Earlier this year, it was suddenly announced that the Aussie show 'Neighbours' was coming to an end. 

The long-running soap ended in July after 37 years with a special final episode that featured guest appearances from former show actors Kylie Minogue, Jason Donovan, Margot Robbie, Natalie Imbruglia, and Guy Pearce.

And now Neighbours' Twitter page has announced the big news that it is coming back with a new season. 

"Breaking News from Erinsborough" they wrote. 

They shared a clip of Susan Kennedy running to her husband Dr. Karl and Toadfish asking them if they have heard of the big news. 

The actors then hinted that the timing of their new release will be in the "second half of next year". 

“We’re coming back,” the stars then announce.

“Thank you for all the love and loyalty you’ve shown us here at Neighbours,” Dr. Karl said. 

“We miss you and we can’t wait to see you again,” says Susan.

“We can’t wait to begin this exciting new adventure with you.”

Thousands of their classic episodes and all the new episodes from the new season will be exclusively released on Amazon Freevee and Prime Video. 

“Neighbours has captivated its audience for nearly 40 years, building a dedicated and loyal following for the lives and stories of the characters on Ramsay Street,” Lauren Anderson from Amazon Studios said. 

“We look forward to immersing the audience in new Ramsay Street experiences when we relaunch the show next year for Amazon Freevee and Prime Video customers.”

Jennifer Mullin, the global CEO of Fremantle, said: “Neighbours is a unique series with a powerful connection with its fans across the world. We cherish the show and all those who have been part of its incredible story over many decades, so we are thrilled that we have found a new home with Amazon Freevee.

“Thanks to the innovative Amazon Freevee platform, many classic episodes will be available to fans, and Neighbours will go back into full production in Australia early next year, providing our fans with new episodes.
