Plot Synopsis

Created by Claudia Karvan and Kelsey Munro, BUMP is a half-hour dramedy series about Oly, an overachieving 17-year-old student who knows exactly where she's going. Her boyfriend, doctor's son Lachie, ticks all the right boxes. And she and her best friend, Reema, share an ambitious 10-year plan: top grades, international relations at a university, work for the UN, save the world. Oly's mother Angie is the head of English at her inner city high school; and her father Dom is a recently redundant executive who's been spending nights on his moored boat. Angie and Dom are lost in their own mid-life reckoning. At school Oly collapses in agony. She's sped to hospital in an ambulance, accompanied by Angie, and they are both stunned -- horrified! -- to discover that Oly is in labor. Blindsided, in deep shock, Oly rejects the baby entirely. If she doesn't acknowledge the baby, then she doesn't have to acknowledge how her life has irrevocably changed, or that the baby's father is not her boyfriend; it's Santiago "Santi" Hernandez, the laid-back son of Angie's major work crush: Chilean soccer coach Matias. The Hernandez and Chalmers families clash over differing expectations of family obligations and with Angie and Dom on the brink of separation already, and Matias and his wife Rosa battling their own messy household dynamic, the arrival of the baby sets off each family in different ways. BUMP made its U.S. debut on Thursday, August 11, 2022 from 8-9pm ET/PT, as The CW aired back-to-back episodes.
On Thursday, September 29, 2022 from 8-9pm ET/PT, The CW premiered the Season 1 finale of BUMP, debuting back-to-back episodes:

"All Happy Families" (8pm): Oly and Santi's relationship thrives in a bubble of love at the Hernandez house. Rosa goes out to escape and brings home some tough truths on motherhood that test Oly's rose-colored perspective. Despite Oly trying to avoid it, the Chalmers-Davis family try to clarify the state of the family unit, but Angie's explanation to Oly only brings more division.

"Matrescence" (8:30pm): Christening Day arrives and Bernardita leads the excitement in the Hernandez household and Oly's doubts escalate during the preparations. Oly's friends rally around her and she contemplates her future, having a heart-to-heart with Santi, and comforting Angie as she reacts to her new relationship status. The old Oly emerges as she starts to embrace her own version of motherhood.
