On Monday, May 25, Neighbours begins its final week, which will feature four nights of extra episodes.
Favorites from the prior week will return.
Greg Barnett, the commissioning editor for Channel 5, also spoke with Digital Spy about the production, saying, “(Executive Producer) Jason Herbison kept saying on our Monday catch-ups that he was trying to pull it off, then one day he rang me and said that (Kylie & Jason) both returned to Pin Oak Court (the actual location of Ramsay Street) the day before, and their scenes were in the can. Then he called me to let me know Guy Pearce would be back for three episodes.
“I believe it is crucial to note that these returnees were adamant that the final episode of Neighbours not be focused on them. They were very aware that there was a cast of individuals that had been in Erinsborough for a lot longer than they had, and that their contributions should reflect that.
The drama executive has now openly discussed the decision to discontinue from Channel 5’s perspective.
“As was stated in the news, the programme had been losing Channel 5 significant sums of money every year since the broadcaster purchased it, and it had become a serious issue. The company couldn’t keep losing money, he claimed.
