It's the moment we've all been waiting for ...

If you're anything like us, from 2008 to 2013 you would've been glued to your TV screens watching Packed to the Rafters.

Last year, fans were delighted with the announcement a reboot was in the making after streaming service Amazon Prime confirmed it was rejigging the beloved show.

And now we officially have a trailer!

Aptly titled, Back to the Rafters, the reboot picks up six years after the season six finale.

Much of the original cast from the hit Channel Seven show has returned for the series, including Hugh Sheridan, Rebecca Gibney, Erik Thomson, Angus McLaren, Michael Caton and George Houvardas.

According to the synopsis, Dave (Erik Thomson) and Julie (Rebecca Gibney) are adjusting to a new life in the country with their youngest child Ruby (Willow Speers).

Julie struggles with being absent from the rest of her children, while Dave is embracing the country lifestyle - including a new-found passion for motocross. But a trip back to Sydney to celebrate Dave and Julie's 35th wedding anniversary sees history repeat itself and the family ends up together once again in Ben's two-bedroom home.

But as the Rafter children have now become adults, they face new problems. Ben (Hugh Sheridan) and Cassie (HaiHa Lee) are trying to start a family together, Nathan (Angus McLaren) tries to navigate life as a single dad to Edward (Kaspar Frost) and Rachel (Georgina Haig) lives a secret life in New York.

Meanwhile, Granddad Ted (Michael Caton) struggles with the onset of dementia.

 

Dave and Julie's happiness is threatened when the family reunion reveals the crises below the surface. But whether they are packed under the same roof or far apart, love and laughter still bind them together.

Back to the Rafters premieres exclusively on Amazon Prime Video on September 17.

We can't wait for the revival to hit our screens!
