Neighbours stars Kylie Minogue and Jason Donovan to return for series finale

    Kylie Minogue and Jason Donovan will star in the finale of the much-loved Australian serial Neighbours, bringing one of television’s most famous couples back to the small screen for one more time.

    The long-running series’ producers announced in March that it would be ending after 37 years.

    In a tweet on Twitter, the show’s executive producer Jason Herbison confirmed the return of Minogue and Donovan’s characters, Charlene and Scott.

    “Scott and Charlene are the quintessential Neighbours pair, and ending the programme without them would feel wrong,” he wrote.

    “We are thrilled that Jason and Kylie have come home to play a very special part in our series finale.”

    Herbison’s Instagram post also included a close-up image of the cover of a Neighbours screenplay, which Minogue and Donovan both shared.

    Before their departure in the 1980s, Minogue and Donovan were popular with viewers, and they will return to the show before it ends production in June.

    Guy Pearce, Margot Robbie, and Liam Hemsworth all got their start on the show.

    The decision to end the show came after the producers, Fremantle Media, were unable to find a new broadcaster when the show was dropped from Channel 5’s schedule in February.

    According to reports, the British network covered the majority of the show’s production costs.

    Neighbours airs on Network Ten in Australia.

    A spokesperson from Fremantle Media said the response from fans at the news of the show ending had been immense.

    “Everyone at Neighbours has been overwhelmed by the love and support from the audience since the news came out,” they said.

    “The show has brought a sunny slice of Australia into the homes of millions of viewers around the world, launching the careers of dozens of household names along way.

    “But as this chapter of Ramsay Street comes to a close, we promise to do everything we can to give the show the send-off it deserves.”

    The show is expected to finish airing its final episodes by September 2022.
