Meanwhile, British network Channel 5, which foots most of the production costs and airs Neighbours in the UK, has confirmed the soap’s finale will air on Friday, July 29.

Channel 5 will air three full episodes that day. One episode will air in the soap’s usual time slots of 1:45pm and then again at 6pm.

A double-length finale of the final two episodes will air primetime at 9pm for UK viewers.

Fans were left reeling after the shock announcement earlier this year that Neighbours was axed after Fremantle Media’s major partner, Channel 5, decided to withdraw its partnership and ultimately stop funding the program.

The team at Neighbours are going all out for the production, going so far as to bring back Kylie Minogue and Jason Donovan in their iconic roles as Charlene and Scott Robinson.

While fans will have to wait until July 28 to find out how Neighbours will end, executive producer Jason Herbison has promised he won’t be blowing up Ramsay Street in a blaze of glory.

“I would never, ever blow it up,” Jason told TV Blackbox. “The ending will be a celebration of the past and the present, with the door very much left open for a future.

“Ramsay Street is eternal and I like to think it will live on in the hearts and minds of the viewers, long after the final scene.”
