Following the amazing news Neighbours will return, fans can’t help but wonder one thing – what will the new era of Ramsay Street look like?

The news Amazon had saved the popular Australian soap broke last week, with a new season in the works and set to premiere exclusively for free on Freevee in the UK and US in 2023.

Amazon has also acquired the online rights to thousands of episodes from the previous years, all of which will be available to view prior to the new series’ premiere.

Production is set to commence in early 2023 with a world premiere slated for the second half of the year.

It’s already been confirmed stars Stefan Dennis, Alan Fletcher, Ryan Moloney, and Jackie Woodburne – who played Paul Robinson, Karl Kennedy, Toadie Rebecci and Susan – will return to reprise their leading roles and now, further information has been revealed about the next ‘season’ of the show.

‘The plan is for Neighbours to keep its format as a high-volume daily soap opera, so it’ll still be the show that fans know and love’, a source told Digital Spy.

‘Plans are being made for two new seasons, which will run for 200 episodes each. It’s an incredible result for fans, who thought they’d seen the last of the show when the finale aired in July.’

‘The logic for Freevee is that daily episode drops will keep fans checking back on the streaming service and engage with other content available.’

Thanks to Amazon Freevee, it means Neighbours will be able to reach the huge milestone of airing 9,000 episodes, with the final episode on Channel 5 being number 8,903.
