In the first season of Bloom, the residents of a small country town were left reeling after an inexplicable ‘fountain of youth’ appeared after a devastating flood.
A mysterious plant with luminous berries offered a second chance to return to your prime, which proved miraculous for some.

Others were corrupted by the plant, and fought to possess it with dramatic consequences.
In season two, time has passed, and news of the miracle has spread, but this time around the plant itself has transformed and the experience and its side effects are far more severe.
Expect a battle between science, nature and faith to erupt when an onslaught of new miracle-seekers arrive in Mullan to experience its restorative benefits
