Kylie Minogue and Jason Donovan, aka Scott and Charlene, will return to Neighbours for the show’s conclusion after more than 30 years away from our screens.
On Monday, executive producer Jason Herbison confirmed the happy news, stating that concluding the show without the “ultimate Neighbours pair” “wouldn’t feel right.”
Jason tweeted, “We are happy that Jason and Kylie have returned home to play a very special part in our season finale.”
It’s been a “emotional journey for them and us, and I’m sure it will be for our viewers,” according to Jason.
Fans were enthralled when Kylie and Jason shared a mysterious look of their screenplays on their Instagram profiles.
In March, Kylie reacted to allegations that the world was saying farewell to the show on Twitter.
“I’ll be grateful for the experience and the people I made on Neighbours for the rest of my life.”
“We had no clue how popular the show would become or how deeply people would feel about it.”
“I think it’s time to celebrate Neighbours,” Jason said in another statement.
“To be honest, it has kept my family employed for a long period,” he remarked. “My daughter is currently in it, and my father was formerly in it.” I believe we should be grateful for the performers, producers, writers, and directors it has provided for Australia.”
The show was cancelled because a significant broadcast partner in the United Kingdom dropped it from their schedule.
“Despite an extended hunt for other funding, we simply have no choice except to rest the show,” they said on their official Twitter.
“After nearly 37 years and approximately 9,000 episodes broadcast, we regret to inform you that Neighbours will be ending production in June.”
