Neighbours last episode air date revealed – and there’s just months to go

Neighbours has confirmed the date of its final ever episode after the Australian show was sadly axed after 37 years – and there’s really not long to go.

Despite fan petitions and pleas from the cast and crew for the soap to continue, long-running programme Neighbours has revealed the last instalment will air on Monday 1 August 2022.

And it seems both Aussie and UK audiences will be able to enjoy the explosive finale at the same time, as they close the gap and align the episodes.

According to TV Tonight, Australian channel 10 Peach will start to broadcast double episodes from Monday June 13 in order to catch up with the UK broadcast.

A spokesperson for Network 10 told the publication: “From Monday June 13, friends of Ramsay St can tune into double the fun, double the action with double episodes to celebrate the final season of Neighbours.”

They then confirmed: “The ultimate series finale will air on Monday August 1.”

And it sounds like die hard soap fans are in for a treat, as the much-loved cast have begun to tease details of what they can expect as the soap’s chapter closes.

Jemma, who plays Harlow Robinson has assured viewers that the last episode will not disappoint.

Opening up in a recent interview, the 21 year old, who is the daughter of Neighbours alumni Jason Donovan, revealed that she’s looking forward to seeing what people make of the ending.

She said: “Our fans are so invested in the programme, and I love that they dissect and analyse even the most minute detail – now that’s dedication!”

And while she remained quiet on exactly what soap bosses have planned, as she didn’t want to spoil the surprise, the star continued to say that it would no doubt wow viewers.

Jemma said: “I know our fans are going to be blown away by what is being planned for the finale, very celebratory…but that’s all I’m saying for the moment.”

This comes after fans were left devastated when the show confirmed it would no longer be on our screens.

A statement shared on the show’s official Twitter read: “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.
