Amazon Prime Is Rebooting Packed To The Rafters Next Year
Packed to the Rafters was one of those wholesome family shows that had its fair share of dramas.
While it certainly didn't last as long as the likes of Neighbours or Home and Away it certainly left a sizeable hole in people's hearts when it ended in 2008.
But because we live in an era where studios would rather reboot stuff than come up with new shows, fans of PttR have been given a lifeline.
Amazon Prime has become the show's surprising saviour and has announced it will reboot the show for next year.
It will be called Back to the Rafters and will incredibly star the entire cast from the original show, including Rebecca Gibney, Erik Thompson, Jessica Marais, Hugh Sheridan, Angus McLaren, Michael Caton and George Houvardas.
It's unclear whether James Stewart and Ryan Corr, who played Jake Barton and Coby Jennings, will be returning though.

The synopsis for the show has been released and it's certainly piqued our interest.
"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," the synopsis reads.
"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."
Well, that just screams drama.
Production for the reboot is expected to start next year however there's no word on when we can expect to see it on our tellies.
