After 37 years as a mainstay of UK daytime television, Neighbours was controversially cancelled by Channel 5 last year, shocking the entire world. Fans who were outraged quickly started efforts to try and salvage the show.
After a happy finale in which celebrities like Margot Robbie, Guy Pearce, and Kylie Minogue made cameos, everyone thought Neighbours was done forever. However, in November, Amazon’s ad-supported streaming service Freevee brought the series back to life.
With a fall premiere planned, filming has resumed, and we are already counting down the days. Fans may watch hundreds of old episodes of the soap opera right now on Freevee, and more are anticipated this coming week.
