It has been revealed that the final episode of Neighbours will air on RTÉ2 in Ireland on August 3rd.
When 37 years on screen, the much-loved Australian serial is coming to an end after UK TV network Channel 5 confirmed in February that it will no longer transmit the show.
Neighbours premiered on Australia’s Seven network in 1985, but the channel cancelled it before it was taken up by Ten the following year, and it became a worldwide hit.
It has been shown on digital channel 10 Peach in Australia since 2011 and is funded by the UK broadcaster.
The show, which has been on RTÉ since January 2, 2001, will be cancelled this summer.
The final 30-minute programme will show on Wednesday, August 3rd, after the second final episode on Tuesday, August 2nd.
Before the programme wraps up for good, many popular characters will return.
The characters Charlene Robinson (Kylie Minogue), Scott Robinson (Jason Donovan), Harold Bishop (Ian Smith), Shane Ramsay (Peter O’Brien), and Izzy Hoyland (Natalie Bassingthwaighte) will all be returning to Ramsay Street.
