This season had several changes. There was a new intro, a new theme tune sung by Sofie Van Moll and rock artist Peter Evrard. The new song was created by Will Tura and Steve Willaert. The lyrics were written by Frank Dingenen, an actor who had also played a guest role in Thuis and reprised his role at the start of season 13.
This season saw the introduction of Sonja and Ludo De Backer, Dorien's parents. Later on this season, civil law notary Peter Vlerick, played by Geert Hunaerts, will be introduced as a Bastiaens family friend. Meanwhile, Lien Van de Kelder ended her three-episode guest appearance. However, she was slated to return as Sofie Bastiaens on 21 November 2007.
In August 2007, a preview of the intro was put online. This intro uses the effect of several shots in one screen. After each scene of shots, in which several characters can be seen, which wasn't the fact in the two latest intro's, a single shot of two characters with their character's name and the actor's names is seen. Each day the intro opening titles change. Every intro uses 5 shots and therefore the individual shot with names of 10 actors/characters.
At the end of last season, Kristin Arras her character Mathilde Reimers was murdered and written out. She's the only character to disappear from the main cast from season 12. The characters introduced last season and part of the main cast, but not yet of the opening titles were all added to the opening titles. These were Viktor Corthout and Sandrine Verbeelen (first individual shots in intro in episode 3 of season 13), Dorien De Backer and Youssef Bakali (first individual shots in intro in episode 4 of season 13). Daisy a supporting character in season 12 was also added to the main cast and the opening titles (first individual shot in intro in episode 4 of season 13). It wasn't quite certain if she would play a more important role this season. Surprisingly, Julia was also added to the opening titles, and had her first individual shot in the intro in episode 2 of season 13. Julia only appeared in a few episodes of season 12 and was considered a guest character. She still has to appear this season.
It was announced in early 2007 that Marie Van Goethem played by Patsy Vandermeeren, Werner Van Sevenant played by Peter Van Asbrouck, Eva Verbist played by Nathalie Wijnants and Leontien Vercammen played by Marijke Hofkens will leave onscreen in 2007.
Season 12 saw several interesting plotlines. The last episode of season 12 included several cliffhangers: Maarten who murdered Mathilde a few days earlier and held Eva and Nandje hostage after he started a fire in the house. Werner who tried to save them, by going inside the burning house. Sam and Dorien having a car accident, after a motorcycle with Kasper and Amber suddenly showed up. Jenny receiving her own death letter by a woman with a ring around her finger. Smeekens writing a (goodbye) letter. This means 8 people could possibly get killed off.
Several new characters were introduced and played an important role in this season. They will probably all become main characters next season that appear in the intro.
This season saw the departure of Angèle Backx and Sofie Bastiaens. At the end of the season, Mathilde Reimers was killed off. It was stated that also Peter Van Assbroeck who plays Werner, Nathalie Wijnants who plays Eva, Marijke Hofkens who plays Leontien and Patsy Van Der Meeren who plays Marie will be written out in 2007. It was a theory that Eva and Werner might be killed of in the fire started by Maarten Reimers.
