Packed To The Rafters producers are promising a happier season of the hit drama this year after hitting a number of emotional lows towards the end of last season.
It was a turbulent end to the third season last year with the death of Mel in a car crash and the subsequent funeral along with Dave’s battle with depression.
However, the show is set to begin a whole lot more positively this month with an engagement party for Carbo and Loretta.
In the opening episode entitled What Lies Beneath, the party takes place three months after the Mel’s funeral.
Ben is still travelling around Australia but is close to returning home while Julie begins to see what’s happening behind his cheerful persona.
Packed To The Rafters returns next Tuesday at 8.30pm on Seven.
