In the first trailers for Neighbours’ last episode, couples who have been separated for a while and long-lost friends reunite on Ramsay Street.
After 37 years on television, the long-running Australian serial will end with a double-episode special on Friday night in the UK.
Many well-known actors who have previously visited Erinsborough will appear in the special, including Kylie Minogue, Margot Robbie, Guy Pearce, Jason Donovan, and Natalie Imbruglia.
Despite the character Madge Bishop passing away in 2001, Anne Charleston, who performed the role, is one of the Neighbours stalwarts set to reprise their roles for the finale.
Her comeback to the big screen occurs in a scene where Susasn Kennedy, the wife of the doctor Karl, breaks down in tears as she recalls both her past and present neighbours.
For the finale, former neighbours Mike, Jane, Charlene, and Scott reunite.
The final episode aired on Australian television on Thursday night, and a group of devoted viewers braved Melbourne’s drizzly, wintry weather to witness the star-studded soap opera’s finale outside.
According to Deadline, the last episode had Channel Ten’s highest TV ratings in 13 years.
According to the report, 1.4 million viewers watched the finale at its peak, with an average of 1.2 million Australian viewers tuning in nationwide.
Pearce, who plays Mike Young again, can be seen hugging his closest buddy Scott Robinson (Donovan) and Minogue’s Charlene Mitchell in clips aired on Australia’s Channel 7.
He might also be seen getting back in touch with Jane Harris, who is portrayed by Annie Jones, his former flame.
Pearce’s part in the Australian soap opera served as a springboard for his career in Hollywood, where he went on to secure parts in high-profile movies including LA Confidential, The Time Machine, and Christopher Nolan’s Memento.
As their former home is put up for sale, global pop diva Minogue and singer Donovan can be spotted going back there while wearing Charlene’s signature overalls.
Also appearing in the finale as Izzy Hoyland is singer Natalie Bassingthwaighte, who is shown sobbing while addressing an unidentified person: “Your tale, my story. I was looking for an excuse to return.
Along with Paul Keane, who portrayed Des Clarke, Mark Little, who played Joe Mangel, and Peter O’Brien, who played Shane Ramsay in the first episode of the show, all make appearances in the finale.
A number of well-known characters from the soap’s 2000s era are also expected to return. They consist of James Mason as Chris Pappas, Morgan Baker as Callum Rebecchi, and Chris Milligan who played Kyle Canning.
Prior to the finale’s airing, Channel 5 quoted Minogue as saying: “It feels incredible, bizarre, and extremely emotional. There were a few familiar faces because we worked with the same director as in the 1980s.
“Same houses, same street—there is no simple solution; there is only a jumble of feelings, yet I’m quite happy. very present in the moment
She remarked that Charlene “had such a presence in people’s memories.” “I didn’t know how it would function. The conclusion of Neighbours has given everything an entirely new perspective and provided the opportunity for this to occur. Although I didn’t really anticipate it, now that it occurred, it feels fantastic.
She continued, “The curls are exactly as huge, and the mousse is back!” regarding her character’s distinctive appearance.
In 1986, the Australian performer and actor made her debut appearance in the soap opera as Charlene; in the conclusion, she plays the character once more.
The last sequences for the 1985 television drama Neighbours, which depicts the lives of people who live and work in the fictional Melbourne suburb of Erinsborough, were filmed in the first few weeks of June.
After being dropped by Channel 5 earlier this year, it is ending production because it was unable to find fresh funding.
The final two episodes of Neighbours will air on Channel 5 on Friday, July 29 at 9 p.m.
