It has been 9 years since the show ended, but we have some good news for fans missing the tragedies and turmoils that unfolded at Drovers Run.

Australia's Channel Nine confirmed last week it is looking at rebooting the beloved drama series, McLeod’s Daughters!

“We are talking to (creator) Posie Graeme Evans about how we could tackle it,” a Nine spokesman said.

“We know how much everybody loves McLeod’s Daughters, it’s an important part of our heritage.

“Nothing is commissioned, or set in stone.”

The announcement comes after Michala Banas and Simmone Jade Mackinnon both dropped hints on Instagram that the program might return.
