The show was cancelled at the end of its first season in Australia, which had been originally filmed with a cliffhanger ending in anticipation of a second season. When the series was axed, the cast were brought back to film scenes which tied up the storylines at the last minute to give the show some sort of closure. See more »
One of the best shows of the 80s to come out of Australia!
The show was really well done and the actors brilliantly cast (especially Peta Topano and Rebecca Gilling). Unlike other TV series at the time, "Return to Eden" was actually engaging beyond the banal and cliché that was so prevalent in other productions. While you could miss an episode (or five) of your average soap opera and still be able to follow the story line, no two episodes of "Eden" were alike. The viewer became instantly engaged in the suspense-filled plot portraying the fall and then the phoenix-like rise of Stephanie Harper, love and deceit, family feud and greed. It is really a shame that they had to wrap it up so hurriedly due to funding limitations. I would definitely watch it again if I had a chance and would welcome its release on DVD.
