Neighbours coming back for new series on Amazon Freevee months after controversial axe

Neighbours is confirmed to be making a shock return to TV, just months after fans were left devastated by its axe.

Many die hard viewers of the Australian soap still haven't come to terms with the fact that it's been axed after 37 years, after its UK broadcaster, Channel 5 pulled the plug, deciding it no longer had a place on its schedule.

What everyone believed would be the last ever episode of Neighbours aired in the UK and Australia at the end of July, with its closing week and finale seeing a return to Ramsey Street for the likes of Kylle Minogue and Jason Donovan and Guy Pearce, while other big names from the Aussie soap's history, including Natalie Imbruglia, Holly Valance and Delta Goodrem appearing on screen.

There was genuine sadness as credits rolled on the final episode, with a look back at the different eras and versions of Neighbours famous theme tune, as people across the world couldn't quite believe the show was ending.

And the even better news is that, as well as a brand new series, the platform has also promised fans classic episode to binge as well.

A post on the Neighbours Twitter account revealed all, with the post reading: "Breaking News from Erinsborough! Neighbours will return for a brand-new series next year exclusively on @AmazonFreevee, alongside thousands of episodes from previous seasons to stream as you please."

Teasing details of Freevee, a tweet underneath read: " #Neighbours will be available on @AmazonFreevee in the UK and US and will return to @channel10au in Australia. We can’t thank you all enough for your love and support and are so excited for this new adventure!"
