Trivia

The series was a continuation of the three part mini-series, Return to Eden (1983), transmitted in Australia in 1983. The storyline was set seven years after the ending of the mini-series, and several of the original cast members reprised their roles for the TV series, though the roles of Stephanie's two children were recast as they were now grown.

One of the best shows of the 80s to come out of Australia!
30 January 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

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.
