Until Tomorrow (1975) is an Australian television soap opera created by Reg Watson. The series was produced in colour by the Reg Grundy Organisation for the Seven Network in 1975. It was the second soap opera made by the Reg Grundy Organisation, the first having been Class of '74. It is notable for having been made in Brisbane as opposed to Sydney or Melbourne, and was one of the few Australian soap operas produced for a daytime slot.

Until Tomorrow examined the activities of various residents of the suburban Vale Street. Storylines involved revenge plots, murder, affairs, and blindness. The cast included television personality Hazel Phillips as a neighbourhood gossip, Babette Stephens, and the then unknown Barry Otto.[1]

The series debuted February 1975 and screened at 2.30 pm, opposite US serial General Hospital. It experienced low ratings and by July was moved to 11.30 am. It was cancelled after a run of 180 episodes with none of the current storylines concluded in the final episode.[2]

Until Tomorrow was Reg Watson's first Australian soap opera.[3] He went on to devise the more successful soap operas The Young Doctors (1976), The Restless Years (1977), Prisoner (1979), Sons and Daughters (1981), and Neighbours (1985).
