AFTER 37 YEARS ON THE Camera, On August 1, Neighbours will say their final goodbyes with an hour-long programme.
The Sun can tell that the closing scene will see Kylie Minogue and Jason Donovan return to Ramsey Street – 34 years after they left the serial. This is sure to make die-hard fans cry.
The couple turns to each other in an emotional moment before beaming and proclaiming they are “home.”
After playing Charlene and Scott Robinson on the Australian soap, Kylie, 54, and Jason, 54, saw their careers take off.
Kylie’s last appearance on the show was in July 1988, while Jason lasted for another year, until May 1989.
They’ve both gone on to sell millions of albums throughout the world since then.
Their 1988 single Especially For You debuted at number two in the UK charts and sold over a million copies after a fan campaign in 2014.
“Everyone is sad the show is coming to an end,” a source claimed, “but they are determined to go out on a high.”
“Kylie and Jason have such strong links to the show that they didn’t hesitate to come back.”
“The last sequence, which sees Charlene and Scott return to the street and announce “we’re home,” will bring tears to the eyes of viewers.
“The bosses purposefully wrote the screenplay so that Neighbours could return in a few years if anyone wanted to save it.”
When Scott and Charlene’s wedding broadcast for the first time in 1987, it drew a whopping 2 million people in Australia.
The following year, 20 million people in the United Kingdom tuned in to watch the wedding.
“I will be forever grateful for the experience and the people I met on Neighbours,” Kylie remarked of her stint on the show.
“We had no clue how popular the show would become or how deeply people would care about it.”
“To be honest, it has kept my family working for a long time,” Jason continued.
“My daughter is currently in it, and my father was formerly in it.” I believe we should be grateful for the performers, producers, writers, and directors it has provided for Australia.”
The Sun originally reported on Neighbours’ cancellation in March, after the show’s producers, Fremantle Media, were unable to find a buyer.
“They’ve been working frantically to acquire funds from other networks but tragically they’ve been unable to salvage the soap,” a source stated at the time.
“The announcement will clarify that the soap will end this summer, and that they have been overwhelmed by the love and support from the audience since the news surfaced,” says the press release.
