Will Packed To The Rafter’s reunite?

 It was the show that broke the nation’s heart when it ended in 2013.

But after four years, it looks like the much loved Packed to the Rafters could be up for a reunion.

Stars Rebecca Gibney and Angus McLaren have reminisced about their time on the show, telling TV Week that they would definitely be involved if a reunion episode was planned. 

Reunion: after four years, it looks like the much loved Packed to the Rafters could be up for a reunion

52 year old Gold Logie winner Rebecca – who played Julie Rafter – said ‘she’d love to work with Erik Thomson again, as he was her ”best ever on-screen husband.”

And while 28 year old Angus McLaren – who played Nathan Rafter – is busy being Mr Toke on the very popular Australian drama Doctor Doctor, he’s also claimed that he ‘would love to reunite with his old on-screen family.’ 

The 2013 series finale boasted 1.5 million viewers, but was left open-ended on purpose, with Dave and Julie Rafter (Erik Thomson and Rebecca Gibney) travelling around Australia in their Kombi van with baby Ruby. 

The story  is expected to be picked up later in a new format.

Whether this is a spin off, or whether the Rafter’s story will continue beyond a sixth season is still up in the air. 

Daily Mail Australia contacted Channel Seven for comment.
