Which 00's Aussie TV Show Might Be Getting A Reboot?
Talk about a blast from the past!
Channel Nine has revealed that it is looking to reboot classic Aussie drama McLeod’s Daughters.
The original series about the lives and loves of sisters running a property in rural Australia originally ran from 2001 until 2009.
A Nine spokesman said today:
“We are talking to (creator) Posie Graeme Evans about how we could tackle it,”
“We know how much everybody loves McLeod’s Daughters, it’s an important part of our heritage.
“Nothing is commissioned, or set in stone.”
Social posts from two former stars Michala Banas and Simmone Jade Mackinnon had fans talking earlier today.
“Watch this space ...” tweeted Banas.
Mackinnon also tweeted the same picture and message.
Banas has told News Corp Australia she's unaware of any plans to revive the show, but did say “never say never”.
“It’s been over 10 years since the show finished, and people, bless them, are still saying, ‘Are you going to make another show?’ That’s not happening, unfortunately.”
However Banas suggested that her tweets were about a planned catch up with her former co-stars.
“The three of us were very good mates for a lot of years, and we’re still very good mates but we’re never in the same place at the same time.
“So we’re trying to make that happen.”
“It won’t be in a working capacity. At this stage. Unless someone wants to write us a show. Go for it!”
In its heyday, McLeod’s averaged more than 1.5 million viewers across the capital cities.
