Rafters will end after season 6

It was always a given Australia favorite family will be departing our screen in July  

Rebecca Gibney told TV Week, “The cast, writers and producers have always said that we wanted to keep Rafters as one of the most-watched shows on TV.

“If we ever felt like we were losing too many cast members, we needed to end on a high.

“We can say that season six winds up an aspect of the Rafter family and there is a sense of finality to it.”

The show will wrap with a finale that will include  appearances from Hugh Sheridan and Jessica Marais, but the ending is left open-ended apparently

it echos the sentiments shared by Erik Thompson earlier this year that it has reached a conclusion of sorts. There is also talk of the show continuing in different formats however I doubt this will occur
