Neighbours fans get one final chance to say goodbye to their favourite cast members in Melbourne
Fans of Neighbours will get one more opportunity to say goodbye to some of their favourite cast mates.
On Tuesday, the programme announced on their official Twitter account that Neighbours: The Farewell Show would be shown locally in Melbourne in April 2023.
The caption said, “We are happy to announce that Neighbours: The Farewell Show will be coming to Melbourne for a one-time special event in April 2023. This follows the tremendous response to the UK Neighbours: The Farewell Tour.
“Date, place, and pre-sale details to follow soon,” it continued.
The event’s actors have not yet been officially announced. Ryan Moloney, Jackie Woodburne, and Alan Fletcher were among the performers on the UK Tour.
It happens only a few weeks after the Australian soap opera’s finale, when the Erinsborough set was formally “dismantled.”
On July 28, the long-running series, which debuted in 1985, aired its final episode.
The famous swansong featured prominent appearances by Guy Pearce (Mike Young), Natalie Bassingthwaighte (Izzy Hoyland), Peter O’Brien (Shane Ramsay), and Harold Bishop actor Ian Smith.
They were joined by Paul Keane, who portrayed Des Clarke famously, Daniel MacPherson, who played Joel Samuels, Mark Little, who played Joe Mangel, and others.
Both Jason Donovan, who portrayed Scott Robinson, and Kylie Minogue, who is best recognised for playing Charlene Robinson, returned in these roles.
The spectacular conclusion was centred on Neighbours legend Toadie (Ryan Moloney) getting married to Melanie (Lucinda Cowden) and living happily ever after.
