The 40-year-old Australian actress, who is best known for her role as Tess Silverman in McLeod's Daughters, said that now feels like the perfect time to return to work after spending the last few years being a mum.
After leaving McLeod's Daughters, Carter won reality TV show Dancing with the Stars in 2008 but then decided to have a break in order to spend more time with her husband and sons Otis and Tobias.
Carter told the Sunday Herald Sun: "I'm in the right place now. When you finish a long series like McLeod's Daughters you want a break, but I think I'm now ready to do a series again."
She also revealed that she enjoyed recently filming Wild Boys alongside Daniel MacPherson and Zoe Ventoura recently, saying: "I had such a wonderful time... when I finished my little stint I said I'd be happy to come back to do more." MacPherson and Ventoura are believed to be dating, having met on the show.
Last year, Carter revealed that she didn't experience any body image issues after giving birth to Tobias, saying: "I actually feel better about my body after my second pregnancy in a way, because I think I kind of knew what to expect a bit more. I knew that I would have a wobbly belly!"
