PACKED TO THE RAFTERS RETURNS FOR 2012
Australia’s favourite family drama Packed to the Rafters is back – the new season premiering on Valentine’s Day, February 14, at 8.30pm.
Rebecca Gibney and Erik Thomson lead the cast, and are joined by Cameron Daddo and Brooke Satchwell, as the Rafters return with a wedding, new romances and family drama.
Daddo will make his return to Australian TV screens as newspaper editor Adam Goodman. Satchwell heats things up as new Rafter Electrical employee Frankie Calasso, who causes some major sparks with Coby (Ryan Corr).
Also joining the cast this year are Jacob Allen as Dave’s brother Matt Jennings, and Samantha Tolj as Sian Parry, a new love interest.
A year on from Melissa’s death, Ben (Hugh Sheridan) decides to move forward with his friendship with Emma (Zoe Cramond). Could this be the year Ben allows himself to follow his heart and find happiness again?
After eloping last year, Carbo (George Houvardas) and Retta (Hannah Marshall) find their “secret wedding” a difficult secret to keep. With his parents arriving home to organise a big Greek wedding, will they go through with another ceremony to please the family?
Nathan (Angus McLaren) finds himself at a crossroads, with a stalled career and no love on the horizon – he has some big choices to make, which will affect the family.
This year, Ted (Michael Caton) faces a major health scare, which will bring the family closer together.
Jake (James Stewart), still missing Rachel (Jessica Marais), faces more drama, as his father re-appears. And look out for a guest appearance from a Rafter favourite!
More family drama, more romance, more laughter – Rafters returns in 2012 for its biggest year yet.
