Today, Amazon Freevee announced a selection of celebrated former Neighbours episodes will launch on the streaming service on 23 February.
The drop will include all episodes from Season “2012,” featuring the show’s memorable first kiss between characters Chris and Aidan, as well as Toadie’s heartwarming proposal to Sonya, and Lucas and Vanessa’s dramatic wedding day. The library content will be available exclusively on Amazon Freevee in the U.S. and UK. Prime Video customers in Australia, New Zealand, Canada, Ireland, and South Africa will also have access to the previous seasons and episodes.
Additionally, a selection of the most legendary episodes of Neighbours will also launch on the platform, including a variety of episodes featuring actors Margot Robbie, Russell Crowe, Kylie Minogue, Jason Donovan, Guy Pearce, Natalie Imbruglia, and Liam Hemsworth.
After the initial drop, a library season of Neighbours will launch on the service every month until the show’s hotly anticipated premiere later this year. Starting February 28, the streaming service will also launch a variety of Neighbours linear free ad-supported streaming channels (aka FAST channels) including “Neighbours – Looking Back” (Channel 1) and “Best of Neighbours” (Channel 2).
The continuation of the long-running daily drama series—about the lives, loves, and challenges of the residents on Ramsay Street in Erinsborough, Australia, a fictional suburb of Melbourne—follows the finale in 2022, which was watched by millions of adoring fans. The revitalised series will premiere exclusively on Amazon Freevee in the UK and U.S. for free. Last year, Amazon Freevee and Fremantle announced they would be bringing back Neighbours, with Stefan Dennis, Alan Fletcher, Ryan Moloney, and Jackie Woodburne returning to reprise their leading roles. The series will also stream on Prime Video in Australia, New Zealand, Canada, Ireland, and South Africa. Production is set to commence this year with a world premiere slated for the second half of the year.
Neighbours ran for more than three decades and nearly 9,000 episodes, garnering fans across the globe and launching the careers of many household names. The Australian show has screened in multiple countries during its reign, including the UK, airing on both BBC One and, most recently, Channel 5, since its launch in 1985. The final episode of Neighbours aired in July 2022 and featured guest star appearances from Kylie Minogue, Guy Pearce, Jason Donovan, and Margot Robbie.
Neighbours is produced by Fremantle. Jason Herbison, Neighbours’ executive producer since 2013, will maintain his position on the exciting new chapter of Neighbours, with Andrew Thompson returning as producer.
Australia’s Network 10, which aired Neighbours for 36 years, will retain first-run rights in Australia for the new chapter of the series.
