How will Neighbours end?
When TV Tonight asked Neighbours' executive producer Jason Herbison if he would consider blowing Ramsay Street up in the farewell, he was quick to shut the suggestion down.
“I would never, ever blow it up,” Jason emphasised. “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.”
Other than that, the exec producer kept his cards close to his chest regarding the finale's plot.

Why is Neighbours ending?
After nearly four decades on our screens, it was confirmed on 3rd March 2022 that beloved soap was coming to an end.
The sad news was announced via the official Neighbours Twitter account on Thursday evening.
"We are so sorry to say that after nearly 37 years and almost 9000 episodes broadcast we have to confirm that Neighbours will cease production in June," the first Tweet in the series read.
The statement went on to explain the reasoning behind the axing.
"Following the loss of our key broadcast partner in the UK and despite an extensive search for alternative funding, we simply have no option but to rest the show."
The Tweet continued by thanking the show's "amazing" and "loyal" fans, while also promising to deliver an unforgettable finale.
"We know this is a huge disappointment, as it is to all of us on the team. We thank you for all your messages and support and promise to end the show on an incredible high. From here on, we are celebrating Neighbours."
