Amazon Prime’s commitment to developing Australian local productions is going to be a major driving force in this year’s programming. From securing some of the most premium movie blockbusters to local comedian Rebel Wilson hosting a new comedy series, the return of a beloved national treasure, Packed to the Rafters was said to be making a comeback!
Commissioned by Amazon Studios and produced by Seven Studios, BACK to the Rafters picks up six years since we last saw the Rafter family. Dave and Julie have created a new life in the country with youngest daughter Ruby, while the older Rafter children face new challenges and Grandpa Ted struggles to find his place. As Dave enjoys his new found 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.
Today, Amazon shared the first official image from the set of the upcoming Australian Amazon Original series, Back to the Rafters.
Georgina Haig will be taking on the role of Rachel Rafter, joining the returning original cast in the first scripted Australian Amazon Original series for Prime Video. Additional newcomers to the series include HaiHa Le, Libby Tanner, Rose Riley, Aaron McGrath, Bruce Spence and introducing Willow Speers and Kaspar Frost.
