Seven backs Winners but questions Rafters

August 11, 2012 Leave a comment

The Seven Network has renewed its Australian drama series Winners and Losers for a third season, but reports today suggest the broadcaster is questioning the future of Packed to the Rafters.

While Seven has already confirmed a sixth season of Rafters for 2013, there are whispers that it will be the show’s last, according to the Herald Sun.

It’s understood that the final season would be a “celebration” with original cast members in talks to return, including Jessica Marais and Hugh Sheridan who is now host of Ten‘s I Will Survive.

Meanwhile, Melissa Bergland, Virginia Gay, Zoe Tuckwell-Smith, and Melanie Vallejo will all return for the third season of Winners and Losers next year.

Seven’s head of drama Julie McGauran said: “2013 is going to be a landmark year for Channel Seven’s drama department. Our drama slate is at full capacity with the return of Winners and Losers as well as Packed to the Rafters, Home and Away and the new drama A Place to Call Home.”
