Nine Network confirms McLeod’s Daughters revival rumours

From rumour to reality: Could our favourite show really be coming back?

By TV Week team
Our dreams of a McLeod’s Daughters reunion could be realised! The Nine Network have confirmed they are in talks with the series creator Poise Graeme Evans.
“We are talking to (creator) Posie Graeme Evans about how we could tackle it,” a spokesperson for the network told The Daily Telegraph.
“We know how much everybody loves McLeod’s Daughters, it’s an important part of our heritage.
“Nothing is commissioned, or set in stone.”
The response comes off the back of two social media posts from cast members Michala Banas, Simmone Jade Mackinnon and Rachel Carpani.
The trio uploaded a picture of their three characters Stevie (Simmone), Kate (Michala) and Jodi (Rachel) with the caption, “Watch this space…”

Many of the cast have gone on to star in a range of Australian shows. Bridie Carter, who played Tess McLeod, now stars in 800 Words.
Lisa Chappell, who played Tess’ sister Claire, reflects on the success of the show.
McLeod’s came along right when Australian drama needed it,” she explains. “The timing was right, as we were this big, very different show about women on the land. It had a big heart. It struck a chord and the audience came with us.”
The star of Doctor Doctor, Rodger Corser, also appeared in the series as Peter Johnson and fondly remembers his time on the show.
“It was great riding the horses,” he tells TV WEEK. “We filmed an hour away from Adelaide so when we had a few hours off, we’d go for a ride and practice our skills. Aaron [Jeffery] and Miles [Pollard] had houses in Gawler, so we'd crash with them on days off and give the pub in town a nudge."
The series ran for eight seasons from 2001 to 2009. We hope to see a revival before 2019!
