It’s the show that brought us a mixture of so much joy and heartfelt emotion, and now 10 years on from the final episode there are talks of hit Aussie series McLeod’s Daughters getting a reboot.
There were first talks of a show reunion back in 2017 but the plans were cut short because of reported creative differences.
But now the idea is alive once again and now more than ever with this year being the 10th anniversary of McLeod’s Daughters’ final season which aired in 2009. And it seems that the cast is all for it!
Bridie Carter, who starred as Tess McLeod in the much-loved drama, was asked about the possibility of a revival while at the TV Week Logie Awards over the weekend.
She told TV Week that the fans really want it and so she definitely isn’t ruling out the idea.
“I’ll tell you this, the shoes I have on tonight are Sergio Rossi and I wore them to our first McLeod’s Logies in 2002,” the actress told TV Week.
“So that is a testament for how long this show… it’s still going! People out [on the red carpet] are still talking about it.
“What I say to everybody is, I am like Tess McLeod and I will never give up.”
Bridie’s co-star from the show, Myles Pollard also spoke with Today Extra yesterday, telling them that he’s also on board for the reboot.
“It’s just been released in America on Amazon Prime and it’s just going gang busters,” he said about the original series. “So look, while people are still talking about it and there’s an appetite, why not.”
As for what a reboot could explore, Myles had a number of ideas up his sleeve.
“There’s so many different story lines. We could have the vegans taking back the farms,” he continued. “And the food crisis, a lot of our product is being exported.”
“It writes itself,” added Today Extra host Brooke Boney.
In an entertainment period when reboots are taking place left, right and centre, we can’t think of a reason why this shouldn’t happen! Bring back McLeod’s Daughters (or we will riot…)!
