Neighbours reveals the famous faces set to join Kylie Minogue and Jason Donovan in final ever episode

We know already about Neighbours’ return of queen Scott and king Charlene, but now Channel 5 has revealed that the beloved characters will be returning to Ramsay Street in the series finale.

After 37 years of television, the last episode of neighbours will air in August. It will feature fan favorites returning to Australia’s most iconic cul-de-sac, to say goodbye.

This soap opera was first broadcast in 1985 and follows the lives and work of people living in Erinsborough, a fictional suburb of Melbourne. It has also helped to launch the careers of many stars, including Margot Robbie and Russell Crowe.

In a Sky News interview, Alan Fletcher, Dr Karl Kennedy’s longest-serving star, said that it would be an “emotional” final day on set.

Channel 5 has now announced the other stars that will be participating in the soap’s series finale. They said the soap will honor “the most memorable characters across many eras”.

Which other names will appear on the credits of the last Neighbours ever?

More information on Kylie Minogue

Minogue and Donovan will be joined by Peter O’Brien from the 1980s. He played Shane Ramsay in the first episode, Ian Smith played Harold Bishop, and Mark Little played Joe Mangel. Paul Keane played Des Clarke.

Smith, who famously played Harold in a storyline that saw him return from the dead, said: “It is an absolute pleasure to come back.”

He called himself a “sook”, an Australian term for crybaby. I will be shocked on the last night of Neighbours.

“It will really be the end of an era, and I am so proud that I was a part it.”

The 1990s saw stars such as Daniel MacPherson who played Joel Samuels and Benjamin McNair who played Malcolm Kennedy. Melissa Bell, who played Lucy Robinson, was played by Melissa Bell, and Lesley Baker who played Angie Rebecchi.

MacPherson stated that “joining Neighbours aged 17 was a great way to kickstart a career that will continue to be an adventure of a lifetime.”

“To go back to play Joel was a small gesture of my immense gratitude to the cast, crew, and fans of The X-Files.”

Jason Herbison, Neighbours’ executive producer, stated that “Whether it’s the ’80s or ’90s, the noughties, teens, or both, we will deliver something for everyone as Neighbours comes to an end.”

“We will celebrate the most memorable characters across many eras along with the current cast, with some surprises up our sleeves.”
