Neighours gets set for it’s biggest week ever

The biggest week in the 31-year history of the iconic Australian drama Neighbours is here, kicking off Monday, April 4.

The action-packed week begins when a catastrophic event rips through Lassiters, destroying part of the complex and injuring several high-profile members of the Neighbours family. The episode also introduces the mysterious John Doe (Home And Away alum Andrew Morely) who is sure to bring a fair bit of mystery.

The following night (Tuesday, 5 April) sees the series’ first-ever one hour episode. In one of Neighbours’ most heart-breaking and emotional scenes, Ramsay Street will farewell one of their favourite residents for good. With more to come before the week is out, fans are advised to stock up on the tissues.

After shaking up Karl (Alan Fletcher) and Susan’s (Jackie Woodburne) marriage 20 years ago, Sarah Beaumont (Nicola Charles) is back for more. Having been injured in the Lassiters complex, Karl carries her to safety, much to Susan’s shock. What could possibly be the reason for the reappearance of Neighbours’ most notorious home wrecker?

Sarah isn’t the only blast from the past to appear this week. Kyle (Chris Milligan) finds himself torn between his ex-wife and his current girlfriend. When Georgia (Saskia Hampele) makes an unexpected return to Erinsborough, she makes Kyle a proposition

Neighbours Executive Producer, Jason Herbison, said: “Every episode this  week sees brand new stories unfold, including returning characters, mysterious strangers and jeopardy for all our beloved favourites. The fallout will be felt for months to come.”

With two devastating deaths, two shock returns and two intriguing arrivals, this is a week off Neighbours viewers can’t miss as the fallout is felt for weeks to come.

Neighbours airs 6:30pm weeknights on Eleven
