NEIGHBORHOOD bosses may be hoping to reunite two of Ramsay Street’s biggest former stars during the show’s heartbreaking finale.
Neighbours, an Australian soap opera that aired on Channel 5 for 40 years, has been canceled, but executives are in talks to bring back two famous characters who first appeared on the show in the 1980s. It was revealed earlier this month that the program would stop in August of this year, just weeks before it would have celebrated its 40th anniversary. They’re hoping to persuade pop singers Kylie Minogue, who portrayed Charlene Robinson, and Jason Donovan, who played Scott Robinson, that the program should end on a high note.
Jason has told execs that he’s open to a final cameo, but he wants pop princess Kylie Jenner, 53, to join him.
According to reports, Fremantle Australia has been in talks with Channel 5 to keep the show on the air, but no agreement has yet been reached.
Some fans are concerned that this will be the final season of the popular show, but with a reunion as massive as the one planned, viewers will be able to see their two favorite characters reconnect for the final time.
According to reports, Jason has informed the producers that he will be flying to Melbourne in April, which might mean an emotional homecoming to Ramsay Street.
The TV actor would reunite with his on-screen love Kylie, but bosses are optimistic that their long-awaited reunion would take place.
According to a show insider, the team is keen to end the show on a “real high”.
Speaking to The Sun, the source said: “Kylie has always been a huge supporter of the show, they’re just waiting to hear back.”
Charlene was portrayed as a feisty, hot-tempered, and outspoken tomboyish character.
She had a tense relationship with her mother and disliked being patronized, but the actor’s growing romance with co-star Jason, who became the serial’s new “pin-up” character, drew viewers in.
Following their brief relationship, they went on to have a number one song with Especially For You.
While a comeback appearance has yet to be announced, what may viewers expect to see if they do make a final appearance on Channel 5?
Their marriage was put to the test by financial difficulties and infidelity during their last appearance on the show.
Charlene’s grandfather Dan Ramsay (Syd Conabere) gave her a mechanic apprenticeship in Brisbane, and the pair purchased a home there.
She had no choice but to go without Scott, who was compelled to stay behind and wait for a job move, which he received ten months later.
Charlene and Scott may return to Ramsay Street upon their return, bringing with them all the memories of their early relationship.
Viewers may expect to witness the couple and their children who have lived miles away from their beginnings in Brisbane.
When they meet up with other members of the group on the street, an emotional Charlene may suggest that they stay and start a new life with their pals.
Fans of the long-running soap have petitioned for Especially For You to return to the charts on Twitter.
With Valentine’s Day approaching, a re-release of the track would be an appropriate homage.
