Is Home and Away being cancelled? Show boss speaks out after Neighbours is axed


There are no immediate plans to cancel Home and Away.

After Neighbours, another Australian television programme, was cancelled by Channel 5 due to financial difficulties, worries about the future of the Australian soap opera increased.

Ben Frow, the station’s executive director, has confirmed that Home and Away will continue to air.

Mr. Frow clarified that it would continue to operate in the UK as long as its Australian creators kept it functioning.


When asked if Home and Away was in danger, he responded, “No. However, I think it will be intriguing to observe how we use it as we advance.

“There may be another location on the 5 spectrum where it belongs.

According to him, “It’s a life-of-series deal, so it won’t change until the producers decide to terminate it.”

After 37 seasons, Neighbours has been abruptly cancelled, and this was “a business decision.” “because the funds would “be better spent” on UK-produced programmes.


Or I could spend the money on other things, which is what I chose to do, Mr. Frow said. The money from Neighbours would be better spent on UK programming.

Over the weekend, images of Jason Donovan and Kylie Minogue returning to Ramsay Street surfaced.

The double-header finale will air on Channel 5 on July 29 at 9:00 p.m. Two specials, Neighbours: What Happened Next and Neighbours: The Stars’ Greatest Hits, will come after it.

Neighbours would be ending, according to a statement from March.


It read: “”We have no choice but to put the show on hold in light of the loss of our important broadcast partner in the UK and despite a thorough search for alternative funding.

We acknowledge that this is a great disappointment for our wonderful, devoted fans as well as for the entire team. We appreciate all of your comments and encouragement, and we pledge to end the programme with a bang. We will now be honouring our neighbours.
