It’s time to say farewell to Neighbours after 37 years, 8903 episodes, and numerous marriages, funerals, births, and catastrophes. and it’s now much earlier to say goodbye.
The series finale of Neighbours will run on Friday, July 29, 2022, in a dedicated primetime timeslot, according to a Channel 5 announcement today.
At 9 p.m. on Channel 5, the series’ final two episodes, #8902 and #8903, will conclude its 37-year run.
This is in addition to episode #8901, which will air on the same day at 1:45 pm and 6 pm in the customary afternoon and evening timeslots.
This information was released soon after Channel Ten said today that the series finale would be broadcast as a special 90-minute special at 7:30pm on Thursday, July 28, 2022.
The network said that they will air a staggering 12 episodes over the course of four nights, completing the series from Monday to Thursday.
The network also issued a three-minute finale promo, calling the concluding episodes a “history-making conclusion” with all the iconic Neighbours moments.
The series finale of Channel Ten was announced to be simultaneously broadcast on the primary station and secondary channel 10 Peach, where the programme has been airing since 2011.
The UK and Australia broadcasts of the series finale were initially scheduled for August 1st.
However, based on Channel 5’s tease of viewers, it appears that there may be more news in the upcoming weeks.
“Fan favourites from the past will be returning to Ramsay Street to celebrate with our Erinsborough locals in what is sure to be a gripping and emotional finale. This send-off will have something for everyone, spanning all generations and decades from the opening scene in 1985 to the final episode in 2022.
“Further announcements will be made in the coming weeks concerning other surprises to send farewell the famous soap in style.”
