If a new trailer is any indication, Margot Robbie, Natalie Imbruglia, and Guy Pearce may be returning to Neighbours ahead of the show’s last episode.
Following Channel 5’s decision to pull the show from their schedules, producer company Fremantle has confessed that it has been unable to find another broadcast partner in the UK.
Filming for the final month-long on-air celebration has already begun, with the final episode due to air on August 1.
Despite the fact that fans are heartbroken that the renowned programme is coming to an end, there are a few reasons to smile, as a slew of familiar characters, some from every era of the show, are slated to return for the final episode.
Charlene and Scott Robinson’s Kylie Minogue and Jason Donovan will reprise their roles for the final time, while Harold Bishop’s Ian Smith will also return.
Fans have been hoping to see more of Erinsborough’s biggest exporters return in time for the final curtain, with Executive Producer Jason Herbison promising a few more’surprises’ before filming concludes in June.
If a new trailer for the last months of Neighbours is any indication, they could get their wish!
While presenting a sad death, the short teaser also asks who will return for the soap’s final episode, before revealing a number of familiar characters from the past.
Margot Robbie, Natalie Imbruglia, and Guy Pearce are among those who have been confirmed to return, including Izzy Hoyland icon Natalie Bassingthwaighte and Daniel McPherson (Joel Samuels).
Could this be proof that Margot, Natalie, and Guy will pay a quick visit to Ramsay Street to commemorate the conclusion of the programme that made them famous? Is it just supposition, or is it anything more?
Neighbours has been contacted by Metro.co.uk for comment.
Margot Robbie, who played Donna Freedman on Neighbours for three years, went on to star in major blockbuster films such as The Wolf of Wall Street, Once Upon a Time in Hollywood, and I, Tonya, as well as other television shows.
She is most known for playing Harley Quinn, a Batman villain and Joker associate, in a variety of DC Extended Universe productions, including Birds of Prey and Suicide Squad, as well as the sequel The Suicide Squad.
After Hollywood producer Jerry Bruckheimer claimed he was talking to her about the idea, the 31-year-old is reportedly in talks to feature in a female-led Pirates of the Caribbean film.
Will the Oscar-nominated actress make one last journey to Erinsborough to reprise her role as Donna Freedman before the final episode of Neighbours airs?
We certainly hope so!
Meanwhile, Natalie Imbruglia starred as Beth Brennan on the Australian soap between 1992 and 1994 before becoming a pop star with her rendition of Ednaswap’s Torn.
Fans had hoped to see Natalie return to Ramsay Street at some point so Beth could share a scene with son Ned Willis (Ben Hall).
Will Ned, who recently left the programme, make a comeback in the last episode, and will his mother Beth join him?
Last but not least, we have Guy Pearce, who played Mike Young in the late 1980s television series.
Guy left Neighbours in 1989 and went on to star in the films The Adventures of Priscilla: Queen of the Desert and LA Confidential, which helped him gain international recognition.
Mike is best known for his romance with Jane Harris (Annie Jones), and with Jane now residing in Erinsborough, it’s safe to say the character has more motivation than most to return!
