GOOD FRIENDS: Annie Jones, Rebekah Elmaloglou, Georgie Stone and Tim Kano are all returning to ‘Neighbours’

ANNIE Jones, Rebekah Elmaloglou, Georgie Stone and Tim Kano are all returning to ‘Neighbours’ as show regulars, while Ian Smith, Melissa Bell and April Rose Pengilly will make guest appearances.

The Australian soap is due to return to screens later this year after Amazon Freevee bought the rights just months after the show came to an end last July after 37 years on screen and now it has been announced that the quartet – who play Jane Harris, Terese Willis, Mackenzie Hargreaves and Leo Tanaka respectively – have all confirmed they will be back as series regulars.

In addition, Ian Smith (Harold Bishop), April Rose Pengilly (Chloe Brennan) and Melissa Bell (Lucy Robinson) will return in guest roles.

The seven stars will join previously-announced ‘Neighbours’ legends Stefan Dennis, Alan Fletcher, Jackie Woodburne and Ryan Moloney in coming back to the show.

Georgie and April both previously admitted they had no idea if they would be involved with the ‘Neighbours’ revival.

Posting shortly after the four stars revealed ‘Neighbours’ would be coming back in a promotional video, Georgie wrote on Instagram: “Thanks for all the DMs! Only found out Neighbours was returning when you all did, so I have no idea if I’m coming back! But thanks for asking and wanting more of Mackenzie.”

And while April Rose Pengilly admitted news the show has been saved is “very exciting”, she had no idea if she would be heading back to Erinsborough.

She commented: “Before you all start asking me about the Neighbours news that just dropped. I/most of us don’t know anything about it and are finding out at the same time as you, so don’t have any info for you, sorry! Very exciting news for you all, though.(sic)”

She then shared the announcement video and said: “This is all the info I have for you so please stop DMing me haha.(sic)”

And she also posted a clip of Chloe looking shocked and wrote: “Literally all of us in the group chat rn (sic).”

Amazon Freevee will broadcast the soap in the UK and US, and it will also stream on Prime Video in Canada, Ireland, New Zealand, and South Africa, and will be available seven days after launch on Prime Video in Australia. 

Previous seasons of the show, as well as many iconic episodes, are currently available on Amazon Freevee and the streamer has also launched the ‘Neighbours – Looking Back’ FAST Channel, with ‘Best of Neighbours’ following on 7 March.
