    A "McLeod's Daughters" Movie Has Been Officially Announced, So BRB While I Binge The Entire Series Again

    Gather your horse girls and get ready for a rough ride.

    It's been 11 cold, hard years since McLeod's Daughters last graced Australia's television screens.

    And let me tell you, no TV series has ever been able to quite fill the hole that its departure left in my heart.

    But that's all about to change, because in news that will have you "Yeehaw-ing!" 'til the chickens roost, the series creator has just announced a McLeod's Daughters movie is officially in the works.


    Series writer and producer, Posie Graeme Evans, took to Instagram last night to share the "exciting news" with fans:

    "The story continues!" she wrote. "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."

    Evans continued: "I promise, as we develop the story with the very talented screen writer Emma Jensen (Mary Shelley and the upcoming release, I Am Woman, The Helen Reddy Story) 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."

    And fans are pretty damn thrilled with the news.

    Omgosh just read that McLeod's Daughters might be coming back and for real this time 🥺 I've loved that show for so long now.. I'm so happy. If it can come back, I've no doubt that #SanditonPBS will come back to for #SanditonSeason2 So let's keep this #SaveSanditon thing going


    No confirmation yet on when exactly we might be blessed with this offering from the television gods, but saddle up, because you know it's going to be good.
