The actors will be live on stage for fans to hear personal anecdotes and stories from the Drovers Run family, participate in a Q&A session, and view and discuss their favourite scenes.
There will be limited-edition and official McLeod’s Daughters merchandise designed specifically for the event, as well as an opportunity to purchase a limited number of tickets for either the private backstage VIP tour or an intimate Golden Supper with the cast.
McLeod’s Daughters, about five women running a cattle station in the South Australian outback, aired for eight seasons on Channel Nine between 2001 and 2009.
It was one of the most successful shows on Australian TV, garnering an average of 1.51 million viewers during its first season.
Two years ago, reports surfaced that Channel Nine was considering a reboot.
In July 2017, a network spokesman told News.com.au: ‘We are talking to [co-creator] Posie Graeme-Evans about how we could tackle it.
‘We know how much everybody loves McLeod’s Daughters, it’s an important part of our heritage. Nothing is commissioned, or set in stone.’
However, those plans were scrapped a few months later, reportedly due to ‘creative differences’ between Nine and the Graeme-Evans.
