The new series of Neighbours is set to land on our screens in September, and now we have the first full-length trailer for the show’s reboot, teasing plenty of drama and a huge wedding twist.


The footage also confirms that the new season of the show will be set two years after the finale that aired last summer on Channel 5, with Susan Kennedy (Jackie Woodburne) confirming that "a lot has happened in the last two years".

Alongside Woodburne, those returning for the revival include Alan Fletcher as Karl, Stefan Dennis as Robinson and Ryan Moloney as Toadie Rebecchi.

Guy Pearce will also be back as Mike Young, while newcomers include The OC’s Mischa Barton as Reese Sinclaire, "an American new to Erinsborough who’s not quite who she appears to be", according to the press release.

Ramsay Street will also be welcoming the Varga-Murphys - a new family bound to ruffle some feathers following their arrival.

Neighbours will be returning on Monday 18th September 2023.

From then, it will air from Monday to Thursday, every week.

In the meantime, classic Neighbours episodes are available to watch on Amazon Freevee.

The new series resumed filming back in April, with an on-set picture confirming the news.

Who will star in Neighbours in 2023?

So far, we know of four characters returning to Neighbours. They are...

  • Susan Kennedy played by Jackie Woodburne
  • Karl Kennedy played by Alan Fletcher
  • Paul Robinson played by Stefan Dennis
  • Toadie Rebecchi played by Ryan Moloney

As for who else, that's yet to be announced - but we'll keep this page up to date as we know more.

Several cast members took to social media on 17th November shortly after the announcement was made, saying they knew nothing of its revival.

That doesn't rule them out though, as some of their on-screen relatives will be back, so there's every possibility they could return.

How to watch the Neighbours revival

The Neighbours revival will air on Amazon Freevee in 2023.

Freevee is Amazon's free streaming service, which replaced IMDb TV.

Like other AVoD services, it shows adverts to generate money, rather than asking viewers to pay to subscribe and use the service.

In good news for Neighbours fans, thousands of classic episodes are now available to stream on Amazon Freevee.
