Fans of Australia’s longest running drama will get more of what they love when Neighbours celebrates its 35th birthday with more drama cross one week in March.
In celebration of the big birthday, Network 10 is presenting a week of special anniversary episodes from Monday, 16 March at 6:30pm, plus an additional five explosive episodes at 7:00pm on 10 Peach.
The explosive anniversary week kicks off with Chloe Brennan’s (April Rose Pengilly) genius idea to stage a wedding expo. This evolves into five unique weddings, which reunites couples from different decades on Ramsay Street that didn’t quite make it down the aisle.
But, in stark contrast to the romance and love of the weddings, the 7:00pm episodes exude a darker, grittier and drama-filled plot that includes the death of three Erinsborough favourites!
The drama of the additional five episodes centres around Elly Conway (Jodi Anasta) being whisked away to Pierce Greyson’s (Tim Robards) remote island glamping resort to celebrate her 35th birthday with a key group of her Ramsay Street friends.
What the holiday makers don’t know is that Finn Kelly’s evil side has been unmasked and he’s hatched his ultimate deadly revenge plan that will deliver severe consequences.
With some of the favourite neighbours on the island and three deaths on the horizon, these are episodes fans won’t want to miss.
Neighbours patriarch, Stefan Dennis said: “Who would have thought hey? I remember nearly 35 years ago I said it would last about six months, well who is eating their words now! I’m incredibly proud to be a part of Neighbours reaching this milestone, it’s a fabulous celebration for everyone involved, cast and crew, to mark this moment with an awesome week of episodes planned for our viewers. A touch of nostalgia mixed in with some edge of your seat drama – something for everyone.”
Executive producer of Neighbours Jason Herbison said: “We have a reputation for going big with our milestones – and this is our biggest yet. We’re excited to deliver our viewers a double dose of Neighbours which will lead to three deaths and five weddings. There’s warmth and nostalgia as well as high drama and – for the first time ever – we’ll have a week-long narrative taking place separate to the happenings in Erinsborough. Neighbours is 35 years young and we are celebrating with a bang!”
