Packed To The Rafters is officially coming back to TV but will launch on Amazon Prime Video across 200 countries, rather than on its old home of Channel 7.
‘Back To The Rafters’ will see the next chapter in the story of the Rafter family, who charmed Australian audiences for six years in one of Australia’s most popular drama series, Packed to the Rafters. At its centre were parents Dave and Julie, working to balance their own journey as a couple with the ups and downs of raising a family into adulthood.
Set to begin production in Sydney in 2020, Back to the Rafters produced by Seven Studios will feature original principal cast members Rebecca Gibney (Julie Rafter), Erik Thomson (Dave Rafter), Jessica Marais (Rachel Rafter), Hugh Sheridan (Ben Rafter), Angus McLaren (Nathan Rafter), Michael Caton(Ted Taylor) and George Houvardas (Nick “Carbo” Karandonis).
According to Amazon ‘”the show will pick up six years since we last saw the family. Dave and Julie have created a new life in the country with the youngest daughter Ruby, while the older Rafter children face new challenges and Grandpa Ted struggles to find his place. As Dave enjoys his newfound freedom, Julie must reconcile her responsibilities to the family. They might not be under the same roof, but the same honesty, love and laughter bonds them more tightly now than ever before.”
We cannot wait!
