Back to the Rafters is one of the best comedy series to come out this year. With an IMDb rating of 7.1/10, it has performed exceedingly well. It explores the life of fictional characters, Dave and Julie, as they adjust to their new life in the country with their youngest daughter Ruby as the rest of the Rafter children struggle to deal with new challenges.
This series premiered on September 17, 2021. It is a spin-off and sequel to Packed to the Rafters, which aired on Seven Network for 5 years, from 2008 to 2013.
At the moment, the biggest question that needs to be answered is whether fans will be treated to a new season. Let’s explore what we know about this series. Will it be renewed for a new season and will there be new cast members? Let’s find out.
Back to the Rafters Release Date: When will it appear?
We still don’t have any news on the status of this production. Amazon Prime hasn’t said whether there will be a new season or not. Also, it dropped not so long ago which means that the producers and streaming platform will need some time to monitor its performance and gauge whether a new season will be viable.
If the platform decides to renew the series for a new season, we should expect it to come out a mid-next year. However, there may also be some delays, just like with the first season that was behind schedule due to the Covid-19 pandemic. All in all, we will know for sure when a trailer is released. Trust on us to keep you updated if we receive any news regarding the series.
Back to the Rafters Cast: Who will be in?
We will most probably see the same faces in case there will be a season 2. You can expect Jessica Marais as Rachel Rafter, Hugh Sheridan as Ben Rafter, Georgina Haig as Rachel Rafter, George Houvardas as Nick Karandonis, Eric Thomson as Dave Rafter, Rebecca Gibnet as Julie Rafter, Angus McLaren as Nathan Rafter, Libby Tanner as Tessa, Ha Ha Lee as Cassie Rafter, Rose Riley as Anna Davis, Kaspar Frost as Edward Rafter and Aaron L. McGrath as Paddo Steel.
We haven’t heard of any news regarding an exit by any actor. Also, this being a comedy series means that we can expect the same faces.
Back to the Rafters Plot: What should we expect ?
The storyline won’t be any different from the first as this series explores the life of the Rafter family. We should still expect to see the older Rafter children face new challenges and Grandpa Tedd struggle to find his place.
However, there is a possibility that we can see a different storyline or modification of the plot in the upcoming season since creators are allowed to be creative and spontaneous. Let’s wait and see if there will be something different.
The new season may have six episodes, just like the former. With different writers and producers, it will definitely be a huge success.
Back to the Rafters Trailer: When can we watch?
We don’t have any news about the probability of a new season. We can’t also tell when it will drop. There can’t, therefore, be a trailer at the moment. It may come up a few weeks or months before the release date. Here is a trailer of the first season:
