Neighbours finale confirmed on 10

It's a finale week for long-running soap, with a brand new date and time for the last ever episode.

10 has confirmed the final episode of Neighbours will screen on 10 -as well as 10 Peach- and on a new date: Thursday July 28.

This brings the finale forward from the original date Monday August 1st.

It isn’t clear if this means Australia will see the final scenes ahead of the UK.

Below is the video which screened to cast and media earlier this week, which brought some to tears…

After 37 years, 8903 episodes, countless marriages, deaths, births and disasters, it’s time to say goodbye to Neighbours.

The history making final episode of Australia’s longest running drama, will be simulcast on 10 and 10 Peach on Thursday, July 28 at 7:30pm, in a gripping and emotional 90-minute finale.

Favourites from the past return to Ramsay St to celebrate with our Erinsborough locals. In a massive homecoming there will be something for everyone spanning all generations of viewers from the opening scene in 1985.

Don’t miss an unmissable final week of Neighbours, which starts Monday, July 25.

  1. Although I don’t watch neighbours it’s good to see the finale episode show on the primary channel. The last time normal neighbours aired on the primary channel was back in late 2010 (that was the time when Neighbours was shunted to 11 as part of the Ten News Revolution).
    Hopefully it would be great to see all the credits for the people who were involved on the show in the past 37 years. Hopefully the people being involved in the show in the past 30 odd years will sing Neighbours together before rolling credits begin.

  2. I have a few good points here.
    Firstly, that’s brilliant news from 10 to air the final episode ever.
    Secondly for the end credits in the final episode I’m suggesting that they should air the piano theme to give a big farewell.
    Thirdly What a great tribute from network 10 its better than the loges tribute which was IMO really bad.
    And lastly well done David for keeping us up to date on the end of Neighbours.

  3. Thanks for the update, David.
    It’s still so sad that this show is ending. I just read an interview with Ian Smith (Harold), who lamented that the Australian Govt should have bought it, and put it on ABC, and used it as training ground for all involved. Would’ve been a good idea. I’m still in denial, I still hope someone can bring it back sometime. I’ve watched since the beginning, and it’s really sad to see this happen.

  4. Wow 12 episodes in the last week is a lot. Ep 8867 last night was outstanding. I was trying to figure out how they would fit 36 episodes into what was 17 nights or airing, but is now16. Your post solves this query thanks.

  5. Wow, that’s squeezing a lot into the final week. A feast and then a famine. So cynically I would say that 10 didn’t want to give up a higher rating Monday night to the soap. That is sad.

  6. Excellent news from 10. I have two simple asks of 10 for the finale: 1) allow the full closing credits to play out and, 2) no intrusive advertising watermarks on screen during the 90 minutes please.
