The Braxton Brothers were very popular with Home and Away fans and people were extremely disappointed when they left the show.

Although Brax (Daryl), Heath and Casey aren’t about to return anytime soon, a new River Boy is soon to arrive in Summer Bay.

Now, before we go any further, there are spoilers involved so if you’re not up to speed with the latest goings on, don’t read any further.

We won’t ruin things for you by explaining how or why Dean, aka the River Boy’s latest recruit, comes to the Bay but long story short, Robbo is in danger.

Ash contacts old friends or foes, whatever way you want to look at it, the River Boys for help to hurt Robbo (again, spoilers) and so, Dean rocks up.

Of course, fans are only delighted by the return of the River Boys as you’ll see from these tweets.

Played by Patrick O’Connor, Dean isn’t the only new character to arrive in the bay as Colby, a new police officer, is another new addition to the popular soap.

Colby (Tim Franklin) seems to have it in for Ash but the details of his character haven’t yet been revealed.

According to Digital Spy, he attempts to arrest Ash but a terrible accident involving Alf stops him in his tracks.

Simply put, there’s a lot of drama on the way for Summer Bay’s residents but then, when is it any different?
