles of the hospital staff, the members of which try to fight their locked emotions and just do their job, no matter how difficult it may be. Providing a great recreation of the important era of sexual and cultural revolution of the ‘60’s in Australia, the series shows the people of today what women went through at that time.
Ratings, reviews and renewal chances
Pulling an average of 1.2 million viewers per series and boasting a score of 7.6 on IMDb, Love Child was nominated for several awards and received critical acclaim.
