In an exciting announcement for Neighbours fans, the beloved soap opera is set to grace our screens once again this September.

In July 2022, die-hard fans said an emotional goodbye to the much-loved soap which had enjoyed a 37-year run before it was axed in Australia after the show was cancelled in the UK and producers were unable to secure alternative funding.

The final episode was certainly an emotional affair, pulling on the heartstrings of every ardent fan with the return of classic stars such as Kylie Minogue, Jason Donovan, Delta Goodrem and Margot Robbie.

But just months after the show was cancelled, it was announced that Neighbours would be making a comeback after producer’s made a deal with Amazon Freevee.

Neighbours fans will be able to keep up with all the latest from their favourite residents of Ramsey Street on Channel 10 from September 18.

The show will also be available to stream on Prime Video.

The show is expected to pick up two years from where it left off with all the usual stars making a comeback including appearances by Hollywood A-listers, Guy Pearce and Mischa Barton.

Before filming for the new series began, fan favourites Alan Fletcher, Jackie Woodburne, Stefan Dennis, Ryan Moloney, Annie Jones, and April Rose Pengilly spoke of their excitement to return during the Neighbours – The Celebration Tour at the London Palladium.

At the time executive producer, Jason Herbison told those in attendance at the tour that “it feels very real now. It’s a hive of activity at the studio”.

“We’re busy writing the next chapter of Neighbours, bringing to life again the show’s much-loved characters as well as new residents,” Herbison said.

Since the official release date was announced, delighted fans have rushed to social media to express their excitement.

Neighbours first aired on March 18, 1985 becoming one of the longest-running drama series in Australian television history.
