Start dusting off your boots and cowboy hats, because a McLeod’s Daughters movie is officially in the works!

The creator of the series, which was one of the most popular TV drama’s of the 2000’s, revealed the very exciting news in a post on social media.

“THE STORY CONTINUES. Yes – it really does. And I’m letting you know first,” writer Posie Graeme-Evans wrote alongside a photo of the iconic McLeod’s branding.

“We’re developing a feature film. It’s called “The McLeods of Drovers Run” and I started writing the story a couple of months ago.”

According to Posie, the McLeod’s Daughters spin-off movie is being made possible thanks to a recent Government grant.

“Today we heard that we’ve got backing from Screen Tasmania and the Tasmanian Government to write the very first stage of the movie. This is such a vote of confidence in McLeods,” she wrote.

Two star’s of the show, Bridie Carter and Simmone Mackinnon, who played much-loved characters Tess and Stevie in the series, also shared the post on their own instagram accounts.

It’s been 11 long years since the beloved country TV series came to an end, so as expected, the news sent fans into a frenzy.

“Best news ever!” one person wrote. While another commented “OMG I’m crying, this just made my day”.

THE STORY CONTINUES. Yes – it really does. And I’m letting you know first. We’re developing a feature film. It’s called “The McLeods of Drovers Run” and I started writing the story a couple of months ago. TODAY we heard that we’ve got backing from Screen Tasmania and the Tasmanian Government to write the very first stage of the movie. This is such a vote of confidence in McLeods. And I promise, as we develop the story with the very talented screen writer Emma Jensen (“Mary Shelley” and the upcoming release, “I am Woman” – the Helen Reddy story) that I’ll keep you with us every step of the way. We’re just at the beginning, the very beginning, but we’re on our way. No promises but I have such a good feeling about this. Hope I’m right ? #mcleodsmovie #backinthesaddle #happy #screentasmania #onourway #justthebeginjng #breakthrough #emmajensen #transmissionfilms #elisearcher
