Tuesday 20 November 2007: Channel Nine announced today that Series 8 of the Australian rural drama McLeod’s Daughters, currently in production, will be its final.

Creator and Executive Producer of McLeod’s Daughters, Posie Graeme-Evans said, “I have always maintained that the series should finish on a high, and while it was still loved by the audience. Based on this belief, in conjunction with Channel Nine, we have come to the decision, that Series 8 will be the last.”

Nine CEO David Gyngell said today, “Channel Nine is extremely proud of McLeod’s Daughters and the incredible success it has enjoyed since premiering in 2001. It has become an iconic Australian drama and has featured the best of local talent, both in front of, and behind the cameras.”

A phenomenally successful series, both locally and internationally, McLeod’s has been a top performer for Nine each season and has been sold to an incredible 200 countries around the world. The series has also received 8 Logies Awards, including two for Most Popular Drama Series in 2004/05.

McLeod’s Daughters is shot entirely on location in South Australia, centres on the vast cattle property of Drovers Run and the lives and loves of the women who work it. The eighth and final series starring Simmone Jade Mackinnon, Aaron Jeffery, Abi Tucker, Michala Banas, Matt Passmore, Doris Younane, Gillian Alexy, Luke Jacobz and Dustin Clare, will premiere in early 2008 on Channel Nine.
