McLeod’s Daughters Movie Is Finally In The Works

Fans of the iconic TV series McLeod's Daughters will be rejoicing this morning after news broke that a movie was finally in the works.

After eight seasons, 224 episodes and a telemovie, the series will be getting the big screen treatment.

The news was confirmed by series creator and developer Posie Graeme-Evans in an Instagram post.

She wrote: "THE STORY CONTINUES. Yes - it really does. And I'm letting you know first. We're developing a feature film. It's called The McLeods of Drovers Run and I started writing the story a couple of months ago.

"TODAY we heard that we've got backing from Screen Tasmania and the Tasmanian Government to write the very first stage of the movie.

"This is such a vote of confidence in McLeods. And I promise, as we develop the story with the very talented screen writer Emma Jensen that I'll keep you with us every step of the way.

"We're just at the beginning, the very beginning, but we're on our way. No promises but I have such a good feeling about this. Hope I'm right."

It will be interesting to see whether the movie will highlight the current drought crisis gripping Australia or if it will be about something completely different. Will they follow on from Season 8 and show the same beloved characters several years on, or will it be a completely new cast?

Only time will tell.
