Neighbours’ cast admit that they STILL have ‘no idea’ which iconic characters are set to return to the rebooted Amazon series – as they tease ‘huge’ storyline
It’s set to return to the small screen in the form of a brand new Amazon Freevee reboot later this year.
And while revamped soap Neighbours is just days away from the beginning of filming, the cast have admitted that they still have ‘no idea’ what they’ll be filming – or who with.
Speaking this week, long-standing cast member Alan Fletcher, teased that while they know the first storyline will be ‘huge’, it’s even being kept secret from him and his fellow actors.
‘It’s a big story and will involve a lot of people but we don’t know anything about it,’ admitted the star, who plays Karl Kennedy on the show.
While the final episode of the Channel 5 show brought in former stars such as Guy Pearce, Kylie Minogue and Margot Robbie – no one has a clue who will be back for the Amazon rebirth either.

Return? While the final episode of the Channel 5 show brought in former stars such as Kylie Minogue and Jason Donovan- no one has a clue who will be back for the Amazon rebirth either
Alan is among the confirmed cast members for the show, with Annie Jones and Ryan Moloney also guaranteed to come back, amongst others.
But while talking this week to The Sun, the actors admitted that they aren’t too sure what they’re coming back to do.
The cast are still eagerly awaiting their first script in anticipation, all having no idea what’s in store for their characters.
Annie, who portrays Jane Harris, shared of the storyline: ‘ Who knows? Maybe Jane will be heartbroken, maybe I’m only in the show for a couple of weeks and I go off with Mike. We’ve seen a script cover, that is it.’
While Alan ensured that writers have said the comeback will be ‘huge’, but that it’s completely ‘under wraps’.
‘It’s a big story and will involve a lot of people but we don’t know anything about it. There will come a day when your inbox goes ‘ping’ and it will say first script. Everyone will read it and the WhatsApp group will go mad,’ he shared.
Adding that it won’t be until the cast are in a meeting together that they’ll know who is back, Ryan explaiend: ‘We’re going to have a big Zoom meeting, and in that meeting we’re going to see people’s faces pop up on the screen, and we’re going to be like “Oh my god, that person is back.” We don’t know who they’ve got. Nobody knows. It’s all very exciting.’
Fans will undoubtably be looking forward to seeing who returns too after the finale welcomed back some old – and now very famous – faces.

The soap is known for giving Australian actors a step-up into acting, with a slew of A-list stars owing their beginnings to the soap.
And paying homage to that, stars such as Kylie Minogue, Jason Donovan, Margot Robbie and Guy Pearce all returned in style for the show’s Channel 5 finale.
But since it’s been renewed, fans will be eager to see whether tight-lipped bosses have managed to secure the big names back for any more cameos.
The original series was cancelled in March 2022 after 37 years, only for its revival to be announced in November.
As the announcement was made, it was also revealed that only four cast-members had been told ahead of the announcement – Alan, Ryan, Stefan Dennis and Jackie Woodburne.
But this week, Annie was confirmed to be reprising her role alongside Tim Kano, Georgie Stone and Rebekah Elmaloglou.
The series will air for free on Amazon Freevee in the UK and US and will include streaming rights to thousands of episodes from previous seasons. The series will stream on Prime Video in Australia, New Zealand, and Canada.
